Pk's blog got me to thinking about communes, thrived I suppose in the 60's and 70's, I am curious did anybody here belong or support a commune? I have never even lived in an apartment complex, always just a single family house, I think it would be great sometimes to have folks you like and trust living close to you .. course I know their are bad points to, but just think about it back when folks lived together and grew gardens,and supported each other as a group, seemed to be more peaceful then ....


And dont yall dare bring up Charlie Manson ..... he woulda been crazy regardless of his living arrangements......

I've lived communally a couple times, it's alright for a while...but lack of privacy and having any "stuff" got to me after a while. Mostly the privacy thing...living alone has such better benefits!

They still thrive today, but I never lived in one. I was in the Service durring those times.

I pretty much slept through the 70's. I think mainly from overdoing it in the 60's.........

Everything I have heard about communal living is that unless you have a very close knit group who can overlook each other's flaws.. it's not gonna happen for long. I would love to try it though, with a likeminded bunch.

I have been to several in the sixties but never lived in one. Didn't want to. Everyone is supposed to share. That not only extends to material belongings but also to chores. That is where the problems often were, shared responsibility. There were always people not pulling their weight, people bitching about other people and people ripping off other's weed, etc. The novelty seemed to wear off pretty quickly and much of the concept evolved into a crash pad with a revolving door as people came and went.
Now do bear in mind that I grew up in LA and the communes of which I speak were urban. There was never any little farms that I encountered in the TV stereotype from period.

You know the idea appeals to me...not so much communes as we actually know them...but more like villages I guess...It would be like extended family I think...and everyone must work together in order for the group or individuals within that group to survive...I think it would be comforting
