Communes tend to work best if they are mono-religious/mono-cultural/same world view. Think of the Canadian Hutterian Brethren, and even some of them get pis*ed off and leave acrimoniously, though that is not so common. Just loving "liberty" might not be enough to make a go of it. So much diversity of personalities, goals, etc. I am so sorry, though I think this is the truth. You have to be a natural collectivist.
