I Was Told To Give Everything Away Yesterday.

So, it is no secret that I am living in my RV to build up my savings and improve my future. 

It is also no secret that I believe that it is possible, and strongly desired, that I and those around me succeed at the same time.

I do not believe that the best outcomes come from all of us clubbing each other over the head for the last dollar floating around between us. 

I believe in cooperation and consensus in tackling the common problems and in so doing, along the way, build each other up so that everyone succeeds: in whatever manner they determine success to be.

Yet, because of this outlook (more specifically not embracing the “live and let die” motto of hard-core capitalism) I have been labelled . . . wait for it . . . you know what’s coming . . . a communist.

And because I have been labelled a communist, the natural next thing is to be told (I’m paraphrasing here) “hey Commie, you have some cash, you should give it to those less fortunate than you.”

I know that the attempt is to point out the hypocrisy of me (the afforelabelled Communist) having any money at all. After all, all communists believe in everyone sharing everything, right?)

I am not a Communist, I am a “Fedrationist” (as in building the “Star Trek” future). 

I believe in building a place and a world where everyone has what they need to survive and can move forward from there to thrive and succeed (again, in whatever manner they determine success to be).

If success to them means starting a business and growing it, do that. If success to them means creating Art, do that. If success means pursuing Science, knowledge and the advancement thereof, do that.

I do not believe in taking from someone to give to someone else, I don’t believe in taking anything from anyone. I believe in living and let living and finding a way to build people up, to help everyone succeed.

Nobody needs to lose for you to succeed. I don’t need to be poor to believe in helping other people. I will do that, I will get there, but I need to build my savings so I can get my land first. 

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
