 "In the middle of the seventeenth century, agrarian communities that defied the all-powerful nobility spread across the fields of England and survived."


"Centuries have passed and the words spoken and written by one of the communities' stalwarts, Gerrard Winstanley, still resound: 

The Father is the Spirit of Community and thy Mother is the Earth.

In the beginning of Time, the great Creator Reason, made the Earth to be a Common Treasury, but not one word was spoken that one branch of mankind should rule over another.

Every man and woman shall have the free liberty to marry whom they love, if they can obtain the love and liking of that party whom they would marry.

If the earth were set free from kingly bondage, many secrets of God and his works in nature would be made public, which men nowadays keep secret to get a living by. But when commonwealth's freedom is established, then will knowledge cover the earth, as the waters cover the seas."


------Eduardo Galeano, Hunter of Stories
