Forum Post: Start with an economy of mutuality and they won't get one dollar

I just had an idea today I would like to share.

There was a lot said about taxes, the Fed and the banksters within the last weeks. But I think people can start something new without them getting one dollar.

Start on a small scale with an economy without using any money, an ecomony of mutuality. For example you cut my hair and I cook for you or I repair your car and you give me a lesson in Spanish.Or even better I do something for you for free because it is my pleasure. If you are doing this no money is used and the banksters and shareholders don't even get one cent. I mean we cannot substitute the whole money system but at least it is a start.

I thing the real problem behind all this is egoism, isolation, greed, fear and ignorance. 1) Get rid of egoism by doing things for other people 2) Get rid of isolation by interacting and by building small groups which support each other 3) Get rid of greed by asking yourself how much you really need to be happy "Knowing that enough is enough, you will always have enough" 4) Get rid of fear by realising that we will loose all if we don't act immediately "like well fed sheeps on their way to the slaughterhouse" 5) Get rid of ignorance by informing yourself and enlighten others

Small steps for anyone of us but a huge step for mankind

Thanks for your reply. It depends on the scale, but it could start something.

But you are right, the other issues have to be addressed with increased effort.

EXCELLENT IDEA!. The only problem is, we really do need to still get the government(and by extension corporations) out of our interests. Did you know that barter economies are still taxable?
