Wikipedia Definition of Kibbutz:
Wiki Page Kibbutz
A kibbutz (Hebrew: קִבּוּץ / קיבוץ, lit. "gathering, clustering"; plural kibbutzim) is a collective community in Israel that was
traditionally based on agriculture. The first kibbutz, established in 1909, was Degania. Today, farming has been partly supplanted by other
economic branches, including industrial plants and high-tech enterprises. Kibbutzim began as utopian communities, a combination of socialism and
Zionism. In recent decades, some kibbutzim have been privatized and changes have been made in the communal lifestyle. A member of a kibbutz is called
a kibbutznik (Hebrew: קִבּוּצְנִיק).
In 2010, there were 270 kibbutzim in Israel. Their factories and farms account for 9% of Israel’s industrial output, worth US$8 billion, and 40% of
its agricultural output, worth over $1.7 billion. Some Kibbutzes had also developed substantial high-tech and military industries. For example, in
2010, Kibbutz Sasa, containing some 200 members, generated $850 million in annual revenue from its military-plastics industry.
IF America is going to collapse, to survive the coming collapse, or at least weather the economic storms and diversify our economy against various
threats, we should put into place our own versions of the Kibbutz, minus the Zionism.
It is basically a Commune, with various experts, craftsmen, farmers, blacksmiths, doctors, scientists with R&D departments, manufacturers, and so on,
all living on the same acreage, working, living, raising children, education, all growing together.
If we were to establish such economic, ideological equality, and manufacturer based communes, it would help to decentralize the
corporate/greed/selfish based model of free-market-inevitable-corrupt-cronism, and help to diversify this country to be able to handle whatever comes
