    I worked with a guy who started a commune in the sixties. At the year 2000 he still lived there… He was a bit grouchy but his children were about the most well-adjusted I’d ever met.

    I think if we are going to consider a positive message for the future of climate change it will be through anecdotal narratives. The broad strokes of predictions so far are not good.

    I wouldn’t call Hobbits ‘hippies’.. lax hair trends aside.

    “Eleutheria” (Ελευθερία) is the Greek word for “freedom”

    Actually, Seth, sex cults are not “fun”, they are horrible, violent, exploitative groups. Not funny.

    I always enjoy how when Seth spotlights a book, it LOOKS like it has been well-read.

    Why did she not say that Eleuthera, is a Greek name for a woman meaning freedom, why?

    At first I was like, wow, Katja Herbers wrote a book AND is looking really good! Allegra could probably write a movie and star in it 🙂

    I lived in 3 hippie communes. Eastwind in Missouri and Twin Oaks and Acorn in Virginia.

    I’m dying to know if she went to or researched my hippie elementary school where they taught us to solder and make star maps and find fossils.
    They definitely aimed for a utopian school, though they definitely had problems policing bullies and that one teacher with a god complex.
