“Laird Schaub, executive secretary of the Foundation for Intentional Community, said there’s been a boomlet in intentional living since about 2005. […]

People “say there has been more alienation and fragmentation, more divisiveness and tension, less sense of neighborliness than when they grew up,” he said. “The reason [the homes] are important is because in intentional communities we are learning about or recovering the ability to get along with one another and solve problems.”
