    They are going for the open source approach. Looks nice.

    "One Community" sounds to me to be be the natural physical manifestation of The Zeitgeist Movement. I think similar open source communities will spring up first before something larger does like The Venus Project.

    "One Community" are definitely innovators.

    Like WikiHouse, OSLoom, Open CNC, the various 3D printers with ThingiVerse, open source ecology, production,... These are the first wave. Open design to enable small scale local production.

    Second wave I guess is alternative (local) financing. Time banks, zero or negative interest currency, with or without but coin technology. It enables the local production, jobs and economy. Needed for now.

    Third wave is maybe reestablishing largely self sufficient communities with full recycling.

    Fourth wave is the obsolescence of property rights and jobs.

    After this RBE is practically established. As far as I can see at this time, it is the most likely path.

    Peter Joseph and TZM are on the right path, educate people, lots of people, using the mass media and socio networking, because once you have a lot of people waking up to reality, you will get more projects like this popping up everywhere.

    Its a lifelong struggle, I probably wont see it in my lifetime, but I DONT CARE, its 100 times better than anything I'm doing with my life right now. This is coming from a person that most of you would call "Well to do", so I guess being rich doesnt make you a jerk by default.

    Thanks for this; very interesting! Looks like they are quite far ahead with planning (or are they?). It doesn't exactly say how much funding they'll need either.

    Intentional Communities

    I'm finding more and more overlapping, and similarities when it comes to close similar philosophies of various elements of various groups and movements, in relation to an R.B.E.

    Agorism is a libertarian social philosophy that advocates the goal of the bringing about of a society in which all relations between people are voluntary exchanges
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agorism

    Similar though, not the same.

    I find "Intentional Communities" fascinating, and lessons can definitely be learned from their struggles, and successes.

    I'd like to go there and do something to help. They need a reliable electricity system. That's a major challenge.

    I wonder how many people have so many opinions, I do not see a big problem here!

    So it will buy one, knowing that it costs less than 10 euros. Wi-Fi side, the modem / router reached theoretically 450 Mbit / s rates in 802.11n and especially 1300 Mbit / s 802.11ac through the use of three antennas (MIMO).
