From Each According To Ability, To Each According To Need (Karl Marx in his 1875 Critique of the Gotha Program)
J and I believe fervently in a more equal society. A society where needs are met regardless of ethnic origins, intelligence or gender; a society where money counts for nothing because it is obsolete; a society where each of us works at what we do best or most enjoy and in return our community meets our needs to the best of its ability.
Members would have a wide range of skills that they bring to the benefit of all – there would be organic gardeners, a carpenter, pest control operatives, a tinsmith, acrobats, weavers, comedians, an organic compost maker, house builders, interior designers, you name it! Everyone contributes something and in return they have the security of a roof over their heads, a constant supply of interesting and nourishing meals and the knowledge that they are loved for who they are and not for the pounds (or lack thereof) in their pockets!
Does that sound Utopian to you? Unattainable? Unrealistic? Think again! Welcome to Okçular’s Kapız Komünü! We’ll start with a look at the superb and ever-expanding range of social housing that’s tailored to the needs and tastes of the individuals who share our community. Based on our personal experiences of the progress made by the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela, each comes with a ‘tapu’ and unrestricted, responsible use of the surrounding countryside. Kapız is up there with the best:
‘Spadgers End’ and ‘Tawny Owl House’ (complete with metal floor and scented wood shavings) bespoke detached des-res
rustic country cottage ideal for a nice pair of tits
Dubai model high-rise on Palm Island
another charming rural cottage
Then there is the Komünal Kafeteria with its varied à la carte menu:
one of four separate 5 star restaurants
There is even a supply of free-for-use house furnishing/decorating materials:
