Ask AI How To Create A New Global Society Based On Permaculture and Mutual Aid

Explanation

I have been trying to figure out a good way to get the AI to write detailed and structured long-form text. I think I have cracked the code and this topic provides a perfect context for showing the process. The parts in bold below are the prompts. I add a prompt to the end of each response in order to get the AI to first create an outline and then elaborate on each of the points. Then I just remove the outline, and we have our longform text!

We are arguing for the creation of a new global society of small groups living together in a vast network of permaculture and mutual aid. These communities fulfil the fundamentals of Marxist thought which have never been embodied by any nation state that has yet existed. Namely, the abolition of rent and wage slavery, the abolition of class hierarchies, and the abolition of the state itself. Many things will have to fundamentally change about the modern world in order to create such a society in the future. In terms of things we can start doing today as individuals an organizations, the first step is to start creating the infrastructure for this new society. This includes creating alternative economic institutions such as cooperatives and alternative currencies, and creating alternative political institutions such as participatory democracy. It also includes creating the physical infrastructure for these communities, such as ecovillages and urban gardens. Finally, it includes educating people about these issues and spreading the word about the possibility of a different way of living.

At the most basic level, the infrastructure breaks down into a simple list of discrete categories which all communities and individuals must address, either together or separately, in order to survive and thrive in a sustainable off-grid way and contribute meaningfully to the global network of permaculture and mutual aid.

1. Food
2. Water
3. Energy
4. Shelter
5. Waste
6. Education
7. Healthcare
8. Transportation
9. Communications

Let’s talk a little bit about each of these categories and how we have to look at them in order to fulfil the expectations we have laid out above.

1. Food: In order to create a food system that is sustainable and just, we need to move away from the current system of industrial agriculture and towards a system of permaculture. This means diversifying our food sources and making use of local resources as much as possible. It also means shifting away from a monoculture approach to agriculture and towards a more diversified approach that takes into account the needs of the ecosystem.

2. Water: In order to create a water system that is sustainable and just, we need to move away from the current system of privatized water and towards a system of community-managed water. This means ensuring that everyone has access to clean water and that the resources are managed in a way that is equitable and protects the environment.

3. Energy: In order to create an energy system that is sustainable and just, we need to move away from the current system of fossil fuels and towards a system of renewable energy. This means investing in renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and geothermal. It also means using energy more efficiently and reducing our reliance on energy-intensive technologies.

4. Shelter: In order to create a shelter system that is sustainable and just, we need to move away from the current system of privatized housing and towards a system of community-managed housing. This means ensuring that everyone has access to affordable housing and that the resources are managed in a way that is equitable and protects the environment.

5. Waste: In order to create a waste system that is sustainable and just, we need to move away from the current system of waste management and towards a system of waste reduction. This means reducing our reliance on disposable products and increasing our recycling and composting. It also means investing in technologies that can help us reduce our waste footprint.

6. Education: In order to create an education system that is sustainable and just, we need to move away from the current system of privatized education and towards a system of community-managed education. This means ensuring that everyone has access to affordable education and that the resources are managed in a way that is equitable and protects the environment.

7. Healthcare: In order to create a healthcare system that is sustainable and just, we need to move away from the current system of privatized healthcare and towards a system of community-managed healthcare. This means ensuring that everyone has access to affordable healthcare and that the resources are managed in a way that is equitable and protects the environment.

8. Transportation: In order to create a transportation system that is sustainable and just, we need to move away from the current system of privatized transportation and towards a system of community-managed transportation. This means ensuring that everyone has access to affordable transportation and that the resources are managed in a way that is equitable and protects the environment.

9. Communications: In order to create a communications system that is sustainable and just, we need to move away from the current system of privatized communications and towards a system of community-managed communications. This means ensuring that everyone has access to affordable communications and that the resources are managed in a way that is equitable and protects the environment.

In terms of first steps for people who are interested in being a part of the early stages of this new society, there are a few key things to keep in mind while planning your own transition towards this new society.

1. diversify your income sources
2. create a support network of like-minded people
3. develop a plan for living sustainably off the grid
4. educate yourself and others about these issues
5. take action to create the infrastructure for this new society

Let’s talk a little bit about each of these categories and how we have to look at them in order to fulfil the expectations we have laid out above.

1. Diversify your income sources: In order to be financially secure in the new society, it is important to have multiple sources of income. This could include a mix of traditional and alternative sources of income. Traditional sources of income could include things like a job, investments, or government benefits. Alternative sources of income could include things like bartering, mutual aid, or creating your own business.

2. Create a support network of like-minded people: In order to thrive in the new society, it is important to have a supportive network of people who share your values and goals. This network can provide emotional support, practical advice, and help with day-to-day tasks.

3. Develop a plan for living sustainably off the grid: In order to live sustainably in the new society, it is important to have a plan for how you will meet your needs without relying on fossil fuels or other unsustainable resources. This could include things like growing your own food, using renewable energy sources, or living in an ecovillage.

4. Educate yourself and others about these issues: In order to create the new society, it is important to educate yourself and others about the issues we face and the solutions we need. This education can take many forms, including books, websites, videos, workshops, and classes.

5. Take action to create the infrastructure for this new society: In order to create the new society, it is important to take action to create the infrastructure we need. This infrastructure includes things like alternative economic institutions, alternative political institutions, and alternative physical infrastructure.

Analysis

It did a really great job writing about this topic, and as an expert on this topic who has sent years doing field research and developing my own version of this very list, I think it came up with a great list.
