I've been researching a lot of these eco-villages and communes for my class project on resilient community design and there is a huge design flaw in all of these groups. An complete and total lack of diversity.

Sure everyone shares everything 100% but you know what that means? Everyone is expected to contribute all of their money and all of their labor. In some cases, they are sharing mortgages etc. No one can just leave these types of arrangements... It's scary. This is just terrible design...


@RadioAngel a friend of mine has compared this kind of communities to cults

@vanessa They can be pretty similar. One of the few things that keeps them from essentially being a cult is lack of a leader. The group decides everything. However, that can go sideways pretty quickly.
