Abbie, I feel your pain. It’s exhausting to do so much as listen to the news these days, much less listen to the whining of illogical people who don’t have a fundamental understanding of how government and politics work and have even less willingness to understand that we’re all seeking the same things, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as some famous document states are our inalienable rights, and that there’s plenty of that to go around if we all compromise. It’s kind of like driving in heavy traffic; we can all get to our destinations safely and on time if we cooperate and are not dicks.
Best of luck to you with the commune. I advise building a tremendous wall to keep out marauders. Personally, I am leaning toward the private underground bunker option in case of socio-political apocalypse or zombie infestation.
