A look at intentional communities, with a focus on Twin Oaks in Virginia.
Producer: George King
Uploaded by: George King
This session will explore the importance of supporting the efforts of intentional communities and attempts to create new ones, as well as building on these already existing assets. The talk will explain how networks and federations of intentional communities, specifically anarchist intentional communities, can work to create a system of counterinstitutions through which a mass movement can potentially support itself. It will also look at how intentional communities create an alternative to directly supporting the capitalist system and how a strong network of these communities can ultimately aid in the creation of a "dual power" situation.

This talk was presented at the third Renewing the Anarchist Tradition conference, at the Institute for Social Ecology, August 2001.
