Great things are occurring in Intentional Community organizations. Many today are looking at building Green and Permaculture planning in their process of creating sustainable living in rural as well as urban and suburban settings.
It's almost as if time spirits from the 60's went to school, experienced all the ups, downs and changes that life can bring, and now armed with "Green Master's Degrees", PhD’s in urban planning, psychology, and agriculture, are coming full cycle to the commune and readjusting their earlier fantasies of Utopia to fit the realities of today's world. Questions remain:
- Who will watch my back when crime rates rise?
- Where will I raise my children as predator populations increase?
- With crack babies now raising meth babies, where will I find a quiet, peaceful place to live?
- How will I earn a living in rural settings ... and perhaps even "flourish rather than just survive?"
White American is on the move working in this direction. Why are we still anchored to places where there is little or no money, and where we are dying?
I attest that this is a window of time when the answers to the questions are not only possible, but point to far greater rewards than we even imagine in these current cities of despair.
