Living in a gift of community

Even in this technology-driven era, it is not hard to imagine a situation where we are dependent on one another and we want our community to support us. A small accident may render us helpless without another individual available to run errands, do simple household chores, or even to keep us company. Just as we design a resilient system on the ground we want to have the same resilient social, economic, cultural and educational guilds. This web of connections is necessary to have a healthy community and a healthy culture. An intentional community is a voluntary group of individuals that want to be together and have common ethics. Each individual with their various skills and knowledge will act upon the vision of the group in much easier fashion than separately or in an involuntary model (most towns or neighborhoods).
