America’s new political system, Communitarianism, is up and operating in all 50 states, one new community at a time. We’ve talked about these communities before. We’ve watched them go up on the outskirts of all urban areas and even in the middle of our farming lands. Brand new housing, interconnected or very closely clustered single dwellings, nice walkways, not much grass, commons areas, ponds, security details, some with their own post offices and little businesses, and some with their own charter schools.
These communities, also known and searchable as “intentional communities, sustainable communities, and/or Communitarian communities” are also being built in urban areas and near the large, all-purpose super stores and on the major thoroughfares in our country.
Many claim to cater to the needs of elderly citizens and to families with children. Many are appealing in landscaping and by design, but there is much more to these communities than meets the eye – much more.
Let’s say that you’ve seen a house or “condo” that you like in one of these new communities. You decide to buy it and you arrange your financing. But suddenly you realize that you are required to attend an initial meeting with the community’s association. You go to the meeting and are politely told about the “vision” of the community.
You are also told that residency requires so many hours of community service. You are told that all community decisions are based upon community consensus. You are told about the vision for the community’s children and seniors, and you will be politely examined and grilled for your social politics. You may or may not be invited back for the next orientation meeting depending upon whether, by consensus, you will be permitted to live in the community.
Sometimes individual groups or organizations begin the process of communitarian community building, but most often in America, development corporations now specialize in the building of intentional villages. They are often designed with clustered homes facing each other, separated only by a pedestrian walkway, and with all residences in visual site of a Commons House, in hopes of creating a strong, though manipulated sense of community.
The Commons facilities have a community kitchen, dining area, sitting area, playroom, laundry room, and sometimes workshop, library, exercise room, crafts room, and guest rooms. With all the above- mentioned rooms, you come to realize that the residences, themselves, do not need to be large. In fact, they can actually be bedrooms and bathrooms only.
Here’s another interesting aspect of Communitarian communities. They rarely, if ever,” have to resort to voting” because consensus is deemed a far greater objective and political value. Democracy and debate is not favored.
Equally, Communitarians believe that the community is not a source of income for members, but that anything one offers in the way of services is simply that member’s contribution to shared and mandatory community responsibilities.
There are also many laws in place that are specific to intentional communities. Revised Noise Ordinances, Landlord Training Acts, Neighborhood Action Teams and Watch projects, and equally, something called COPS (Community Oriented Policing Service).
COPS creates Neighborhood Action Teams (NATS). NATS enable Communitarian communities to address specific problems. Throughout the 90's, COPS combined forces with Department of Housing and Urban Development, HUD, using Neighborhood Plans to expand a Communitarian-based pilot program called Weed & Seed. Weed & Seed identifies the bad weeds and replaces them with good seeds. HUD distributes Community 2020 data software. Target date for Agenda 21 full implementation? 2020.
The COPS program also has local police train citizen volunteers to issue first time no warning tickets, which come with no legitimate appeal process. These are now common in intentional communities.
Our new communities also have “Neighborhood Plans,” which include a vision for building a designated moral character in intentional villages, and equally the types of businesses, people, and behaviors that will interfere with their visions. These plans include new enforcement procedures that help to create and build a safer “civil society.” These plans identify “problem people” who spread disease, crime, and the villages’ immorality codes, decided upon by consensus, of course.
Add to all this the many, many land use ordinances, most of which were placed on the books 50 years ago (probably in preparation) but were never enforced until now.
Study up, folks. This is what is being built for you and your children. And again, along side of the new villages are the mega-mansions who will house the corporate owners and new government agents who will have ultimate authority over American villagers. Truth hurts, but, pray, it can also set you free.
