A crash course in changing the world.
I'm currently fifteen in 2011 and will be one-hundred years old in 2096. The indigenous knowledge I will spread is to keep your life local. Buy local food and goods, use local services, go to local schools and avoid big corporations. By doing this one benefits their own community greatly. Money circulates and jobs are available for local people. This is how towns, cities and countries can sustain themselves. It is also important on a larger scale. For instance, hardly any products are made in the U.S. and because we focus so heavily on imports, there is no money being circulated within our own country. The other problem is outsourcing. In the U.S. one may have to pay workers minimum wage to work in their factory, but when one outsources their factory to a poor country where they can pay workers a very small wage. This can be appealing to business owners because it means one is saving a great deal of money, but it is something that must stop, in order to uplift American spirits and economics. No local work means no local monetary flow and this leads to financial recession and moral depression.
