It sounds like a talented small holding you've got there.

Just hope everyone on the commune will get as long as well. Nice idea!!

the truth is there is bound to be conflict in the communities, and you better have a plan put in place to deal with it, you all have to be on the same page. people are different they want different things and when you live in a tight knit community things start to surface, tempers will flare, divisions will happen. no matter how 'together' you think you are.

i've seen it happen.

but again, great in theory, love to see it work.

I agree. The "idea" is wonderful. It's the working out of it, that becomes the problem.

Taken to the extreme, certain cultlike behaviors come to mind.

yeah, and the thing is, it's never taken to the extreme from the very start, it's slow subtle changes until all of a sudden you have become a prisoner to your way of life

I know what you mean....I watched a documentary on the Jim Jones cult. Initially, the "group" sounded so idyllic and utopian.....their goals of living in harmony, growing their own food appeared on the surface, as genuine.

But look at what they became.The group members eventually gave away their own freewill to their "enlightened" leader, and for the majority of them, it ended in tragedy.


getting back to the topic....nothing wrong tho with the OP's initial ideas

I do hope that people take notice of postings like this.

I'm also very weary indeed about 'going back to nature'... nature can be very cruel! :-/

Yes, nature isn't always wonderful.

We had a thunderstorm here this afternoon- a mini one though- nothing spectacular. This is England, nothing exciting ever happens here!

Its gone from the bringing together of people as a community to some sort of cult in the wilderness.

Sometimes I think about the outcome of communes, too. Anyone seen the film The Wicker Man? That was spooky!

What about the polygamists compound that was exposed recently?

I respect the idea, but if 'kindred' souls come together, then who is there to guide the poor peepz?
When you have power, you have responsibility eh?

i'd have ta disagree with you there devin

but of course, experience probably doesn't hold much weight...perhaps I was programmed to participate in such a venture in the first place!?

but seriously, like i said great idea in theory, people might want to look at those who have gone before though just to get an idea of what HAS gone on before so they can make the best decisions and maybe avoid some of the pitfalls

why can't your approach be... "Guys, I've lived like this before and there was some problems but I learned a lot. Here is how you all can "fine-tune" this way of living..."

no need to roll your eyes. The questions were good and I appreciate them but I still haven't heard specific problems that you had, why you left, etc...

That must have been rather difficult
