Title: Discordian Cult I mean Commune
Post by: Cramulus on August 19, 2009, 07:09:30 pm
I was talking with everybody, and we seem like we're on the same page.

So by combining our funds, we'll all buy a plot of land somewhere. (perhaps Oregon) Then we'll all move there and begin our Discordian Commune.

We each need to bring something to the table to bring in income. Then we can live bourgeois lives like big pimpin Discordians.

I guess a number of us could spend our time putting together books and stuff. Then we could try to sell them.


I'm positive someone would begin growing drugs, that would def. bring in some cash.


We could offer space in the commune as a mystic retreat of some sort, then dose our guests with acid and make them think they've joined an alien illuminati cult.

We all teach each other everything we know about the following:

Plumbing
Electricity
Carpentry
Landscaping
Masonry


We can hire ourselves out as a team of handyspags as well as being able to do all of this work for ourselves, thus saving the commune money.

This is a lot like the fantasy I was having with that church for sale in my neighborhood last year.

Also, my dad has 12.5 acres of prime farmland in Gervais, just sitting there. It's going into trust when he dies, for any of us kids to use. I say we get the jump on the rest of them, and rebuild the farmhouse into a commune! I still haven't looked into getting tax-exempt status as a church, but I'm pretty sure there are enough of us that we could pull it off.

I am skilled at:

Beadmaking
Marketing and promotion
Gardening
Small-animal husbandry
Charismatic recruitment
Sewing
Cooking
Shooting guns
Preserving food
Making random stuff

I could teach everyone to make beads, and we could dominate the glass-bead economy!

I can do planning, scheming and delegating. Also, teaching. And brewing booze. And I can manage our online mass mailing donation scam something.

However, beyond that, I kind of wonder what is the point of being Discordian if you bubble yourself off from society and go live in a commune?

First, we are *bound* to get in much worse flamefests and shit than on this forum, the community will explode or split within a month. For that is the blessing and the curse of Our Lady of Strife.

Plus, it's much better and useful to battle grayface and Machine from within its own ranks like a cancer than as an outside entity like a single mosquito.

The point (to me) is threefold:

-as a group sharing a physical location, we could pull off some really cool stuff. Like throwing parties, or mass pranks, or whatever.
-I'm fucking sick of society! I'm starting to think that I'd rather live on a farm, working for people that I like, than in a city, working for business jerks.
-When Daruko shows up, and we hmmm.... murder him.... it's better (legally) if we all share the responsibility

IRL we'll probably all hate each other

also, this is a problem for any starting cult:
too many cult leaders, not enough cultists

Okay okay okay


how about a network of miniature cultmmunes

there'll be a few scattered around the country, maybe even a few in Canada

each one will be disguised as a plain vanilla white people-filled suburban cul-de-sac in a relatively out-of-the-way locale. The really weird shit will be hidden behind trees or underground

this way, there's a place to go to and stay even if IRL flamefests make it undesirable to continue living in one particular cultmmune.

I think as an actual commune-ity we will either bash eachother's heads in, or turn into an ingrown-toenail type of smelly angry pissy sour grumpy wrinkly discordi hippie hipsters that also bash eachother's heads in.

Who are we gonna throw parties for? Ourselves? Won't that get old?

Somehow I see the throwing parties and mass pranks working much better if we would be a semi-co-localized group still living in society of people that are not on eachother's lip IRL every day and have a life outside of the community.

I mean, a weekly or bi-weekly meeting, like a club, with people living slightly closer together, exchanging posters and ideas, sharing stories about postering, handing out business cards and pranks, occasionally throwing the party or pulling off a larger mindfuck would seem much more productive.

-I'm fucking sick of society! I'm starting to think that I'd rather live on a farm, working for people that I like, than in a city, working for business jerks.

I bet you'd hate this much, much more. And it would make you real sick, really quick.

Also, I happen to like society :) Maybe you could, um, see your current exploits and ideas for making money all sort of revolve around online business right? Selling books shirts and funny ideas. You can do that from anywhere where you got an internet connection. So go somewhere cheaper to live, simple! Except .. Chloe probably has some business in the city, no? See that's why I dont call it BIP, or Shrapnel or Network, but Tangled-up Mess.

