LaVonne Reimer

During this same period, a group of people in The Netherlands and Switzerland decided the protestant reformation did not go far enough. Menno Simons, a Jesuit priest left the priesthood and became the spiritual leader. It was in all respects a decentralized religion. I trace my Mennonite heritage back to each country of origin. I doubt he looked to the many other cultures that are rooted in communitarianism but I don't know for sure. I do know that it takes a core set of "how to be community in the world" beliefs and a lot of hard work to maintain this level of collective living. It also increases the odds that those of us who have innovated in the tech industry will build humanizing and inclusive versions many investors will not understand.
