What stage is the project at right now?
The manager Dan, is still stuck waiting for new paperwork that he lost on the last land when a landslide happened and a building collapsed. Things take time in Mexico, one hour can turn into 4 weeks, and 4 weeks can then turn into then 3 months! Once Dan is able to, he will head towards San cristobal stopping to meet people in Oaxaca along the way. There are others on the way too and already members starting to settle in san cristobal and they say the vibe is amazing!
In Morelia where the project sprung from last time, there was no vibe at all!
Is it Communal Based?
No – it is not any type of community. It is starting as a land development company providing a camping resort. Private plot ownership focusing on the individual and not any kind of group. There will be shared buildings in the middle of the land which is the center of Skogen and has the shared spaces for its members to use. Of course its only natural a community to form without any pressure or intentions.
People that choose not to participate so much in community are very welcome to live at Skogen.
Will there be a communal garden built in the Center?
No. If for instance a group of members want to make a communal garden, then it would be made on one of their purchased private plots. There’s nothing stopping someone to use their plot(s) as a communal place if they want to – diversity is good.
Why are you not having a communal garden? Dan @movingman has lived in many places that have communal gardens. They are very nice but after a year or two, the volunteers dwindle away and then there’s one or two left looking after a huge garden. Eventually those one or two get bored of the work and leave or stop doing the garden, and then there’s a big unused part of the land growing wild that nobody owns.
Another reason is that it attracts people (Socialists) who like to get free things from others whilst they sit on their savings and pretend to be poor. Anyone who uses the new speak marxist word Woke, or cares about the new world gender agenda and white guilt, may aswell close the window right now and forget about living here.
I am not in Mexico yet, how is the plot allocation happening, can you explain?
Your still not in Mexico! Cutting a bit short you could say! Once you have paid you will have secured your plot, and are welcome to go camp on the land once is located and it is fully purchased. Plot alloction is a first pay first choose scheme. Once land is found and resident zones located, people will get to choose what plot they want from the project map in the order from the paid list.
We are a group looking to buy plots, can we have a Representative Member or do we all need to become members?
Anyone wishing to visit or live at Skogen will need to be a level one member.
What is the meaning in the name for the Project? ..it is called Skogen Bosque. Literally translated it means Skogen (Scandinavian) “The Forest” and Bosque (Spanish) “Forest”. You know, The Forest Forest!
I am not so financially safe and worried about how I would survive in Mexico. How would I be able to earn money at the project?
We shall have our own crypto currency which can be traded back into fiat or other cryptos on a trading site or Dex. This currency will produce daily more coins and people can be paid in this! It will be a DPOS which means there will be interests for holding the coin. Game changer because anyone can join the project with skills and motivation, and start a new life there form nothing.
Before all of this from the start, plot owners are normally asking for labourers and skilled workers. People can become a member and offer services to get work that way. Try to avoid doing work for food and a place to sleep, earn your money so you can be independant, this is an anarcho capitalist project!
I am already in Mexico, can I come and visit you?
Yes, please do! It has been really good to meet people in person and for them to ask me face to face questions that they have, get to know each other and make sure everyone’s on the same page. Many people have met Dan by now and if the project is what they are looking for then they stay in touch online!
Will background checks be made on Members?
You bet. We are working out how to do this now, and membership prices will change to cover the costs. Skogen Bosque will be a gated community of sound people for the future well being of everyone. Employees and Ex-employees of Authorities (police forces and the likes) are strictly not allowed. We accept ex military but do not agree to Wars. This doesn’t mean that if you have a family member who worked in the government section you cannot be a member, it just means that we cannot have members who are at present, or have previously worked in the police forces and such.
If someone has a serious criminal record then they too will not be accepted into the membership – but all victimless crimes are not considered crimes at Skogen Bosque.
What is a victimless crime?
If you have a criminal record of a said crime that had no other party as a victim involved, then this is a victimless crime. Drug charges, speeding tickets, possession of an illegal fire arm, and all the others that governments have in place. We were all young and rebellious at one point and an account of theft 20 years ago are not considered a worry to the project.
What type of housing would be suitable at Skogen?
People are invited to build homes such as Straw bale round houses, Yurts and Tipis, Earth ships, Vehicles, Homes made inside of greenhouses, Tree houses, Barrel houses.. If you would like, let your imagination fly.. I’ve even seen people living in a caravan that had been hoisted 30 ft up into trees, suspended with ropes through the windows and a hole in the floor to enter!
There’s no building regulations at Skogen for plot owners.
I am not a builder, but want to buy a plot or be a founding investor and then I want a house built. What will the options be at Skogen Bosque? There are options. One is to find a builder from the telgram group (there will more than likely be a few between us) and employ them. Skogen Bosque plans to also offer options to buy homes from 3rd party companies.
What things are banned from Skogen that are not in the rules?
5G enabled devices, Police, Hard drugs (in shared spaces), Injected people, Journalists, Government apps, Being naked in shared spaces, Cult members, dogs that constantly bark at nothing.
Will it be Family and Pet Friendly? Yes most definitely, Dan the manager has 3 dogs! There will be a kids playground in the city center and various play areas dotted around too. Also a building dedicated for children to use. People who offer education services can rent it to offer education services. Pets are allowed but untrained dogs must be controlled on a rope whilst it is not on your own private land. Horses and the keeping of live stock are encouraged at Skogen. There will be cheaper sloped land more suited for animals on offer in the future to rent or buy.
You mentioned about a Cryptocurrency?
Yes, we will have our own crypto currency and blockchain. We will also have a network which means the blockchain can still run without the internet. We can make a DPOS coin that produces coins everyday automatically and this crypto can be used as wages for people. We can have our own financial ecosystem, our own blockchain ID cards and currency, plots shall be given an NFT as a deed. It’s possible later on to make it so the plot sales can only be paid with the digital token we have thus boosting the value of the token and avoiding government financial systems.
Will there be 5G?
No chance. We have recently decided that there will be one spot at the market place where there will be wifi, and then from there we run cables! EMFs wether you feel them or not, is how very soon the scifi become reality. It will be nice to have to walk some time to go use the internet again, dont forget, convinience is what leads to slavery.
How will the center be powered if its offgrid?
Solar mainly. The main kitchen will use rocket stoves and wood ovens – yes, open fires to cook on. I’m sure a gas oven or 2 will appear though and Bio Gas will be sold!
Wind power can be also used, along with any other mad experimental ideas to create free electric (huge earth battery’s?!)
What about Cartels?
The project will have high walls and gated entrances to get in. Its planned to be not only for Cartels but also in preperation for a distopian future. A lot of money will get spent on security. Everyone has the right to bear arms, (not where alcohol is being served and consumed) and Plot owners are responsible for protecting their property. There can be also jobs provided for a security team in the future.
I dont want to live near people, will there be secluded spots available?
Its already been thought of to have secluded places of with not many plots and far enough from the main areas. Dont worry, your not the only one!
Skogen Bosque is soon to be a Mexican land development company.
People are encouraged to use initiative and to create trades if they choose to. For example I might have 20 chickens so I start selling eggs, baking bread and selling things I grew by telling everyone, making posters up as well and going from there.
There will be a marketplace where people can meet up, sell produce from a stand on market day once a week. There will be some kind of system using our own currency to rent stands for cheap at the market for example or people can even buy a market stand, the options are endless. In the market area skogen will sell commercial plots to people interested.
There will also be the one’s who don’t need to do anything and can consume the other peoples goods creating an economy which is normal.
What about deeds to the plots? Each plot will be having its own NFT, stored in your wallet on blockchain. The NFT will contain all the details as would a paper land deed.
