Description:
A commune is an intentional community of people living together, sharing common interests, property, possessions, resources, and, in the more radical communes, work and income. In addition to the communal economy, consensus decision-making, non-hierarchical structures and ecological living have become important for many communes. Andrew Jacobs of The New York Times wrote that, contrary to popular misconceptions, "most communes of the '90s are not free-love refuges for flower children, but well-ordered, financially solvent cooperatives where pragmatics, not psychedelics, rule the day."

Today most people are seeking to create a new type of community where the housing is more affordable and the people who are members are already known to each other. People who create and willingly reside in the communities are seeking a return to a better way of life. There are many contemporary intentional communities all over the world, a list of which can be found at the Fellowship for Intentional Community.
