Default Does Society Suck?

(sorry if this is a repost- server is being wonky)

There is an alternative. There is another way, a better way.

Remember that old 'commune' movement back in the '60s? "Let's all live
together in peace and harmony and share what we have to make a better world"

Guess what? 'Communes' grew up!! Now called 'Intentional Communities', you
can find everything from egalitarian (all are equal), income-sharing,
eco-villages to 'spiritual retreats'. Some places you 'buy' into and get
your own place, other places don't require any 'investment' other than your
ability and willingness to help out. Awesome places to raise kids (think
ideally no violence, no corruption, no commercialism, healthy fresh organic
food, YOU control your child's curriculum).

Curious? Come learn more!

Want to talk and learn about Intentional Community? Want to connect with
other Communities and Communitarians?

We're a new forum with lots of neat perks. Registration is free and simple.
Come see what we're all about!

You can still see many successful, fully functioning communes that date
back to the sixties. They are still called communes, and guess what? They
are all grown up.

Crap. Schooling is haphazard and low standard, most adults are heavily into
drugs, many are vegetarians and suffer the various illnesses associated
with that lifestyle.

Not from a clueless fruit loop like you I won't.

Nope.

Not interested. This is about permaculture, not newage bullshit.

Why? You are obviously quite clueless.

You can still see many successful, fully functioning 'communes' that date...
much much further back than the sixties. Sometimes they are called
'communes', sometimes not. As for being 'all grown up', that was just a
colorful way of saying that the more successful communities learned what it
takes to BE successful, such as a lot of planning, guidelines, membership
limits, ways to sustain themselves financially and the list goes on.

Crap. Schooling is haphazard and low standard, most adults are heavily

into
drugs, many are vegetarians and suffer the various illnesses associated
with that lifestyle.


Depends on where you go. The best communities are NOT into 'drugs', that's a
fallacy, at least no more so and probably LESS so, than society anywhere.
The primary places I've been in contact with actually discourage drug use to
the point of only allowing smoking in certain restricted areas (even
outside). Some are vegetarians, some are not, most are a blend of both. As
for suffering illnesses associated with 'that lifestyle'?? That's just
naive. People living in modern-day 'communes' are some of the healthiest
I've seen, especially the children.

Anyone who takes the time to actually look into the movement will quickly
conclude that I'm not the clueless one.

"Newage"?!? Where did that come from? Unless you mean like.. moving into a
new age, which is where the idea of permaculture belongs. Many Intentional
Communities are also Eco-Villages (or at least moving in that direction far
more than mainstream society). Tell me how that doesn't apply?

Don't bother people, their web site is full of naive misinformed crap.


You obviously didn't even bother to look. After all, why would you with your
assertion that you're not interested in IC? Someone has a boulder-sized chip
on their shoulder. Why all the hostility? This newsgroup hadn't even seen a
new post in months.
