Default Joining a Commune

Something I've fantasized about for a while now. I just want to escape the rat race and live in a community of individuals who don't want anything to do with modern society and form a community who value people and not consumerism. Pretty vague but I have no familiarity with the concept.

Does anyone have any insights and possibly advice on exiting society and joining a community that isn't a cult?

Not who I was expecting to start a thread like this but I'm not totally against the idea of something like this either. I've always wondered what life would be like if all modern technology and advances weren't needed. I imagine we'd be a lot happy as a socety. Only issue is that itd be really hard to revert back when we're so cushioned by modern technology and societal standards.

I can imagine you as the guy in the lower left corner.

Bruh I can't stand you humans with your bull**** and your obsession with such bull**** as "society" and "Protestant work ethic" (literally the most oppressive concept of modern human society). I ****ing hate yard work but if I have to do that **** and grow crops to eat or whatever the **** and never have to work for a paycheck another day in my life then it would be like a lifelong vacation.

I honestly would not be opposed to that as I actually enjoy yard work. I sooooo feel like the human race is becoming so used to modern society that as a whole, we are becoming less interesting in actually evolving and more interested in not caring anymore. Plus. The stupidity rate is off the charts. And I work with people.

Mormonism comes with some weird religious/cult like baggage, so that's not an option.

I can understand the desire to cut down and find a way to live a simpler life. I've had the thought myself. Instead of a radical move like joinging a commune, I've just cut down on certain things in order to have a quieter, more grounded life. I don't ever watch TV at all. Don't have any channels. I don't really watch youtube videos much anymore. Most of my internet time is dedicated to music these days. And I try to spend more time reading books and comics (offline in paper form!), either in silence or with a CD on the stereo. My cellphone also has no internet connection, so I only use it for calls and a rare sms. I also rarely play video games these days.

I know it's not quite what you're talking about Batlord, but I have found that just getting rid of some mental chaff and distractions this way makes for a big difference. Whether it's connected or not, I don't know, but I'm also generally less angry, less depressed than I used to be.
