‘We can continue to whine about the state of the world,
or we can employ our imagination to explore how to do better.’
‘In this town experiment, we put all ideas to a practical test, be it ideas for businesses, health, ecology, society, arts, and every other idea. We create a complex microcosm and find out whether we as human can’t do better after all. Come on, let’s explore. Let’s take nothing for granted or proven. Who knows what we may find?’
‘And for all that, I am to hand over half of my fortune?’
‘You’d still be one of the richest men on the planet. Aren’t you past the age where you need to verify your cock’s length by your account balance? I believe you’re better than that. At least I hope you are.’
seven years easy town
a town experiment
by Charlie A Raya
Beginning is a novel and book 1 of the
series: Seven Years Easy Town
About book 1: beginning
Alice is fed up with the world, and she wonders whether a town experiment could help to test some ideas. In a meeting with the billionaire Tom Holbon, she proposes to build a town where the very fabric of how economies and societies work could be questioned and alternatives tested.
About book 2: travelling
Travelling around the world, Alice and her team set up an international network for the Easy Town Project. Travelling with them are the past, personal demons, prejudice and unwittingly the issue of sex.
what is it
‘We are simply annoyed with how the world is run. And we want to do an experiment which might prove that we – all of us – can do better. That’s all there is to it.’
book 2: travelling, chapter 5, South Africa
At first there was the idea for an Easy Town. Then I used daydreams to explore the economic, sociatial, environmental and other implications, regarding the town I had in mind. One of these daydreams send me into a story which I liked so much that I eventually decided to write it.
Since the story covers seven years, it doesn’t fit into a single book. The books cover different time spans, from one day in Year 3 to nearly two years in the last book.
And there I was, in love with a story, full of ideas and some good drama, and even some fairy tale bits, later in the series.
The story of the town’s planning, building, and running, is, of course, just a thought experiment. But, for all I know, a useful one. And it’s fun.
‘If this project goes ahead, experts of many professions will be needed. But, the project also needs people who aren’t academics. Playfulness, openness and ease are just as important to make this work.’
‘And you think I could help?’
‘I’ve seen your playfulness on screen, and I’m sort of hoping it wasn’t all acting.’
