ONE SMALL TOWN Canada Reaches More People

UBUNTU's One Small Town plan, and Contributionism, is starting to interest media more and more. Here is an article by Elliot Ferguson, Kingston Whig-Standard - Ontario, Canada.
Thursday, January 18, 2018
PLEVNA — The mayor of North Frontenac is urging the township to take a controversial path to economic development.

Mayor Ron Higgins is proposing that the township’s residents adopt the philosophy of contributionism, where people would be expected to donate three hours a week to community projects in exchange for goods and services from those ventures.
In a presentation to Frontenac County council on Wednesday morning, Higgins said he sees contributionism as a way to create needed economic development, grow the township’s residential and business tax bases, and attract a younger demographic.
“This idea has piqued a lot of interest, but there is no proof of it working yet,” Higgins said.
“This is the very first time anything like this has been done anywhere in the world. The concept has been around for 12 years and I spent six months analyzing this and, to me, it is just a no-brainer to do.”
Higgins said promoting economic development is part of his job as mayor and he was prompted to look into the One Small Town North Frontenac idea because he was disappointed by the results of the township’s economic development task force.
“Whenever you mention this program, there is a lot of skepticism. You are probably skeptical yourselves right now,” he said to county council. “I know our council was, and I was, when I first started this.”
Higgins’ skepticism has been replaced with confidence of success.
In the past, Higgins has been critical of what he said was a lack of economic development efforts in the township by Frontenac County. He went as far as questioning the need for a county manager of economic development.
The head of the economic development task force, Coun. John Inglis, said the proposal would get the same support that any other economic development proposal would receive.
“I have some problems with the contributionism model,” Inglis said. “Having said that, I do think it is wonderful that people from outside, who are younger, are expressing interest in starting businesses in North Frontenac.
“If this has merit, it will proceed.”
If successful, Higgins said, the economic growth would become a revenue source for the township.
In addition to providing the residents with goods and services, the contributionism theory calls for the economic development projects to produce three times what the residents need, with the excess being sold. The revenue would be split between the participants, the development of new products and the investors. The volunteered labour would allow the businesses to underprice competitors.
“My expectation is that within 10 years we will be in a position with this organization to be able to provide funding for infrastructure and other projects within the township of North Frontenac, which means we will be able to reduce municipal taxation,” Higgins said.
But Higgins admitted the need to go slowly and build a solid business case.
The One Small Town movement was developed about 12 years ago by Michael Tellinger, a South African author, scientist, explorer and founder of that county’s Ubuntu Liberation Movement.
Higgins was quick to distance his township’s efforts from any of the politics connected to contributionism.
That is probably wise.
Tellinger has promoted contributionism, with the economic advantage of the free, volunteer labour, as a way to bring down and replace the world banking system and capitalism itself.
The One Small Town manifesto calls for a “revolution of consciousness.”
“The socioeconomic structure of our country and our world has failed us dramatically. The freedoms that our forefathers strived for is in danger of being lost forever,” the manifesto states. “It has fallen on the shoulders of the common people to unite and create a new way, a new system and a beautiful life for ourselves and our children.”
Higgins said planning for two projects — an apiary and a wellness centre — has already started, and the One Small Town North Frontenac efforts are to be administered by a group called Contribute and Thrive North Frontenac.
Higgins said another business in the township is building “Earthships,” passive solar houses made from recycled and natural materials. Higgins said the company plans to build a community of between 80 and 120 homes and could attract younger people to the municipality.

2017 End of Year Message - From Michael Tellinger

Please view a short video message to wind up 2017 and lay an exciting foundation for 2018.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suQ6I2a6zhw&feature=youtu.be


2017 was truly an unimaginable year of expansion and growth on so many levels, especially for the UBUNTU Movement. 
I need to thank all the UBUNTU coordinators and activators who have been working behind the scenes, on the core management teams, in their own communities, and in other ways in their own time, to spread the UBUNTU message. You have my deep gratitude for your ongoing support and contribution.
I will be sharing a series of videos and messages in the days to come, which will outline our our new focused plan of action for 2018.
We have walked an amazing long and winding road since 2005, when the Contributionism idea was first born and quickly evolved into the UBUNTU Movement. But until now we were mostly just another movement with a great philosophy, but the strategy of what to do and how to achieve our goals has been evolving all this time.
The rapid success of our ONE SMALL TOWN strategy in 2017 has laid the foundation for a clear focused plan of action for 2018.
In the days to come, I will be sharing more specific details of our plan, and how to take this forward in a structured way.
The one thing we must guard against is enthused people running off in all directions, speaking to mayors and possibly misrepresenting our plan, because they do not know enough about the details.
We are creating a series of written material, videos, training, and more for all those who want to participate in spreading the message on a more active level. This will also give our National Coordinators and the UBUNTU Core Management teams a clear guideline of how to manage the growth of UBUNTU in their countries and local areas. I also need to find a way to work closer with the coordinators of the different countries.
I look forward with great excitement to how 2018 will unfold.
 
In unity & resonance

Founder of the UBUNTU Movement

Out of the darkest hour - Comes the brightest light



A Message to the UBUNTU family around the world and conscious beings everywhere. 
From Michael Tellinger- 31 Dec 2017


Imagine growing up in a family where one day your parents tell you that they love you, and the next day they tell you that they hate you, and that you are ugly and bad. This results in serious mental emotional trauma and psychological disturbances in your personality. There are many people who experience this kind of trauma for long periods of their lives. It is unimaginable to me - that someone could be exposed to such torture.




