This is the week for intentional communities, american Utopias:
I am so impressed with The Citadel, a new planned community proposed for Idaho. It is designed to accommodate up to seven thousand families in a community modeled after a quaint German fortress town Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Regular readers will know that I believe that we have to " learn from those who designed communities before there was oil, about how to live after oil", and this model is positively medieval.
All you need is an AR-15 and a thousand rounds of ammo and you're good to go.
