Transportation

If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around. View Discussions

Housing

A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community.

Energy

Renewable, carbon-based, local, regional, cross-border, steamed from tar, extracted from the wind, waves, or sun, energy is the stuff of modern human life. We can live without it, but few of us would. Rather, we waste it with abandon. Here is the place to discuss our relationship to the powerful force that is nature's fury. Wield it carefully, or not at all. View Discussions

Economics

Politics is tactics, economics is strategy. If you want to change the world, change the economic relationship between people, their terms of trade, their relative economic value in the global "marketplace." If the heart of politics is local, the basis of economics is your wallet. Vote with it. That vote will count for more than every other you case. Here is where we discuss the financial ties that bind us together, or rip us apart. Lets make it the former, and let's put us all on a more equal footing. View Discussions
