Free Acres was a cooperative single-tax community and Farmingdale was a cooperative agricultural community. According to a guide to the Roosevelt community written by Fernanda Perrone, archivist and director of the special collections department, as part of a “Utopian Communities Project” program, Roosevelt began its existence as a New Deal community of Jewish settlers supported by economic cooperatives in the form of farm operations, a factory, and retail shops. Perrone also wrote a guide to the Modern School collection, which was connected to the anarchist community near Stelton and provided an alternative education encouraging students’ creativity and self-reliance.“The utopian communities’ material gets the most use,” Becker said. “We have oral histories, pictures, archives.”The Farmingdale collection even includes copies of some of the records of the community kept by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Many of the utopian communities were started by people connected to the socialist and communist parties....From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Past_and_present_anarchist_communities
This is a list of past and present anarchist communities.
Anarchists since their start have been involved in a wide variety of social, worker, and liberation struggles. While there are only a few examples of large scale "anarchies" that have come about from anarchist revolutions, there are quite a lot of examples of societies being created through anarchist principles without large anarchist movements. In fact, in recent years, a global growth in "anti-authoritarianism", (that is, anti-state, anti-capitalist), has led to the creation of various social movements that are striving for a world very much like that envisioned by anarchists. As more and more people in various communities decide to organize their world under principles of self-management and mutual aid, cooperation and direct democracy, more and more anti-authoritarian and anarchist systems continue to crop up.
