Transition Towns: Skill Sharing for a New Age of Urban Homesteading

Simple living is a voluntary practice to simplify ones lifestyle. It's a way of living that embraces frugality, living with less, and the simplicity of a back to basics way of life. It has long been viewed as a way of attaining a peaceful life, and it is financially achieved through self-sufficiency. Many Christians long to live a separated life from the world and its materialism, and live closer to the Lord. The Amish are an example of this style of living, also those who homestead.

Since it is a wonderful way to live, many New Agers are inclined to it as well. The key difference is that they are mainly motivated by saving Mother Earth to reduce their personal carbon and ecological footprint. What they don't realize is that they've been fooled into desiring a simple lifestyle on a false pretense and of uncertainty of the future. Thus the simple lifestyle of the Transition Movement will prepare towns and cities from a voluntary lifestyle choice to one that is involuntary.

We're all Homesteaders Now
Using The Transition Handbook as their guide, cities and towns around the world are using it to become sustainable for the long haul, in cooperation with their local Agenda 21 representative. One of the tools being used to build stronger communities is skills sharing. Still in its early stages, initiatives like this will eventually gain the support and cooperation of local associations and institutions. Since large corporations are working hand-in-hand with the New World Order, they will willingly participate in the fashionable new concern for sustainability.

Those who participate in these skill sharing sessions are told that they are helping to create a more resilient community, which will require them to be adept in a wide range of skills. These skills, which have been undervalued for the past 25 years, such as: food growing, beekeeping, canning, jam-making, raising chickens, knitting, weaving, natural dyes - will be taught in preparation for the community meltdown created by Agenda 21. The areas that have shown the most willing to transition are typically in liberal states, such as Washington, Vermont, and Illinois.

Here is a video from an Illinois Skills Sharing  local workshop.

The Bottom-line 
Agenda 21, the UN blueprint for global transformation, sounds good to many well meaning people. Drafted for the purpose of creating "sustainable societies," it has been welcomed by nations around the world. Political and cultural leaders, as well as the media, have embraced its goals of a healthy planet. They hide the lies behind its doomsday scenarios and fraudulent science. Relatively few consider the contrary facts and extreme costs.

Drinking the "sustainable communities for a healthy city elixir" is one transformational agenda your community will not want. If allowed in, a city near you will attempt to save the planet by trading cars for bikes, create open markets for "self-sustaining communities," and design "human settlements" (located on transit lines) where everyone can dialogue, share common ground, and be equal.

Does this sound like a place where you want to live? Socialism/Communism/Fascism has always produced poverty, not prosperity. Collectivism creates oppression, not freedom [1]- no matter how positive they make it sound.

I don't suggest demonstrations or resistance, but the people involved in these transformational activities should know the truth behind what they are involved in. Wouldn't you want to know if it were you?

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?" Matthew 6:25,27
