If you missed the amazing presentation at the Wingnut last night you can listen to this audio version. Thanks again to GPaul and Paxus as well as all the folks from Acorn and Twin Oaks who brought food and knowledge to share.

And a cheat sheet on different egalitarian communes:

We are having our next meeting on the subject on February 16 at 6:30 pm and it will be a potluck.

We are currently looking for people interested in joining/forming an egalitarian community in Richmond using the Wingnut house as a starting point, but with the hope of expanding to include multiple residences and properties.

At the February meeting we will be talking about what an egalitarian community with the Wingnut in Richmond might look like.

This is part of an ongoing series of educational, explorational, and conversational events we are hosting throughout 2015 in our attempts to form this organization and begin living an egalitarian lifestyle. Please come out to talk, network, share ideas, ask questions, and collaborate.

Join the Wingnut Anarchist Collective on Tuesday January 27th for a vegan dinner and presentation on egalitarian, income sharing, secular and democratic communes. We are hosting this event as part of our 2015 process of forming an egalitarian commune which will take over ownership of the Wingnut house. Anyone interested in this idea, whether joining the Wingnut efforts or starting their own, is urged to come out to this event to learn about these communities from some experienced organizers.

GPaul, of Acorn Community and the Point A Project, has just spent most of his summer wandering Europe in search of egalitarian, income-sharing, secular, and democratic communes.  A rare breed in the US, he found them littered about Europe.  Come hear tales of radical trust based economics, what happens when the national culture takes on your commune’s mission, and what exactly an anarchist cyberpunk transnational commune looks like.  A wide variety of stories with comparisons to the American egalitarian communes and attempted distillations of important wisdoms and inspirations.

Like all Wingnut events this will be sober and all ages. We are providing supper due to the lengthy nature of the multimedia presentation.

Our Pals at ACORN Community in Louisa have had a SECOND fire this year, this time damaging their main building. These folks are incredible, do incredible work for agriculture and community. There are so many amazing residents, and they need some support right now. Please, if you are able to, donate to their repair fund. And definitely share this with others who might be willing and able to support them!
