Recording with @Georgi done! Very good job Georgi! It was a very new thing for Georgi - she is not used to being filmed and to talk about such subjects. She perfectly understands all that we talk about at TROM, and despite being the first time she had to do this, she managed it very well. We have 2 more series of interviews now ;). #tromimg

I'm really excited for TROM 2 🙃

@Tio : Today we are going to record @Georgi for TROM II :) - then make a pizza night haha. Lets see if we can record it all in one go, if not we will record the rest tomorrow. @Aaron should also arrive this week for the recordings and @Sasha is getting ready for her recording. We have around 1 month left in this apartment so we want to do the recordings faster. Unfortunately we do not have enough money to survive on our own (me and Sasha) so we are forced to move to my parents' house. It will be more difficult from now on, but what can we do!? Unless a complete miracle happens and we get a lot of financial support in the next weeks, nothing will change.

It is funny how this society makes someone like me, who dedicates so much time trying to understand it and explain it to others and create a ton of free tolls and help others, move away form this behavior and maybe get a job in order to survive. A job that is the opposite of that: probably one that scams people, sells more shit so we create more waste, ruins the internet (see SEO), and so forth. In other words, this society pushes me to go from "I want to understand the world and create nice things for others" to "I need to make money at any cost...scam others, waste, consume...don't care"...

Anyways. I will keep on pushing myself to stay sane and be able to do these projects. But of course, any financial help helps a fuck ton. #tromlive
I'm sorry to hear about your financial situation. I think all of us who understands the problem with trade faces this dilemma, the society forces us to trade in order to survive. Most people spend the better part of their life doing jobs, they don't even get enough time to spend with their loved ones. How can people understand and learn about the problems of society and try to solve them if they don't even have the time for it. Its really sad 😞
yes that's very true...

@tio
I couldn't watch the live stream cause of my bad internet. I'll probably download the video and watch it later. I'll talk to you then 😄
@Tio
Sorry to hear that....I wonder how bad your internet is...can you test it and tell me? The most reliable way is to go into the settings of your ethernet or wifi connection and see what type of connection you have. Internet speed tests are not really reliable...
I just watched the tromcast about movies. This time there were more people than the last one, I think it made it more interesting. You've talked about all the important stuff there, good points, good discussions. I'm sorry I couldn't be there for live, but we can discuss things here I guess.

BTW, watching y'all talk on TROMcast was more entertaining and educational than any movie or documentary, it made my day 😄
Oh wow you are way too kind! So the live was choppy for you, but how about streaming the video now? Does not load ok? In 1080p too?
Video streams ok after the live. But I just downloaded it cause it was 2 hours long. Also the internet speed fluctuates here, so it can be slow sometimes.

It is all about trade.

When you go into a supermarket, you take some food, you then expect to give (trade) a currency for it to the cashier. Simple. We are all used to that. This is a "trade". To unwrap this a bit, you have to trade your skills, time, energy and so forth in this society (and you do that via a job), to then get a representation of that called currency (money in our case), to then trade that for your needs and wants.

You trade your skills/time/energy.
You get a currency.
You trade that currency for food/services/stuff.

That's how our world-wide society works.

In the digital space these trades have become more shady and hidden. You go on Facebook and you get the impression that it is free. However what Facebook wants is your data/attention and at times currency (buy this, promote that). It is like going into a supermarket that has no prices and cashiers, but it knows your credit card information because when you entered the store you "agreed" with their "terms and conditions". And so they charge you little by little without even telling you.

Therefore, Facebook, Google and pretty much all websites out there are trade-based - similar to any supermarket. You have to trade to them your energy/attention/data/currency in the same way that you trade to any store out there.

If we want to create a sane society overall, we have to provide trade-free goods/services, much like Wikipedia does, or Doctors Without Borders, and many nonforprofits out there.

