'Itan Atxur:
Still though, just the fact that we HAVE to run a business...

Tsteu'itan:
Having a way to pay the bills isn't what would bother me.  That's understandable, everyone has to do it.  Just talk of "CEOs" and "Businesses" brings up images of "Big Business" in my mind.  I'm extremely jaded to it all, sorry.   :-[  Big business is one of the biggest reasons I'm half-ready to wash my hands of all this BS we put up with day to day in society.  I've been reading Orwell's 1984 recently, and the comparisons I've been able to draw between Big Brother and BB (Holy Cow, even the initials of the two things are the same!  OAO) have disturbed me.  I don't like being one of those people running around shouting about how "Big Brother" is coming to get us, but geez, if it doesn't make me think!

That being said, I fully understand that there will be a need for some form of money-making endeavor in this.  There will always be something in the modern world that requires your money, even to the point of paying for the land that is acquired for the tribe.  I just think it's best to avoid associating with big companies or having to run things like they do in any way.  :/  In those cases, it's all about paying the people on top as much as possible, and they couldn't give a **** about the people who work under them.  Having a "CEO" from the country become the proprietor of the group in order to get Visas just makes me worry that in the end, it will end up having to be someone not associated with the group at all, and that could lead to the individual abusing the group for their own gain.

All-in-all, naming some person the "CEO" of your lifestyle just sounds like a perversion of the idea to me.  Then it wouldn't be your life or your dream of a harmonious life in touch with nature, it would be your job.  If that makes sense?

Sorry, I may not be making aaaany sense.  :/

Tonbogiri:
Don't worry, I understand completely. It does seem contradictory to use terms like these, but when you need to be taken seriously by these people you need to talk to them in their own crazy language. Trying to speak to them in Na'Vi wouldn't go down so well...
You have raised a good point:

We would need to make sure that, if we did use that method, the person was committed, long term, to helping us. Kinda hard to find, anyone know any Brazilian members on the forum?

The main reason for this land choice is simply the price tag. Whilst still at 750,000 euros, it is still much cheaper than most other properties. Immigration is a real kick though.

Me and Txontaw (Wherever he is) were going to be A business, game making, but I'm not sure he it would cover for the whole tribe.

Key'├Čl Nekxetse:
I think we could set the business up with a number of partners, and each of us would be a partner. That would prevent many problems. Then we leave it in a state such that we don't have to do anything with it.
