We should all read Gordon Quinn: Return to the Real and start building a society based on creating decentralized artificial communities



We should all read Gordon Quinn: Return to the Real, which is a comprehensive study on how to minimize impact done on the environment by using internet based tools, by creating virtual schematics, that speak of how far does someone live from the workplace he works at, how to decentralize stuffs distribution, how to become more efficient and conscient with the internet usage, how to start to work less (as this is the only solution), and how to submit to ONE set of ideas only even though they are not yet perfect as perfection comes to in the course of the physical work.

Category of the action

Changing public perceptions on climate change

What actions do you propose?

Submitting to ONE ONLY SET of IDEAS (I propose Gordon Quinn: Return to the Real), to create virtual platforms in all sectors to minimize work included, to stop working for the companies that are away from this goal, to start proposing the ideas explained in the book to the others, to live near to the workplace, to learn how to improve your own self instead of buying stuff. If everything should be explained in one sentence it would be WORK LESS, HAVE LESS, LIVE MORE. Internet which already makes information flowing freely should be SET UP FRONT as THE MAIN TOOL with WHICH TO HANDLE POWER DISTRIBUTION, SHARE ART AND KNOWLEDGE. THINK POSITIVE and SHARE LOVE.

Who will take these actions?


Where will these actions be taken?


How much will emissions be reduced or sequestered vs. business as usual levels?

80 % at least

What are other key benefits?

People will have more spare constructive time to take care of themselves and others.

What are the proposal’s costs?

To create all these VIRTUAL PLATFORMS I imagine it would take less than 50 programmers and less than 100.000 dollars.

Time line

It can all happen within less than five years. There is One phase only.