On a larger scale, all of humanity is treated in the same way by our leaders and the global elite who run the world. It is critical to recognise how humanity has been manipulated and lied to for millennia by the royal-political elite. Because of these lies and deceptions, humanity is deeply scarred, and traumatised and divided. And because the lies are cunningly mixed in with pinches of truth throughout all our lives, and all of history, it becomes very difficult to separate the lies from the truth. This is a perfect tool of psychological warfare and control over the people.



Most of us beautiful, loving, and trusting humans, cannot imagine that anyone, especially our governments, could be so brutal and manipulative. This has become our biggest weakness and we become our own prison guards, keeping us enslaved in an induced hypnotic state of unconsciousness. Perfectly primed for ongoing lies and manipulation. These lies penetrate every crack and crevice of our existence. And the bigger the lie, the more we are inclined to believe it.



From our origins, to religion, history, nature of reality, space, the cosmos, and even the fundamentals of science. Because most of us cannot figure out WHY someone would want to lie to us, and because we cannot imagine that such a big lie could be controlled without leaking, we brush it aside and assume that it cannot be a lie and that our leaders cannot be lying to us. In that moment we use our uninformed, innocent, ignorant, and naive powers of logic to hand the control right back to the elite slave masters, and once again we become the prison guards of our own state of unconsciousness.



But, consciousness never sleeps, it never stops resonating throughout all of creation, even inside the most disconnected and unconscious among us. It never stops activating our DNA inside every cell, allowing us to start thinking higher thoughts, waking up from our deep unconscious sleep and recognising the lies and manipulation imposed on humanity. Even the elite that are causing so much trauma and misery are not immune to it.



This rapid rise in unity consciousness and awakening of humanity is a huge problem for the elite. This is why it seems that things are getting worse and governments are doing insane things that destroy our freedom and liberty. More draconian laws are created weekly, restricting our rights and more financial hardships imposed by those who control the supply of money.



While these may seem as deeply depressing times and very few can imagine a way out of this mess, it is critical that we recognise these actions as the undeniable behaviour of those who are in a deep state of panic and fear. The global elite are panicking - they know that they are in deep trouble - that their time is almost up - that the new age of enlightenment and higher consciousness is upon us - and that they cannot fight the unifying resonance of the consciousness field of creation, or as some may call it, GOD.



If we do not learn from our experiences, we become stagnant and a perfect target for ongoing exploitation. I urge all my fellow humans to realise that we are rising rapidly out of the state of unconsciousness. There are hundreds of millions of enlightened people in the world that know there is a better way for all of us.



Unfortunately, these conscious people often feel alone and marginalised, not realising that they are part of a large group of activators. Because we are so deeply divided, most of us do not realise the influence we hold, and what we can manifest if only we spoke with one voice. The more extreme the actions of our governments and banking elite, the closer we are to a new world of absolute liberty and freedom from economic slavery.



Over the past 12 years, since 2005, the UBUNTU Movement and our message has evolved and spread to millions. Our strategy has grown and evolved itself to the simple ONE SMALL TOWN, Will Change the World strategy. This simple plan is so powerful and self-driven, that once implemented successfully, it will become unstoppable. We are not only talking about it, we are doing it.



In November 2017, the first UBUNTU One Small Town was initiated by Mayor Ron Higgins in North Frontenac, Canada, and immediately captured the imagination of hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. Mayor Higgins is on a roll - receiving thousands of emails of support, and even contact from investors who want to invest in North Frontenac because of the attractive investment opportunity.



All of this came from our 12-year journey of discovery, learning from our mistakes and experiences and realising that we can no longer oppose anything. The energy of opposition or resistance is part of the old paradigm. Even our opposition to the money slavery system was misguided. Our activity in politics also created a situation where we became an opposing party.



But the moment when we adopted the philosophy of “using the tools of enslavement as tools of liberation” everything shifted almost overnight. Just like in martial arts, we have learned to use the flow of energy, and not to oppose such energy. By simply using the powerful flow of energy which is used to enslave us, and turning it around to serve us, we will create abundance and prosperity for everyone, on every level of our existence, without any violence opposition or conflict.



While 2017 may have been the darkest year for many, it is ending on the highest possible note imaginable. We are making contact with numerous mayors in Canada, South Africa, USA, UK, Australia, and even Madagascar. We cannot imagine what will happen in 2018, whatever it is, it will take us by surprise and transcend our current state of consciousness and invite us in to resonate with our own creation.



Many prophets and teachers throughout the ages have told us that we are one with God, and that God is within each and every one of us. And since we are all infinite souls, one with the creator, having a human physical experience, I urge you to embrace this knowing without any fears or reservation. We are the ones we have been waiting for, and we are the creators of our own reality, it is up to us to create the kind of world we would like to live in.



So, let us think beautiful thoughts, speak beautiful words, share beautiful moments, and dream beautiful dreams of prosperity, abundance, and true freedom for all of humanity. Let 2018 be the year in which UBUNTU becomes the unifying resonance for everyone.

In unity and resonance

Michael Tellinger
