Ecosteader's instance of Mastodon
This fork of the
tootsuite/mastodon/ repo to continue the work that was started
with the original
indie/spacemin RoR site ... development on this fork will likely
follow the Apache-friendly ways. Please help share ECOLOGICAL DEMOCRACY that may
someday heal the planet.
Note: Anyone working for EVIL SALESFORCE or Twitter or Heroku is NOT WELCOME HERE; your code will be deleted and your IPs will be banned from the network.
Ecosteader is a network for builders, designers, and innovators of "green" or eco-friendly habitats, gardens, homesteads, farms, artwork, and more. We share ideas and inspirations with a friendly hippie environmentalist kinda vibe.
Ecosteading is like homesteading, but it's meant to be done on a much smaller, more humble, more efficient scale; unlike traditional homesteading, it can be done with any amount of land or space -- in either urban and rural settings. Ecosteading is also about acknowledging that humans are but one user of shared soil. This philosophy is sometimes called Community Ecology.
Being an Ecosteader involves systems-level thinking. With the advent of AI and technology, we know that smart systems require networking, and in order to best take a systems-level approach, people need to network. But wait! We're not talking about "networking" the traditional greed-driven ways that have driven the last 200 years of American real estate "development".

anti-landlords, and against corrupt politicians.We are anti-Realtors,
Ecological Democracy begins locally
Instead, we endorse owner-occupied ecosteads, with practical, simple, and earth-friendly stewardship of lands including nature preservation areas, habitat restoration areas, and America's public lands. We're supportive of efforts in county-level infrastructure, where laws and shared community vision and goals can be articulated and implemented by the residents and voters themselves through democratic processes. We are also staunchly anti-HOA; HOAs divert what would otherwise be publicly-accountable taxpayer dollars into privately-managed coffers with no accountability, often forcing residents to be governed under rules and bylaws that promote gerrymandering and exclusionary zoning that is harmful to ecosystems (think golf courses and walls). They also destroy community spirit.
This Mastodon instance run by Ecosteader & Company, a registered Public Benefit with a non-profit mission: to raise awareness of the ecological and economical benefits of ecosteading. We help people escape the slavery of rent and work around the greedy actors in real estate by providing them with tools, resources, and information they need to make their own contracts and cut out corrupt middlemen.
- REMEMBER: ALL of Donald Trumps's guys are corrupt.
- REMEMBER: Salesforce is also doing Trump's dirty work.
- Insider dumping is one reason Salesforce === EvilCorp
- Facilitating sex trafficking is another
- The Trump administration hired Salesforce to terrorize and kill children using the US Border Patrol
- Heroku is Salesforce, not Rails. Heroku is EVIL middleware peddled by Salesforce.
- Accenture is a Salesforce SHELL COMPANY wasting your taxpayer dollars.
- Salesforce CEO and Hypocrite-of-the-Century Marc Benioff only wants people to think he cares about homelessness; the money he "donates" to "homeless causes" are actually used to perpetuate tax fraud of his shell companies

Don't get scammed by Realtors It's NEVER a good idea invite a Realtor or realty brokerage affiliate to your property. An agent that tells you any forms or terms on a contract are "standard" or "not negotiable" -- especially the usage of a percent as a commission -- can and should be sued for coercion! Remember: it's YOU hiring THEM, not the other way around. See also: https://old.reddit.com/r/RealtorsSuck/