There's this word in Dutch "ploeteren", which means something like "to drag on", "to toil" or "to barely come by" or "to just manage to keep your head above the water" and stuff like that. I have a book, I haven't actually read it but the title is "ontploeteren", which is the undoing of that verb. Like unraveling the Tangled Up Mess. "to untoil" doesnt really have the same ring.

That's what you need to do though. Untangle that shit. You can't really take a step to solve the one, because the other thing prevents you to, which you cannot solve because that other thing cannot something with the thing thing, you dig? I (still) dont know enough about your situation to tell you what to do though, but the trick is to snap the proper chewing gum strings with surgical precision for maximum effect while strengthening others and make sacrifices, but only the right ones that will get you to your goal. Which you need to pinpoint. And keep in mind. And make sure that goal is so rock-solid and uncompromising that the world shapes around it. Or something. This is extremely vague, apologies, hit me on AIM if you wanna talk about it, I don't mind listening.

Yes!

So, Cram brings up a good point, which is that Discordia is comprised of cult leaders, not cult followers. However, I suspect that given enough space and independence, we would all get along a lot better than might be suspected. I think everyone should move to Oregon and we can buy an old convent, and run it as the first ever Discordian monastery/retreat/art center. We can make money by using the grounds for weddings and events, growing wine grapes, teaching classes, and charging minimal rent to occupants, which need not be us. Some of us could live there if we wanted to, and best of all, it would be a tax shelter.

I bet I could find one for less than $800k. Split sixteen ways, that's only $50k each, and I know two people off the top of my head who would be into this.

What do you say?

Yeah, because NOBODY here is the kind of person who will flip the fuck out when they don't get their way. Even less when the vast majority doesn't get its way because of some jackass. Right.

I would totally spend a couple years in this place if it works btw. I don't really have practical skills, but I can maintain at least my own computer (others here are way ahead of me on networks administration) and given an Internet connection I can make money translating...

Actually, the one practical skill I could really contribute is running (chairing, moderating, Roberts' Rules style) democratic meetings, if we do those to avoid conflict. I have experience at it and I'm told I'm pretty good at it. Also other bureaucratic shit really, but I can kinda see how that kind of stuff won't really work for many of us.

I know you meant this humorously, but I have to strongly urge against democratic voting in the commune, except for minor disputes and petty squabbles. Allowing majority rule would turn a Discordian Autonomous Zone into a U.S. microcosm.

Thinking too small, again.  First off, we want to become a cult, without all the associated ATF shoot-outs and mass suicides, which is just lame.

Now we're talking about invading communes instead of micro-countries.  Tuvalu has a population of 12,000, and so long as all relevant interested parties got what they wanted (ie banks, organised crime, selling the .tv domain and letting Japan buy your whaling vote) I doubt anyone would give a shit.

And it is a sovereign nation, with all the rights that entails.  Ie; diplomatic immunity.

Oh, and Fiji and Samoa are nearby.  AKA Oceanic coup central.

i would suggest joining a pre-existing commune, then getting everyone really drunk and stoned and once they are passed out ( if some stay standing MAKE THEM PASS OUT ) draw a picture of the starbucks symbol inside-out on their nipples.
then you convince them that theyve all been brainwashed by eviil aliens and have also been infected with highly contagious cancer zombie syndrome,

then giving you an excuse to convince them all to jump down a well

I know enough chemistry and computers to assist those more talented.  Also reasonably skilled at carpentry, but I learned woodworking at a stage crew for a theatre company - I can make things that look like comfortable pieces of furniture from the front row if your main attention is on the singing dancing people.  Also, good at digging trenches - useful for irrigation systems?

Other than that my main skills are customer service (you'd be surprised how much holding your their customers in contempt helps,) data entry... and working with young children.  I can cook bread given a bread machine.

I wouldn't want to join a commune full-time, but it would be an interesting thing to do while college is out for the summer.  Wouldn't have any money, though.

I think that if the commune should become a Micronation, then build a wall around the outside and perpetuate myths of hyperdrugs and ultrasex to raise intreague.

