It is a nice idea, but I don't think I could sign up to be with other people. What happens when someone agrees at the moment, but a few months later, they decided they aren't going to keep up with the rules anymore? .


What do you mean what's going to happen ? there's gonna be a witch burning and you gonna lite the match. :P

You could have independence day everyday.

You can start with anybody who thinks the world is a sphere. :roll:


Hey, have I ever come after anyone on this forum for disagreeing with me on anything? You think I'd be upset because one of you doesnt agree with my opinion? I dont really care what anyone believes. That is up to them. I have no control over that. If I like to discuss conspiracy theories on a conspiracy theory subforum where those thoughts belong, why does it bother those individuals who do not believe in that theory? I am not trying to ram it down your throat. I dont even care what you think. Just I want you to know that just because you think the earth is a certain way and I think differently, it isnt going to change anything for me because your thoughts on the matter don't matter that much to me. Apparently not as much as my thoughts on the matter matter to you.

These are just ideas. Do you think the ancient Greeks were ridiculing everyone with their wisdom? Or maybe they were listening and either pondering or dismissing the subject. Hey, maybe some observation and experimentation would take place. Or do you think that these wise men resorted to ridicule of those men who had other ideas?

If they chose ridicule, do you think they continued with ridicule in a high school type fashion, in which they brought it up at random moments where they weren't relevant to the issue at hand?

Or is this just some strange attempt at humor. I don't find your attempt at humor to be funny at all. But the humor is more for you. It isnt for me, except to ridicule me, and that also is more about you than me, cause it doesnt bother me. It just lets me know that posing a different opinion than the one you believe in will make you start mocking those you disagree with.

And that is fine with me if you want to act that way.
Look for women who automatically want to please you because it pleases them. Any woman who seeks to please her man is a treasure. Even better if you don't have to ask but rather suggest.

You said what if we have different ideas so you are contradicting what you wrote, I am just suggesting a simple solution for the communal Church community that has proven to be an affective means in the past for Christians to use in keeping the fear of God alive in the minds of those striving to follow in pursuit of faith and brotherly love for one another as Jesus intended under the will of Landru of course..

One can find examples of anything, but the Amish and Hasidic Jews live according to their own values and no one bothers them. Texas is a particularly tolerant state, so I think there is little chance of the government bothering us.

That will pose a difficulty kicking them out, especially after they have otherwise established themselves.

The idea isn't to form a commune, just to live close to each other. So kicking people out won't be hard if it is needed.

Are you going to grow your hair long on the sides and wear those funny hats? I like the idea that women can only wear dresses.

There are a few answers. We will choose a place that isn't too far from cities, so people can either commute or live in a city and join us on weekends. My current preferred location is around Seguin, TX which is close to both San Antonio and Austin.

But the real goal here is combine subsistance farming with internet business. Anyone doing subsistance farming in this area will have an extremely low cost of living. Two of us have internet businesses and we are building tools generally useful for building internet businesses (software, SEO, etc.). So we could either hire someone to work in our internet businesses or we could fund new businesses. We would expect most members of the community to eventually become wealthy through internet business while maintaining a very low cost of living with subsistance farming.

Sorry to disappoint you, but no funny hair or funny hats. We only have 3 very simple rules that you can find on our website (see my signature).

Have you looked at what they want to do to this country in the remainder of this century ? I suggest people need to first come up with a governing system that has the potential to leave your group alone if they want. The Amish were established when the republic was somewhat functioning as intended but today trying to do what you want while the elite are carving this country up is plainly a pipe dream.

You may have better luck in another country unless Americans stand up and reestablish a legitimate government here that functions for the people..

You mean like the Amish? Or one of those eco villages? I heard that there are villages of mormons that still practice polygamy in secret. They set up isplated remote communities after polygamy was outlawed, to keep joseph smiths commandments that he claimed to receive from God.

Have you read george orwells "animal farm"? Maybe a new commune would turn out that way. Lol

Is the benedict solution named after Benedict Arnold?

Texas is very interesting, they are making a move to try and breakaway from the federal reserve financial stranglehold. Things could flair up there shortly and hopefully for the better.
