MiddleTennessee is the best state to start a commune in my opinion. We get all four seasons here in pretty much equal amounts. PLEASANT WINTERS. The country is beautiful. nice, green, rolling hills and great soil for growing. The land is also very cheap and its a liberal state. Law enforcement isnt rough at all and people tend to keep to themselves and mind their own business. This is a great state to settle down I think it would be great if about 20 or so families all put in an equal amount of money and bought a nice big peice of land in the highland rim area. Grundy County, TN would be a great place. All we would need is about 20 acres. It would be really easy and inexpensive to build our own shelters from the land. I already have the experience in this field and all the tools necessary. We wouldnt really need any form of government since there wouldnt be so many of us. It would be good if we had someone with experience in farming. It would be smart for about five of us to have simple jobs at places like mcdonalds, wal mart, etc. for a little extra income. A percentage of the money would definately have to go into a winter/emergency fund. the rest of us could tend to the crops. we could rotate the responsibilities from year to year or season to season. We could also have some sort of internet business centered at the community for a liitle more cash. All of us could come and go as we please. afterall it is not so hard to mantain such a simple peice of property. but it will take teamwork and some effort to set it all up. cooperation is key so is my idea plausible? did I miss anything?
