State Of The Nation 1

The Path out of corporate slavery starts in your home!

It is becoming increasingly clear that protesting is having little effect of late while we cannot let this deter us we need to take up a new stance! We have been fighting the corrupted on their turf where they have advantage and supremacy. We need to shift focus and do something radical! Now I can hear some of you say yeah we need to riot, bash windows ect and I say absolutely not! -Because that is what they expect and are prepared for. What we need to do is a grand scale retreat or let’s say purge them from our universe! How you say? -By becoming Autonomous, self sustaining and as independent as possible of their dealings.

1-Those of us who have Money could buy land and offer to share it with people who want to help them build self sustaining Microcommunities.

2-Those who do not want to share their land could at least teach those who want to learn how to be off grid and self-reliant how to do so and maybe share their produce overage with the less fortunate.

3- Those who have businesses could start offering a barter and trading system next to the conventional money system.

Becoming self reliant, growing your own food is no longer limited to rural landscapes and the country- New technology such as Hydro and Aquaponics, window and roof gardens make it not only possible but affordable if people are just taught how to do it. People could band together and buy up abandoned buildings in the city and create alternative living space.

Talent, produce, homemade products, time and even project based work could be bartered and traded, expanding the concept of time banks. Parents should band together and open alternative free schools for their children because we do not want the next generation to be poisoned by today’s society’s values!

We need to start building our own wireless networks that we can eventually interconnect – why? Because as much as we all love the internet let us not forget who built it and we need a second option!

We need to build our own radio and TV stations and those of us who are creative a truly alternative Music, art and Movie culture far away from the copywrite Nazi’s and the money mongers.

All these projects could network and share resources ideas and inventions all of it outside of the corporate, political power nexus …

will this be easy – Absolutely not! Not only will we receive pushback by those we oppose, but probably horrendous squabbling and drama within our own ranks – however if we prevail and evolve though the process we can in time create a sound counter culture that can transition us into true autonomy one step at the time.

The dissatisfaction with our current society Model is no longer just limited to a few hippies, communists, anarchists and moochers…it is global and wide spread phenomenon.

If those with similar goals and mind set build enclaves to their liking and start working with similarly inclined or likeminded groups or projects we actually have a chance of creating real change!

We are no longer just a few thousands we are effectively millions! Millions of lab rats that can cause a big chink in the cooperate-political armour if we decide to step off the hamster wheel; fact is without us they are nothing without our purchasing power they will dwindle and die out. I am not saying become unwashed hermits, I am saying become as autonomous as possible and reclaim your freedom!

Alex of Mutanthouse

Update and renewed call for assistance with much needed veterinary care !

Hello Alex here , First of all I would like to thank those that have helped with saving our beloved Jubilee , She will make a full recovery , without your help the 1300 vet bill would have been unsurmountable- so thank you again between our 3 sponsors a good third of the bill was taken out of our hands ❤ thank you ❤

Jubilee has beaten the odds and will make a full recovery YAY!

Second I would like to introduce to you all Little Malcolm aka Mal who Kay found abandoned in a rainy parking lot 😦 at 8 weeks he has now become the youngest and newest Mutanthouse Resident . He will be joining Tim and Kay's pod and family unit ❤ Let's greet him properly 😀

Hello Malcolm welcome home 😀

Now to the uncomfortable stuff:P – Sadly we still have a boatload of procedures and follow-up care to deal with , Jubilee will still require medication for the next month and fluids, Kay’s new additions Mal and Ren need shots , Little Miss Harriette has not been feeling to well of late and I would like to have her checked out . Once Tim is down here we can finally transport Moobert to the vet for his much needed shots and his Stella and Sophia will need them too…. for now those are the most pressing issues but we still have some long term medical treatments that will need to be addressed.

winter is coming and Cassiopeia will need to be checked, vetted and finally brought in so we can end her transition from stray to full fledged Housemate. April MoonFlower aka Moo and Luna who are both heart-worm positive will need to go into treatment, Moo has fatty tumours that need to be operated , Moobert , Mooria and Romeo still need to be tested for heart-worm… since I (Alex ) have been doing all this on a very small budget since I lost my job in 2008 and Kay and Tim are just relocating and are not settled in yet we really could need help with all this…we would be thankful for any assistance you can provide no amount is to small.

Call for Assistance

Dear friends and supporters of Mutanthouse as you know Mutanthouse is home to a lot of elderly furies from which one Jubilee is ailing from liver and kidney related issues, while she is getting batter the vet costs have become astronomical. Our current budget is slightly limited and we are facing an onslaught of vet costs in the next few months – a heartworm treatment and an operation for April Moonflower aka Moo, Shots and recovery care for Little miss trinity aka Wren, Romeo and Mooria Georgina, need to be tested for heartworm, Stella, Sophia and Moobert Oi all need their shots and it is fleas season so with 27 furies not including the local strays we are trying to assist there is a lot coming. Also although little Hariette teeth have recovered in our care one of them is sadly beyond redemption and will need to be removed. We have still not decided if we shall treat miss Luna for heartworm due to her advanced age but if she remains stable another $400 will be added to the bill..Then we have Cassiopeia our resident stray that we want to being into the house but first have to have evaluated and vetted..The list goes on and on …we would be thankful for any assistance you can provide no amount is to small.

Mutanthouse Wants YOU!!!

