: As RD aptly noted, 'small-is-beautiful' intentional communities can not hope to produce medicines (to cite but one example). Therefore intentional communites ARE NOT socialist communities---they are merely low-consumption RATIONALIZATION communities.
SDF: I don't see why a big enough commune couldn't produce its own medicines -- Cuba, after all, they've got doctors...
