The Ubuntu Movement has a simple plan to turn our small towns into of the founding principles of our proposed system of Contributionism.
Reported translations covered the semantic field of "human nature, humanness, humanity; virtue, goodness, kindness". From the s, the ubuntu began to be described as a specific kind of "African humanism". Based on the context of Africanisation propagated by the political thinkers in the s period of decolonisation , ubuntu was used as a term for a specifically African or Southern African kind of humanism found in the context of the transition to majority rule in Zimbabwe and South Africa. The first publication dedicated to ubuntu as a philosophical concept appeared in , Hunhuism or Ubuntuism: A Zimbabwe Indigenous Political Philosophy hunhu being the Shona equivalent of Nguni ubuntu by Stanlake J.

The Ubuntu Movement has a simple plan to turn our small towns into places of abundance and prosperity for all the people, where there are no hurdles to progress or restrictions on personal growth of the people.
Communities that will support and promote unbridled creative expression in all areas of our lives — arts, culture, science, technology, healthcare, environment, architecture, agriculture, and all other areas of human activity.
But in order to create such harmonious communities, we, the people, must lead a Revolution of Consciousness, without the need for any violence, opposition or conflict — by simply creating a new alternative — a new system — a new way of doing things — because the old way simply does not work for us anymore.
We are creating a new system in which we turn competition into collaboration. A new society in which we all benefit from our collective efforts and individual talents. We will no longer be the slaves that enrich the corporations and a few powerful individuals.
The Ubuntu plan provides a blueprint for a new social structure, which delivers freedom from financial slavery to the whole town and everyone who participates. Rejuvenate our town with diverse industry and innovation that will provide work for everyone — not just a chosen few.
Support our inventors and scientists to create new technologies on every level which will include an alternative energy supply that is eco-friendly and provide electricity at no cost to the community. Support our farmers to grow an abundance of organic food and banish GMO companies like Monsanto that are destroying our seeds and food security.
Support our healers to develop new methods and technologies that truly heal people, and provide cures for most diseases, which many of us know is possible. Ensure the growth of traditional healing plants and prevent the pharmaceutical mafia from eliminating these plants. Support our teachers to develop an alternative education system that teaches our children real skills for life and opens their eyes to infinite possibilities.
Support our Master Craftsmen to share their knowledge and skills with those who wish to learn. Evolve into communities free from the economic stranglehold created by the banking cartels. If people could get things for free, why would they be motivated to do any job?
You have many skills and various passions that you have developed throughout your life.
Now you can put them to productive use. The reason why everything is available to everyone all the time is because of this very simple principle. In an UBUNTU community this will be highly unlikely, because you will be pursuing many other hobbies and passions — all for free, which access to all the tools you need to pursue such hobbies — just because you have chosen to stay in this community and contribute your labor of love for the benefit of everyone. Everyone is allocated land by the community and Council of Elders, based on what they do for the community.
Material possessions do not exist because everything is available to everyone all the time.
Big mansions and expensive cars are a side-effect of capitalism, only afforded by those with money, mostly to show off their material wealth that separates them from those who cannot afford it. They are status symbols, mere expressions of ego than anything else, causing separation and creating envy with the rest of the problems we are trying to eradicate from our lives…Much of what you may have accumulated in your life will have a different meaning or value to you in a moneyless society where everything is available to everyone.
You will have access to infinitely more things that you can imagine at this present moment. You will most likely get rid of all the junk you have been hoarding — knowing that if you need something, you can go get it or simply order it to your exact specifications. It is impossible for us to make a value judgment on human nature while being trapped in the matrix.
We are so caught up in the matrix where most of still deny that we are utterly enslaved by the system. Our perception of humanity is totally skewed by the community we grow up in.
Show me a person who will not give their time and energy for something that they truly enjoy.
Our values and morals are dictated to us by others with ulterior motives. Our view of the world and humanity around us is dictated by the global media and politicians who promote war and conflict above peace and unity. We are constantly told that people are inherently lazy. We are told that unless we work hard we will never amount to anything. We live with constant stress on so many levels, it is a miracle we can function at all.
Most of us do work we hate, but we have to do it just to survive. Laziness is a consequence of capitalism — it is not part of human nature…Maybe the so-called lazy people know instinctively that only a rat can win the rat-race, and and they choose not to be part of that race. Those who say that human nature is to be lazy and confrontational have become clones of the capitalist indoctrination and have forgotten what it is to be human. People are born with natural talents, gifts and passion for different things.
Those talents are destroyed throughout our childhood by the education system and society at large. Eventually people forget their dreams and passions and simply take on any job just to survive.
Human nature is completely contrary to these characteristics. Based on the context of Africanisation propagated by the political thinkers in the s period of decolonisation , ubuntu was used as a term for a specifically African or Southern African kind of humanism found in the context of the transition to majority rule in Zimbabwe and South Africa.
The first publication dedicated to ubuntu as a philosophical concept appeared in , Hunhuism or Ubuntuism: A Zimbabwe Indigenous Political Philosophy hunhu being the Shona equivalent of Nguni ubuntu by Stanlake J.
Hunhuism or Ubuntuism is presented as political ideology for the new Zimbabwe, as Southern Rhodesia was granted independence from the United Kingdom. From Zimbabwe, the concept was taken over in South Africa in the s as a guiding ideal for the transition from apartheid to majority rule.
The term appears in the Epilogue of the Interim Constitution of South Africa , "there is a need for understanding but not for vengeance, a need for reparation but not for retaliation, a need for ubuntu but not for victimisation". Ubuntu asserts that society, not a transcendent being, gives human beings their humanity. In each of these examples, humanity comes from conforming to or being part of the tribe. This idealism suggests to us that humanity is not embedded in my person solely as an individual; my humanity is co-substantively bestowed upon the other and me.
Humanity is a quality we owe to each other. We create each other and need to sustain this otherness creation. And if we belong to each other, we participate in our creations: we are because you are, and since you are, definitely I am. There is sincere warmth with which people treat both strangers and members of the community.
This overt display of warmth is not merely aesthetic but enables formation of spontaneous communities. The resultant collaborative work within these spontaneous communities transcends the aesthetic and gives functional significance to the value of warmth.
How else are you to ask for sugar from your neighbour? Warmth is not the sine qua non of community formation but guards against instrumentalist relationships. Unfortunately, sincere warmth may leave one vulnerable to those with ulterior motives. This socialisation is a vestige of agrarian peoples as a hedge against the crop failures of individuals.
Socialisation presupposes a community population with which individuals empathise and concomitantly, have a vested interest in its collective prosperity.
Urbanisation and the aggregation of people into an abstract and bureaucratic state undermines this empathy. African Intellectual historians like Michael Onyebuchi Eze have argued however that this ideal of "collective responsibility" must not be understood as absolute in which the community's good is prior to the individual's good.
On this view, ubuntu it is argued, is a communitarian philosophy that is widely differentiated from the Western notion of communitarian socialism. In fact, ubuntu induces an ideal of shared human subjectivity that promotes a community's good through an unconditional recognition and appreciation of individual uniqueness and difference  Audrey Tang has suggested that Ubuntu "implies that everyone has different skills and strengths; people are not isolated, and through mutual support they can help each other to complete themselves.
The belief is that man is born formless like a lump of clay.
