Main stream American middle class culture is probably the most difficult culture on earth to marry with cohousing. Is there a cohousing community out there that, other than setting up the group mechancis of cohousing, actually operates on or has created a counter-or cohousing culture to replace the main stream middle class American culture many members come in with and continue to try to hold on to. In other words, has any group tried, objectively and pragmatically, to analyze and identify its values, ethics, morals, mores, customs, etiquette, folkways, formalities,lifestyles, etc., find a way to eliminate from people's lives/the community the interpersonal distance/coolness, personal greed and materialism, environmental distructiveness and poor diets, abusive childrearing practices, etc. of middle class America and replace them with a culture more in tune with community or village living still preserving Western democratic principals? If so, can you discribe what you have created and how you did it? --------------------------------- Never miss an email again! Yahoo! Toolbar alerts you the instant new Mail arrives. Check it out.