Hmmm. My sister was lured into the lovely little Zendik Farm cult when she was barely 17 years old. Some guys from the farm met her at a concert in Dallas and pursuaded her to leave with them THAT NIGHT, claiming she didn't need to tell our parents, she could call them later once they got to the farm (about five hours away from us). Through some quick detective work, we found out she'd gone to this place and found a phone number from someone else who'd been approached that night. By the time we called her, they'd already brainwashed her into thinking THEY were her family and life would be so pleasant there on their little "farm" where some old fart named Wulf sat around having sex with underage girls while everyone else slave-labored outside or in the kitchen. It's a freakin' commune! Why do you think they keep moving?!

earlier in the thread a seemingly intellegent enough sincere male wrote a number of emails with no response. then a 16 year old girl wrote one and got a very enthusiastic "come on out, this is the place for you" response within an hour. although part of the journey to spiritual freedom is to remove our attachments to possesions, the demand of all of them when you join, and the apparently random booting out of people. the slave labor and oriental despotism in the leadership of this cultmune, the intimidating coercive approach to get underage trouble girls to submit to sex with more established members of the cult.

we should have badge look into it, if i remember correctly it was an entire subdivision with dozens of large houses a school/community buildings of some sort, a park with a play ground for kids etc it looked like a cool setup and it had a typical American neighbourhood look to it not the weird cult look you would expect it to have

Also:  Have we considered old factory space for this commune thing?  It'd be a toss up as far as start up cost whether it would be more / less than some old country joint, and being in a city / industrial area would mess with self - sufficiency.  "Artist's collectives" get us all kinds of slack and subsidized rent from cities that want to artifically inflate their culture penis.  (Usually in one of the not - so good areas of town.)  From there we just need to show product, put on stuff, and paint everything with shitty murals.  Bitching about low carbon footprint, greenhouse, and doing as much as possible out of "Make" or "Instructables" couldn't hurt either.

Does this mean that we'd get tax cuts/subsidies for postergasm?

actually if its a big enough space with some outdoors, we could be partially self sufficient as growing food in urban areas is acheiveable, just takes a bit more planning. there are ways to take a 12ft square and make it produce food all year round pretty much., get enough space for about 10 of those, or planters and stuff, well its feasable to be able to grow some food.

And some of us would really benefit from the studio space, however in urban areas with all this cool stuff going on we would need plenty of security.

I like the concept of an urban warehouse/factory type space. "Artist communes" or whatever can generally get tax sheltering and all kinds of neat things.

Food would be an issue--we could do a combination of food and any number of part-time employment set-ups to help fund things. For example, I could work part time at a grocery store, so as to bring in some money, but then also be the designated grocery purchaser so that my discount would make things that we couldn't produce on our own more affordable (milk, flour, etc). Someone else might work at Home Depot or some such. By working something like 20 hours per week, we can get some income, a discount to take advantage of, and, depending on the place, health benefits (I like health care).

Then again, I just happen to like urban living.

Urban would have the advantages of easier access to stuff, services, etc., which could make up for the loss of a open land / wooded buffer zone between the Discordian folks and anyone else who may care.  (Which an old factory building could provide too.)
The extra work is also the correct idea, it would help keep income and health care around, beyond the employee discount idea.

Setting up inside unused warehouses and factories also opens the possibility of repeating the same pattern in many major cities where manufacturing jobs have been shipped overseas (read: a lot of them).

Essentially, Discordians could take over the Rust Belt regions of multiple states.

OMG. Could you imagine having a giant hall type thing, like a big central room, where people could basically host events? Like wedding receptions, or big corporate meetings or whatever. We'd provide food (everything is better with cupcakes and boozecookies), the decor would be whatever weird shit we're churning out at the time... We could totally market it as some sort of hippy dippy thing.

Okay, there has GOT to be a struggling urban area with old mills/warehouses/factories/whatever that we could obtain that would be interested in "a vibrant up-and-coming artist collective"...

Cainad and myself have both been on hand for a fair bit of contracting / contructions work, so we could suss most of it out.  

The mental image I'm getting from this, (mashed up with my own prexisting ideas) would basically be part of the building paritioned off into rooms with sheetrock, plywood, and insulation for living / cooking / bathrooms.  This would be the only part we both to run liveable heat, electricity, or plumbing to, which would keep costs down.  Even if the roof of the place leaks to all hell, we could still roof, gutter, and waterproof inside as needed.  

