To build a tribe of people with whom a share the moral valuing of peace over violence, for a life based on reciprocity, not exploitation.
That means to live in harmony with nature, not on it, but in it, like we used to.
To quit civilization, a culture saturated in power and hierarchy, because life is ultimately a cooperative process.
To take us down from our destructive perch as lords above and return us to our honest place in a circle.
To participate in the endless cycle of life, death and regeneration.
To value justice, humility, compassion to create a world of connection instead of domination.
To create a sustainable human culture, teach our children to protect and cherish the earth, our only home.
To leave modern society which is in the middle of a long, slow collapse. To create a self-sufficient community in rural area so that as Western culture continues to collapse, we aren't caught in the middle of it. To grow food without chemicals, to raise animals on pasture without grains, to respect nature as much as we can, and to improve ourselves as individuals and as a species, so that we don't just create another behemoth civilization full of evil that ends up destroying itself.
I'm polyamorous, I can't see myself in a monogamous relationship.
Throwing this out there, if it resonates with someone, if you want to live that lifestyle or already do, leave me your email and we'll see if we can click and manifest that beautiful life.
"To leave modern society which is in the middle of a long, slow collapse"
You are an absolute gem! I'm posting a response for encouragement (I'm in a very monogamous, happy relationship). A worthy partner will love everything you have said. If you ever come to the states and want to visit with some people like minded, send me a message. I also believe modern society is in the process of a death by a thousand cuts. In our attempt to make life more comfortable and easier, we have moved away from nature and as a result, destroyed the core connection with our mother earth that humans need in order to survive. I could talk about this for hours and the literal problems it creates entire communities.
Am not a good candidate (prefer monogamous relations) and live about as south as I would want to go.
But apart from the temperature, your lifestyle could work here. A very tolerant and freedom loving culture.
Do sheep and your preferred temperature work together?
I am not a good fit for a few reasons - namely the northern climate I'm in and that I'm more comfortable with monogamous relationships - but you seem like a beautiful soul who has big plans. Kudos to you. I'd be happy to get to know you though, because I don't know many young folks who are off the beaten path. We have quite a few common interests too despite our differences! Feel free to send me a purple mooseage if you want to chat.
I have a place off the Coast of Nicaragua, small island, lot of what you are looking for but lot of what you are looking is unrealistic in some places.
Rains up to 200 inches a yr, maybe you can work solar magic, I have an electric line to my house, I get tired of not having ice.
Raise majority of my own food, trade/barter for what I don't grow. Feed my pigs 5 gallon buckets of mango & avocado during the season, banana & plantain yr round. Sheep & goats are hard on trees but I usually have a few.
3rd World Governments can be problematic.
4 minute walk to beaches. Someone young like you might enjoy it, I am currently in States enjoying 1st World problems.
I am jealous and happy for you because you are visiting Ecuador! I spent 2 months there when I was 21, and fell in love with it.
You seem like a great fit for the community we want to build. We’ve been looking for land in the Cumberland plateau region of Tennessee where we want to start a self sufficient artist’s community. Some of us are poly as well! I’d love to gush about Ecuador with you!

So i live in Tennessee currently and I’m looking to leave this house and car and everything else behind, take my dog and go!! I hunt, fish, can build and work hard. I have the means to do everything listed above and I’m looking for other like minded people to go with.
