• Helene,


    Are you aware of the Fellowship for Intentional Community? http://www.ic.org This organization has been the major supporter of commons communities around the world since at least the early 70's. Their current index lists 2433 communities. I was an active member during the 70's and 80's. One of the major problems we struggled with was keeping the communities together when their founders either died or left the community. The failure rate was very high. The lessons learned going through that experience were profound. Understanding and mitigating the failures has been a focus of my life since then. I’ve made major discoveries that can address the problems, which are not know by society. This is what I hoped to contribute when I joined CAN. So, please help me understand how to present these discoveries. Without the knowledge I’ve found, I’m afraid your efforts will be doomed to repeat the failures of the past.
