Very interesting.. Not sure what specific questions I would have but I have always loved the idea of communes and people working together. Have a farm/garden, animals, among other things the land provides. Life just seems to make more sense this way.... you lose all the day to day stresses in the world that slowly kill us. but then you get into the power struggle and a lot of the concept reminds me of socialism.
As you mentioned, it has to be a hard task to accomplish successfully. However, I would love to try it.
