For Our Future Generations
"We can learn about it from exceptional people of our own culture, and from other cultures less destructive than ours. I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children."
The cost to join Love Communities is 250,000 USD per person. This price includes a small weekly salary, health insurance, and other insurance policies, food, legal, taxes, administrative, security, maintenance, sanitation, everything to run the community for approximately five years.
So that nobody is excluded based on monetary reasons alone, an extra six percent fee is included in the cost for 135 people. Therefore, we will be able to accept at least nine people per community who are exceptional and meet all other criteria, except financial.
The 135 people x 250,000 USD = 33,750,000 USD. There will also be approximately 20 mothers and 20 children, so the total = 43,750,000 USD, plus the monolithic dome people chose as their home. The prices for the domes will start at about 125,000 USD and go up to 1,000,000 USD, with solar energy included. For more see the Monolithic Domes section and the Solar Energy section.
Each of the Love Communities will have a state of the art health club in a monolithic dome. They will also have a 20 yard long (44 full laps equals one mile) 3 lane swimming pool with an extra wading area, a large hot tub, two saunas, two clay tennis courts with lights, one full-sized basketball court with lights, shuffleboard courts, and a playground for toddlers, children, and adults. For more see the Exercise section.

which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run."
