The problem with the passion principle is those with the passion end up doing 
all the work, or the whole place slides to the lowest common denominator. 

Many people who live in cohousing will do work if it is organized and 
distributed fairly, but their passion is in their day job or hobbies, not 
running a cohousing community.