And that's what we do see: https://www.trade-free.org/ or https://trom.tf/ or https://www.tromsite.com/

#tromlive
Well I encourage people to discuss it here rather than fb where you are forced to have an account and trade your data/attention/currency to them :P. So tell us more about this please. I've seen many fancy looking and futuristic cities but the solution is not in how futuristic they look, it is in understanding how this trade-based society is ruining pretty much everything. So, in this city they still rely on trade right? Like you go buy stuff, maybe they collect your data, insert ads everywhere? Tell us more about and what is your connection to this project. Cheers!
Hi Tio, ok, if you wanted to understand the intention of the commune housing project, here it goes

Everyday millions of people wake up and enslaved by the system
Capitalism and exploitation will remain
TZM is advocating basic necessities of life such as water/electricity/shelter/food/etc should be made as fundamental human rights even though all human is not working, there is no one need to be sacrificed nor being exploited by fully embrace/implement today's available automation and technology.

But outdated monetary and capitalism has hindered progress of automation and commodify those basic necessities
Therefore war, poverty, deprivation, economy inefficieny, drudgery workplace for the sake of labor for income continue to exist
It is not about blaming certain human or society is bad, but economy structure is designed similar to monopoly game/musical chair game, victimize player, aka violent structure

Hence the idea of commune housing was born
Commune housing itself is a project modifying violent structure (on permanent basis) to a more civilized version
Free facility is giving members/resident a space/meeting to focus on relevant project/real world solutions
I have been following TZM for more than 10-15 years, im not gonna wait for others to take action
"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.― Richard Buckminster Fuller"
Moving from primitive (self-based capitalism) to a more civilized/advanced & sharing society
As a transition project, moving towards post scarcity model
The new human rights movement

hope i answered your question
Thanks for the answer. I am very familiar with all of these. We've been around for 10+ years and I worked with TVP directly for more than 4. There are a few points I'd like to make and questions to ask:
  • When I moved away from TVP I did so after writing this book: The Money Game and Beyond https://www.tromsite.com/books/#flipbook-df_6616/1/ - I realized one fundamental thing: when TVP/TZM and others talk about the system, capitalism, the monetary system, and so forth, they are all using a lot of words to describe the same simple thing. TRADE. We live in a trade-based society, regardless if you call it capitalism, free market, markets, communism in china or whatever. Therefore money, cryptocurrencies, data trading, attention economy, social credits and so forth, are all very well explained by this trade-based society. I then wrote a huge book explaining all of that: https://www.tromsite.com/books/#flipbook-df_6562/1/ - so, if we are to talk about what we are up against, do we agree we are up against this trade-based society?
  • After writing that second book, The Origin of Most Problems, I realized another thing: we need a problem not a solution. Self driving cars, automation, blockchain, dome houses, 3D printing, vertical farms, whatever, are not really important. What's important is to understand what the problem that we are trying to fix, is. And we describe it in detail. It is trade. Whenever you see trade (give me this to give you that), you see problems. Regardless if you talk about futuristic cities and so forth.
  • Those being said, what is your connection with the that city? Are you part of the project in any way?
  • Are the people who manage the city or parts of it, aware of this trade issue? Who are they really? Are they aware of TZM/TVP and come from that line of thinking?
Cheers!
1.) yes, trade is main source of the problem. so in my approach to creating a trade free society, im offering free facility for members, so they can either stay or use, there is no limit

2.) yes, trade free, thats why commune housing is free to use, but at the moment only for members due to limited resource

3.) i dont have any connection with forest city, i am the property owner in 1 of the small unit there, im tzm members myself, and trying to contribute what resource i have to offer, so im telling members you now can use my facility. thats is all

4.) property developer do not know i m trying to start a commune housing project there, it is only 1 unit of apartment out of 9999 they have there, they wont bother. but to create abundance and post scarcity, i wanted to collect donation in future, so those member who are not able to get involved but still wanted to, the easiest way is donation, i will keep buying another property and property, snowball the effect from there and hopefully movement will grow bigger
So basically this city is just yet another trade-based city. And what you are saying is that you have a "small unit" there. You mean an apartment? And you want to let others use your apartment trade-free (you don't ask for anything in return)? Am I getting it right?

If so, that's very nice of you, but it means it has nothing to do with that city, since that city is just like many others. It is about providing some trade-free accommodation. And of course, who can come and stay for long on Malaysia? You need a VISA and all that. Seems complicated. Plus trust of course.

