a) "the difference is the context in which bernd or bodhi and matthias were/are acting.
bernd bought the house a few years ago, as an individual, having exchange in mind.
bodhi and matthias are acting in the name of a network/community,
which has sharing in mind (according to the mission and vision)"
ok now i see were you are going. For you its about the process in their heads right?
So by your interpretation @bernd did a step in the right direction
--> from exchanging via money to sharing (proactive)
and the people that will participate in wurzen did a step backwards
–> from sharing to exchanging. (contraproductive)
yes i want to justify this a little here:
i guess in life one goes "two step forward and one step back" a lot.
they do share! (their money and the power comes with it) sharing power!
what could be the alternatives there?
burning the money?
- this is against the law (i personally do not want to break any existing law
coz i do not want to endanger the project)
- would just increase the value of the money that is still there
Gifting/sharing it to somebody?
- they do over detours and prevent abuse doing so!
leave it on a bankaccount?
- this would still mean the money is used (but not by them)
- could also do damage if its not a "sustainable bank" (big topic)
of course the money goes to the WGW and i do not know if they will use it
in the name of sharing too^^ maybe even this is possible
even if not the project will have an impact in terms of sharing in wurzen though.
everyone is free to decide if this compensates the Buy there.
i also want to point out that i cannot speak for them completely because
im not actually involved in the buying itself
but i will earn money and share it, which feels like a huge step for me - i like!
b) "if we truly want to share, this implies to build up a
trustful relationship to the person who wants to give it.
and with that relationship one becomes part of yunity (as we can see with bernd)"
being true about sharing" i think none who is using electricity in BD
is completely true about sharing
we just transfer the responsbility of providing it onto someone else.
and we do not share the responsibility there with them. (!)
this has been the case one every wuppdays i guess and i can perfectly understand
why we want to get away from this behavior.
but with being in possesion a house (maybe even solarpowered some day) we bring our selfes in
a state of being able to share surplus energy and therefore provide a solution for that problem too.
trust in my opinion is a complex topic too
it can sometimes be hard to obtain and maintaining it can be even harder.
i mean from what ive heard the the WGW wasnt sure about us even though there is use of money.
yes one could see this as a flaw that we havent been able to build up a realtionship that
was so trustful that someone would give us a house that fits our needs yet
but i think one cannot always get what one wants - and i think we will get there someday.
step by step - i dont want to loose hope yet.
