In other words, are you saying that you value diversity of opinions, say, unless those opinions don't value diversity? There's a consistency bug in there somewhere. You say that "us versus them" is w...

I find this whole thing very amusing for some reason. I met some folks from a mennonite church who bought a retirement complex, and are remodelling into what they call cohousing. It will have a commo...

The different strokes for different folks argument about cohousing is all well and good, but I think it highly ironic that people look to cohousing to isolate themselves from the people they don't li...

It is a serious mistake to confuse the attitudes of people who say that they want to live in "cohousing" with the attitudes of people who actually end up living in such communities. It took me 4 year...

" Diversity" has become a sacred word among liberals and" tolerating diversity" is an important ethic among them. I think that middle class liberals, who dominate cohousing, feel compelled to put "we...