We would like to do a TROMcast and discuss about this idea of building communities or a city. Is it feasible? Is it relevant? Would you like to participate?
yes i have a small apartment there, and already paid off the loan, no debt. only member and those who understand the idea behind trade-free allowed to stay, otherwise normal people is not allowed, as they wont appreciate it. but as an apartment owner or if members stay there, they must pay a maintenance fee, which is in RM (ringgit malaysia) approx RM200 plus, and you need to pay your own utilities, electricity and water bill. lets say RM100 plus per month, total about RM300 plus a month & your own food

RM300 is around $US72 dollar & your own food a month maybe RM700, more or less depend how much grocery you are spending. RM700 is around $US169. so total RM1000 (US$242) a month

for your question about VISA, this is the reason why i buy at forest city, it is situated between malaysia (johor) and singapore, it is meant for international community. forest city have resident from 33 nationalities, but at the moment majority is foreigner from china

for visa workaround, lets assume after covid is resolved, you can use tourist visa travel back and forth as many times as you want between singapore and malaysia.. lol. you can check google map it is only 16km to reach singapore.

im not sure how tromcast work, but idea of building community of city requires a lot of money, i can participate if you give more specific instruction, but keep in mind, at the end of the day, money still talks...
I see thanks for the explanation. This is more clear to me now. I've heard of many many such initiatives. From Mauritius to Cuba and in-between. There are a lot of people, especially around TVP/TZM who want to provide such free accommodation services. But I haven't heard from any of them for a while now. I do not know how practical this is, but I appreciate the initiative.

We can talk more about such approaches of creating little communities or the idea of a city in tromcast. We have a chat at https://www.tromsite.com/chat we can talk more about it there, but for sure we will make a tromcast soon about this topic. So if you can participate that'd be cool.


this is the apartment interior

before renovation this is how it looks like : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKMPwVSGrQw

ok, i will try participate if the time zone permits
I see thanks. Ok let's schedule one at an hour that best suits us all. I'll get back to you about this later on today.
it is still have some sort of relevant to the city, first of all it is high tech and with multi layered transport system, it is city of future, and also with spectacular beach and outdoor park for resident to use, this particular property developer also acknowledge the importance of conservation, they have a course teaching kids about eco-system, the whole city is using water conservation as well, also built an eco system museum, it is place for those wanted to live in some sort of sustainable city, which is already built in
I am highly skeptical about it to be honest. Any trade-based system tends to go into waste and destruction mode. Very skeptical. But we can discuss all of these in tromcast if you are interested ;).
bro.. its real

their ecology course here : https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/JSnMQfbs50ZHceQlRpfmBQ

"..Forest City has built 4 sewage treatment plants with a total capacity of approximately 170,400 P.E. After an advanced ecological sewage treatment system and a wetland treatment, the effluent water quality is able to meet CLASS II B standard, which is higher than the ordinary discharge standard in Malaysia. The effluent will then be used for irrigation of roof gardens, vertical greenery, outdoor landscapes, as well as public toilet flushing, etc. Currently, most of the water for irrigation in Forest City comes from reclaimed water. In the future, desalination will also be implemented to enhance the efficiency of water resources utilization...”

I did not say it is not real. I doubt it is going to be used for more than making more money out of it. You have to trade for this "amazing" technology. See the Masdar city. is not technology that we need, is a new system that's not based on trade. You know what I mean?
yes agreed, as long as trade exist, we have to continue perpetuate the idea of infinite growth, which at the end means still not sustainable
Looking more into it....they want to grow an economy there, they look for business opportunities, they want tourism....how is this different from Barcelona? Or any other city in that regards?
at the moment, it is normal capitalism city. the rest of the detail already described previously
Free accommodation, meals, health insurance....for people working there... https://www.forestcitycgpv.com/career - I mean I get free healthcare in Spain and I don't work in Spain or ever did + pay 0 taxes. I don't get it, what this city has to do with moving away from this trade-based society?

This week we will make a TROMcast about MOVIES.

Lets talk about movies. Are they really dumb nowadays? Are they just ads? Are they relevant in any way? Are they just made so that companies make profits?

But also, what are some good movies out there? How could movies look in a saner future? What about educational movies?

Lets chat about that ;)

We invite anyone to participate. Please use this poll to tell us what day/hour suits you best https://poll.trom.tf/studs.php?poll=nhJOmGhqfBjBlnfB