If we found a place with a corrugated metal roof, we can patch and replace sections as needed to get it solid.  While we could ALMOST do the same with a gravel + asphalt roof, at some point they shit the bed and you need to rip out the whole works.  (It's a BITCH, and expensive.)

The rest of the space could be converted and equipped as needed for whatever crafts, performance areas, or storage we need, as needed.  (Stage, studios, forge, etc.)

If we're in Detroit, having Cain for extra paranoia and cross training us in human dissasembly would be a good idea.  
Scroungers would def. be key too.  The re - used / re - purposed / re - cycled vibe would be to our advantage.  (Even if we're secretly eating McDonalds and deep frying whoel pigs in the back.)

Separating living space and public space might prove tricksy...

anyone here with any construction skills? Or will we just have tents indoors?

Also I have mad scrounging and trashpicking skills.

I've done construction at this level, non support structure walls.  Pretty simple, frame, sheetrock, smooth and paint.  The one tricksy part is doing the electrical work and not having a building inspector shut the place down later on.  Something that should be looked at is either home renovation rules (IE, is it possible to do it for yourself without a license) and the possibility of getting people on track for licensed electrical/plumbing/general contracting for a given possible area.

Also what cities have mixed zoning where we could live in a factory without having the city harass us more than usual?

lentils aren't so bad in stews with some chicken.

And the reson most communes are mostly veggie/vegan? Its fucking cheap to live on. £10 per head for three weeks.

Altho keeping chickens for eggs and the occasional bird for the table is a smart move.

Also I am used to cooking food for shit loads of people and can cook the range from omnivore to stinking vegan, and am not adverse to finding solutions to big differences in diet.

from personal experience if you can get chickens to work youll get alot of eggs and with every batch of chicks you get you'll get 50% cockerels, so plenty of tasty chicken and after each batch of chicks ( unless you eat them all ) youll have to change the cockerel so more meat!

Detroit used to have a program where property that had been abandoned as urban blight would be sold for just about nothing so that it could be back on the city tax rolls.

I remember seeing an old brewery building for sale for an almost inconceivably low price, like under 20 grand.

or, put another way, a grand each from 20 of us.

Cause I'm now thinking Commune Timeshare. Advertise the Real DiscordianTM experience (you know: free love, cheech and chong movie marathons, elvis look-a-like competitions, rant workshops, etc). How hard is it to out-sex Scientology? I'm sure you could get more people interested in securing their place than who would actually show up.

For example, if in any year, you assume 10% turnout for any 5-day slot, that's only about 25-30 guests at a time. If you up the investment to $5, then you're down to a more manageable 5-6 guests. Plus on top of that you have a yearly "maintenance fee", charge "guest fees" for bringing along recruits friends, invest all that into new infrastructure and it's the perfect scam business plan.

Each of the satellite communes could pretend to be the Real Discordian Commune, but the real discordian commune would be the one which had priority access to the 'evaluation questionnaire' results, photos, and thus no irritating unwanted 'guests'. Just like any cult - people could schmooze their way to the top if they're 'interesting' enough.

Bottom line is - we need cultists to balance out the cult-leaders, but the best cultists are those who can go back to their boring 9-5 after their annual pilgrimage and spread the word in the real world.

For that matter, we could make it an artists retreat, and charge something like $600 for two weeks of workshops and instruction.

I command $350 a head for a two-day class, so $600 for two weeks, including room and board, is a bargain. I'm sure we have some other artists in our midst who would be able to teach workshops in their mediums.

If I could get Space Cowboy on board, he could teach ceramics.

For that matter, we could make it an artists retreat, and charge something like $600 for two weeks of workshops and instruction.

I command $350 a head for a two-day class, so $600 for two weeks, including room and board, is a bargain. I'm sure we have some other artists in our midst who would be able to teach workshops in their mediums.

If I could get Space Cowboy on board, he could teach ceramics.
Silversmithing here.

Skills I bring to the table:

Mechanical (any, but don't do cars).
Hate.
Rage.
Random violence when forced to deal with primates.

Oh, yes.  Door-to-door salesmen and telemarketers are an untapped source of humor.
