Welcome to the Niche Finder network
This is an invitation to freedom-loving people to help each other "find their niche".
One of the key aspirations is to help people to find and / or build a home.
More generally, people are invited to use this forum to figure out ways of helping and supporting each other, period.
We provide basic tools which allow people to help and support each other - to share and provide goods, services, spaces and transport. This is all done in a non-commercial spirit.
- liberty, autonomy, voluntaryism - a general skepticism of all coercive authorities - including the state and certain religious institutions
- health freedom - against medical tyranny and eugenics, skepticism of 'public health' ideology
- no to landlordism - whatever our views on other forms of private property, land is unique
- informal charity / gift economy - we invite people to support each other directly and provide simple tools to facilitate this
This network is for people interested in sharing, mutual aid, and helping and supporting each other. We want to help like-minded people to find a 'niche' suited to their goals and values.
Supporting each other
Helping and supporting each other should not be the job of specialist 'charities' - or something we do in our 'spare time'. It should be part of our daily work - and elevated to one of our highest priorities. We provide basic tools to make it easier for people to do this.
We embrace a simple set of values, and expect anyone who joins to share these. You can read more about them here. These include positions on money and motivation, empathy and self-interest, land and ownership and non-coercion.
You can read about our values at global Nichefinder site.
Why bother you ask? What's the point?
One might equally well ask: Why not?
Nonetheless, to give you an inkling of our motivation ...
- Because we would like others to do the same for us if circumstances required it
- Because it accords with our intution
- Because we don't believe that either the government or charities do it properly
We don't regard ourselves as saints - or expect others to be. We don't even necessarily regard ourselves as altruistic - at least not entirely.
Ultimately though ... Should people really have to provide a justification for offering to help someone else? Unlike the state, we don't propose to levy a tax to support our efforts.
