At risk of being redundant, I assert that the greatest impact is economic to a forming community requiring alignment with any ideology: the source of members is restricted; however, with sufficient members, such as with the Mennonites or Bretheren (LaVerne, CA), this is a not a concern or a factor. But, Per McCamant & Durrett, the idealogical requirement had a significant ecomonic impact on the Danish community of Overdrevet (p.63), probably because they had no group already formed: they had to recruit from a reduced market. The Overdrevet experience seems, to me, to indicate that a strong ideological "mood," could create an intensity which works counter to creating consensus, while a formal idealogy, such as the with the Mennonites, could create a framework for community formation (given that recruitment was not a problem). Have Fun.
