ATS rules state I'm not allowed to recruit people for a cause or get them to sign up for anything. So let me ask you this: Do you guys have any ideas as to how one could sort out the problems we face today with a focus on splitting into small communities of 100. I.e. if we were to split into 100 acre blocks...how would we sustain it internally without becoming Jonestown slash how could we have connectivity between 'superblocks' of 10000 people. What would be required? Doctors, Engineers, Vets, Farmers...I guess I'm asking how would you operate a 100 person, self sustaining town / a 1000 person super block.

I would say you probably can't do this right now. There's nothing to really bring people together for a sustained period of time. You would need a huge catalyst to take advantage of.
"Activism" is almost dead and mindless opinion has taken over.
You might have success recruiting fringe members of society; but managing a large group of random people that isn't being paid to be somewhere is a huge undertaking.

Like every attempt to build an alternate community, weird things will go down, the group will splinter, and things will likely spiral out of control.

Just keep thread going here. To start.. Land belongs to someone or some group, and that group controls the land... at least by yearly taxes.

You'd always answer to someone or some gov., group etc... It's hard to start a commune for example 100 miles up a mountain... Because someone owns the mountain, area, land etc.

Total independence, self government, on land free and clear of some kind of gov.
ownership, control, miltary-gov. policing 100% is a fallacy in reality

It is not possible under the current conditions however... If you agree to make me dictator I have a secret plan that could accomplish this in a short amount of time.

This might be of interest to you.

There are some very rich people trying to work this out already.

Look at your average family that know each other, love and care for each other. How often does things go smoothly in the home? How often does everyone want the same things at the same time? How often does everyone agree to go along with what the majority decides?

Now take groups of 100 strangers, regardless to what you think they bring to the community, and ask yourself how this could work unless there was so awfully potent glue holding the group together.

I just watched season one of "The "3%". It gives you a short glimpse of human nature in the face of survival. There are quite a few other movies that also does a good job at showing humanity's short coming when survival is the ultimate goal.

If you are looking to do this for yourself and 99 other people then I actually think you could find enough like minded individuals to along with our idea. I remember the movie ‘The Village’ which is sort of what you are looking to do, however, if you were attempting to make your idea mainstream it won’t happen.

I think those of us here would have to admit we have met the challenge of the ultimate goal of survival.
