I kind of understand what you mean. Some would consider a hippy commune a forward movement. I personally wouldn't.
Either way a hippy commune is definitely not my definition of the dream I have in mind.
Imagine a place where life is still of great quality because of the commune's self sustainability. It has electricity, hot water, lot's of processed
foods. All made within the community. It's modern life but without an alarm clock next to your bed.
Aside from the materialistic comfort there is also psychological comfort.
A place respectively far into nature or other environment where the common Joe usually does not come.
The people that either founded this commune or joined it on a later occasion apply a set of mindsets that make it possible to have different religions
side by side if they desire so.
Have respect for everyone, listen to everyone and be patient. Certain civil mindsets that should be applied throughout the rest of your life to keep
harmony and friendship. If this is a trouble for a person then his or her place would not be in the commune.
Contribute to the community as a sign of dedication and contribution; saying: "You see, these are my crops but my crops are your crops as your wood is
Most of that sounds pretty hippy'ish probably. But I think it's a rapid move forward if we share and live without a currency and guide our lifes with
civil mindsets that we deep in our souls all respect.
Also In my dream I see decisions to be made with logic, reasoning and in a true democratic sense; everybody is allowed to have their say.
In my dream teenage pregnancy nor drugs do not exist, it's a mere example, and difference with a hippy commune. If you made it into the commune you
behold enough intellect to make your own logical, reasonable judgements and therefore you shouldn't even want those things.
