Parallel Construction

I saw a post on social media that grabbed my attention.

“I started reading Vaclav Havel’s “Power of the Powerless”. The Soviet dissident who went on to become the president of the Czech Republic…

“Like you’re saying, he said the most powerful weapon against the state is parallel construction. More powerful that combat, protest, or anything else.”

I have seen similar written elsewhere by Buckminster Fuller:
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

I have personally felt the inclination do do this by buying a farm and starting to gather a group of people into a self sufficient survival club of some description. I would be interested to hear if you have read Power of the Powerless.
