The pacifist Anabaptist Hutterites are one of the most successful models for communal living, despite a long history of persecution.

Their colonies range throughout the American and Canadian northwest, their culture preserved through separation from mainstream society, economic self-sufficiency and value of the spiritual and internal over the worldly and external.

No two Hutterite communities are the same, but – while often derided as backward – they overall report high rates of health, happiness, and life expectancy. In close-knit communities of under 200 people, they experience less of the loneliness and isolation prevalent in the modern world and have not recorded a single murder in their 500-year history.

Their society isn’t perfect, but we could learn much from the Hutterites, such as their strong social bonds and spiritual connection to the natural world.