 The Mutanthouse project was originally just designed as blog that was to follow the transformation of my house and property into a self-sustaining eco-Earthship-tree-house-hybrid.  I wanted to  make my home a place that would  reflect my beliefs and  provide a better living  quality for my Dog’s  and myself .  At some point I realised that there had to be  others out there that where struggling  that did not have the home base which  they could build upon , that was the moment I decided that I wanted to expand the project  and open it up to others in need of a home and security. The idea to transform my property into a self-sustaining microcomutinty with a communal man house and smaller interconnected personal units began to form.  Having a place to call home, where you can express your self is more valuable than one thinks, and I want to provide this for others. You can find some of my general ideas for the project on the mutant house blog mentioned above but also a condensed version on my TMS blog (http://www.tzmnetwork.com/blogs/658/17/mutanthouse-project-as-functioni  ).

If you are interested in assisting with the project with ideas, labour or resources please contact me here and we can exchange emails if needed ;). I am in dire need of help, architecture students who want to go wild and build something are welcome as is anyone with any idea or contribution they would like to realise on the premises that is in alignment with the general ideology of mutant house.

If you think you would like to become a part of the Mutant house family as permanent resident of the project, please read the blog first and be aware that we will need to be in agreement with a few key factors. A community can only work if there is a common ideology and shared core beliefs, while there are always variations and one must be willing to compromise there are some points I am not willing to compromise on when it comes to sharing my life and living space:

1) Religious tolerance – I personally believe in GOD, but my view does not necessarily fit any margin. My belief enriches my life but it is not the focal point of my humanitarian or eco-political work. If you ask me  what I believe I will tell you but seriously it is not  really important to me  when it comes to interpersonal  communication and friendship . Your actions are what are important to me, and the things you stand for.   I have friends from all faiths as well as agnostic and Atheist friends. I will not tolerate any bashing from any side, logical discussions are fine  but anyone living here should feel comfortable  living their  belief, or lack of ,  without having the feeling of being  belittled , force-converted or looked down upon .

If you are of faith and cannot live with an atheist without constantly trying to convert them and telling them that they will go to hell or whatever other thing you might believe- Mutant house is not for you.

If you are an Atheist and constantly feel the need to make fun of or belittle another’s faith, or make snide comments on their intelligence  just for believing something  Mutant house is not for you – Pure and simple.

 

2) I am a vegan for both ethical but also for ecological reasons. At this current point of our history the support of the meat/Dairy /egg industry is one of the least publicised crimes towards the sustainability of resources and our planets survival.  Considering that it is one of the largest contributing factors to Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and the depletion of our rainforests, I cannot compromise on the following- within Mutanthouse; anyone wanting to become permanent resident within the project should be either Vegan or Vegetarian.

3) Animals, trees and children at Mutant house are to be treated with respect and none violently. No animal will be killed, or physically punished on the premises. Parents who are permanent residents should be in agreement that children raised here will never be subject to physical or emotional violence. None of the trees on the property will be chopped down just because they might be “in the way!”  These trees have lived here long before we did and we will find ways to build around them!

4) Any person applying for permanent residentship  will have to live here for a trial period  of six months, which will either be extended if the existing residents need more time to decide , or a final decision will be agreed upon by the existing residents.  A permanent resident will then receive all rights to vote on major decisions within the project, create projects of their own as well as claiming permanent living space on the compound which will be designed and agreed upon in communion with the existing residents.

All this being said  I am  really looking for people  who want to live and work with me on this project , so if you need a place to stay , live and grow  let me know !

Mutanthouse as functioning micro community

I haven’t been posting   much of late, mostly because I have been crunching numbers, intaking new ideas and concepts. In the last  month I have realised something , while  it is inherently important to me  to  make  this home a safe please for my animals and myself , The idea of  sharing this  space with other like minded people has become  equally important.

My property might be in a less favourable part of town, but it is inherently beautiful with wonderful trees and vast opportunities. My neighbourhood in many ways reflects the global issues we are facing so it is actually the ideal vintage point to prove that change is possible.

If I ( I hope one day we )  succeed into making this place  a functioning  micro community , it will not only  turn this  piece of land into  an example of  a functioning concept, but also become a beckon of hope  for this struggling  town. Not only could this place become home to people, but we could also actively help the community, by sharing the produce grown here with our struggling neighbours.  We could also help make life better for the multitude of stray animals in this neighbourhood , as well as provide  help with homework  for kids, a safe place to play (playground ) … things like that . If we run out of space and we find the funding we could expand   , there is a lot of unstructured property surrounding mine as well as an array of abandoned and deteriorating properties.

We could offer services to the community which they could intern exchange for services of their own. Maybe at some point we could open a small onsite and online school because education is a great platform to implement change.

Right now a lot of people are hurting, they have nowhere to go, or the existing family-structures have failed them. This could be an opportunity to be a different kind of family, a sanctuary for those who have not found their spot yet: or/and a transition gateway for those who want to build similar projects of their own. I am aware that  in the end I cannot do this on my own  but I am sort of  bopping that the magic of “if you build it they will come “ will work here , and that  something valuable will come of this.

I am aware that  there are things  that will need to be , thought out more in detail : that maybe not all people interested will turn out to be compatible , but we will  have to just  go though the trial and error  process.  It is definitely better than doing nothing or giving up.

If it works however this place could become a little utopian island in a rocky sea, it could also inspire others that might be in a similar situation like me to do the same. We could incorporate and teach awesome philosophies such as Resourced based economy, sustainable living and renewable energy, holistic medicine ect.  The things we invent and create could be placed under creative commons and open source, there is just so much that could be done.   I would really like it to come to that  🙂
