Well, I'm definitely staying through college for my bachelors, and I was planning on a doctorate, which means I'll be getting my B.A. in 2011. However, I'm the only one that I know of that can theoretically commit to things if we choose Caldwell immediately.

(3.5 ftw, but I do have to admit there are aspects of 2.0 that I like better).

Yea...I know Berior & I will only be able to join in once we can actually move, since I'll be moving from Cali and him from all the way in Belgium since he's not a citizen yet Surprised

Can we get either a separate forum category or a sub forum for the Urban Commune?

Meanwhile:

Since it seems that LeReve and I will be able to start the urban commune (names?  Sticking w/ Liberation Garden(s)?) in a year or so (next summer, LeReve?), I'd like to put for a few rules (dislike that word), excuse me: guidelines, for your approval.

So, without further adieu:

1: Do not take action that will intentionally harm your commune-mates without their express approval beforehand.

2: Pay your way; that is, either help pay the rent for the building, or help out more around the house, doing chores to "pay" for your room and board.

3: Don't unnecessarily destroy parts of the commune.

4: Absolutely no proselytizing!  We're all tolerant people, until you start pushing your beliefs onto us.  This includes all beliefs, not just religious ones!  Feel free to argue constructively, but simply spouting rhetoric is the equivalent of a long walk off a short pier for you.

5: Trust your mates as far as you can; we're all in this together.

6: Related to numbers 1 and 5, please don't bring illegal stuff into the commune without consulting the rest of us first (drugs, etc).  

I'm personally open to having all soft drugs, but I'm strongly against the hard ones (especially alcohol and cigarettes).

Now, obviously, there's a lot of areas that I haven't touched (I don't know what most of them are, otherwise I'd have mentioned them!  Very Happy  Such things as decision-making, division of chores, etc)

Feel free to post any additions/changes, but I'd like to keep this as short and succint as possible.

I could just turn over the forum to the Urban Commune.

So has everyone realized that they are over-thinking this way too much?  Or that by the time you finish with school and pick up a career you aren't going to be in a position really to start a commune?
Or has everyone simply moved on because the fantasy of a commune was so much cooler than the effort required to make it work?
For some reason you all stopped posting over a year ago.  I would simply like to know if you gave up on the idea.
I hope that you didn't, and the reason this forum seems to have died is that the commune is in fact being born and starting to come together.

So far as I'm aware, it's a waiting game. Most of us intend to finish college. Myself, the commune is a definite goal and reality in my mind, though we haven't gotten it officially "started" yet.

As for overthinking, it's my opinion that intentionality and consciousness are two of the most useful and least harnessed energies we as people are capable of.

Additionally, my personal goals have the commune as one facet, indeed one of the easier ones, of a much grander scheme. However, it is an *integral* facet, seeing as how it will dictate the means of subsistence.

Nice to meet you, Chill.

How about it? Anybody else still here, still in? I expect Selkie and her man to be in, right? Zee, you still need to finish school? And Vov, still in once you're of age and finished with high school? Christie (Tuff) may still be interested, but it seemed to me she was much more interested the final product. Glor seemed to have dropped the idea, probably, and wants to work his land?

And have I already suggested Hamilton, MT, because of the commune, workable land, and hOURs barter system?

Hey; still here.

My story is similar.  I'm still in college, and will be for one more year, then I'm done, and no plans after.  I have my goals, though they are much more related to personal development, and have little concreteness to them.  

I've changed a lot in the past few months, the biggest changes simply being a better understanding of who I am, but I'm still very interested in starting a commune.

And no, I don't think we're overthinking this at all.  Thinking ahead saves us from having to do as much social problem solving during the process.  And while I know we'll have to do it anyway, we can totally save ourselves some hassle if we plan ahead.

And I'm glad we have a new member.  Very Happy
