In those days we saved the world, the older ones were set in their ways, yet the youth were ready for something new. We wanted a world with no money, a free world where we had the best institutions run by us because we love to help each other. The transition needed a new way to ease that in; it was always going to need to blend in, to flow, evolution not revolution. So the young asked for a new social contract. They would do their best with whatever talents they had, work within society to bring the maximum benefit to all within a volunteer agency that welcomed and enhanced their creative input. In exchange they had a lovely home for life, guaranteed good food, all energy and health needs met, total cradle to grave care, and a little money too while capitalism was phased out, albeit over a few decades. Over time, more older folks asked for it too, people of every profession. It was popular. We got a whole new way of living, more joy than we ever expected to have, healthy families, enough time to enjoy being parents. It was a great thing. Services were services, none of the power-rubbish of the past."

"After the new social contract life became a lot more fun. We had inter-volunteer-village cooking contests, bungee jumping contests, music contests and dance-offs. We worked for joy and played every day, it was awesome. We even made our own TV shows, locals becoming local celebrities. We got a feeling of "tribe" going, our own vibe and culture. Folks were always welcome to visit, but we never told them our recipes, our magic, that was ours."
