Thank you You have hit upon what I believe is THE basic problem of civilization; the conflict between the individual and the group. The 'solution' is all around us: war, police and the courts. :-) Of course perhaps you are talking about a different level of complexity and scale of organization: 10 to 30 families living in proximity; but is that not simply a very small village? I would simply like to remind us that the problems of one small group are the same problems faced by the larger society. Call it CoHousing: it's still politics. So, you might want to consider the successful and pro-evolutionary ways in which conflicts are resolved by the larger society. Cheers, David
