Prepper Communities

Postby onealintx » Wed Nov 09, 2011 12:41 am

I am just writing to get opinions on prepper communities. I mean like 6 or 7 families getting together and buy some large plot of land and lived together and shared all the labors, and living self sufficient.

Sub-divide the land so each family owns their own portion and you aren't all tied to the same mortgage, that way if one goes down all don't go down. Sharing never works over the long term. Take the time and write down the agreement between the families in terms of any terms, conditions, agreements and expectations. Make sure all the adults are in agreement, not just one spouse who is gung-ho and the other spouse is just being drug along. Decide now what happens to children that grow to adulthood and their relationship to the community, parents can bind them to the agreement while they are young, but once they become adults they are no longer bound by any of the rules and should be recruited or rejected like any other potentially new member.

I know a couple of retreat groups that have formed and are struggling now because they thought it would all work because they were all “like-minded”, but when it comes to actual work and money people are not as like-minded as they might think. That’s my 2 cents.

The key question is commune or community. Communes generally fail. At best they develop a strong leader and become something less than the equal for all dream it started with. A community respects the individual and his contribution, but without central control might change into something you no longer want to be in.
