Speaking of innovative and imaginative designs, what we are doing here is so large; creating societies, cultures, and civilizations, we need to start thinking creatively, to come up with new ways of building a society. We are going to be creating many new societies, and what we are doing will reshape the world’s societies that exist today. Since Resolutionism declares that housing is a basic human right, we are going to have to build efficient and affordable housing for millions of people, requiring that we build more towns and cities around the world. Remember that we are going to house the homeless, as we talked about earlier, and we are giving hundreds of millions of people jobs and homes. We will literally have to manufacture these homes and jobs.
I remember that when I was a little, I tried to come up with an idea to house the homeless. During that time, there were thousands of homeless people living in Winnipeg and other cities in Canada, and my plan was to build a small city or large town on my parents property. My parents own a small ¼ section of land, and I thought that we could just build a city there, where all the homeless people could live and work. Of course, that couldn’t happen because nobody could afford to build an entire city. But…of course, the United Earth could afford it. This new system is there just for those reasons: so that we can solve those problems that we could not previously “afford” to solve.
We can build residential sectors where the people will live, commercial sectors for businesses to move in, and industrial sectors so that the people of that city can work. In fact, just building the city would create thousands of jobs. Businesses will pop up all over the place, as people begin moving into the town. The city is going to need police and fire protection, creating security for the people. The city is going to need a hospital, and doctor’s offices, so that the people of that community can be healthy, where people can receive medical, surgical, psychiatric, and nursing care. We’ll build schools so that both children and adults can learn to better themselves, and improve the quality of their lives. We’ll build water refinement plants so that we can ensure safe, clean water is being supplied to the city. We’ll build recreational facilities, day care centers, and free public transportation systems, so that the people of the city are well looked after.
The UE could easily afford to build thousands of these small cities all over the world. Despite what you might have heard, there’s still tonnes of land left. This would help save the world on so many levels. Imagine cities like this popping up in Africa, where so many starving people have no homes. We can build those people the homes they need, and we can offer them a life to live.
To help us create these cities, we must create a new element, regarding the contribution of the growth of this system. I’m talking about the method in which we build our homes, where we build them, and what we use to build them. For much of the beginning of human history we lived in caves to shelter us from the environment, and protect us from predators. Groups of nomadic peoples over 15,000 years ago, hunted wooly mammoths, ate the meat, and made shelters from the skin and bones.
The very first houses were built in the Middle East around 11,000 years ago, and were very small. These people would build thatched huts with walls of grass, reeds, and sun-dried mud. These can still be seen in some parts around the world, such as the beautiful village of Mali in Africa. They are cheap to build and cool to live in. Tall reeds grow around Lake Titicaca, in Peru, South America, so the people who live there use these reeds to build their homes. Traditionally, the Inuit peoples of Northern Canada lived in igloos made out of blocks of snow. We eventually learned to build much stronger structures, with thick walls and a roof to protect us from the environment. In time we learned to build durable houses, and other large buildings.
All over the world, people make use of whatever materials they can find or produce, to make their homes. Mud, stone, slate, boulders, bricks, branches, reeds, steel girders, sheets of iron, concrete, glass, timber, straw, turf, ice, bamboo, animal hides, cardboard boxes…you name it. It took us thousands of years to come up with the idea for solid bricks, which was, in my opinion, one of the most remarkable achievements in the history of humanity. Bricks are mostly rectangular blocks of clay, or any similar material, that is baked until it is hard and is used for building walls, houses, and other large permanent structures. They are very strong, and they help regulate temperature, to keep heat inside the home during the winter, and keep it dark and cool in the summer. It’s time to start thinking creatively, to think up the new brick.
We need to be able to build homes and structures all over the world, using a new construction medium, that is cheap, strong, relatively light, can help regulate temperatures, and is not hazardous to us or to the environment. It has to be able to withstand Earth’s ranging temperatures and weather patterns, such as the winds, water, snow, ice, and intense heat. It has to be something strong, so that it can protect people from harm. It has to be something light, so that it can be easily transported, and used all over the world. Not only our world, but eventually we should be able to begin colonization of the moon, or Mars, etc., and using this technology, we should be able to create temporary and permanent shelters, and even cities, on other planets.
