The Last Great California Hippie Commune is still going Strong

quote [ They came from the mountains, and kept to themselves. If you were lucky, you might have seen them frolicking in the hills under the glow of the buttery, golden hour sunshine that California does so well. Collectively, they were known as “The Brotherhood of the Sun,” and in the 1970s, they emerged as one of the most successful communes in US history. In a manner of speaking, that is, because if we’ve learned anything from our past investigations into communes and cults, it’s that these sort of things have an expiration date. ]

I'd like to live on a commune and
People can call me a hippie

These guys are right in my neck of the woods. I've even interacted with them professionally. When my father told me they were a commune I was blown away. It should be noted that the guns weren't illegal and the BS that the government got up to investigate the commune meant the judge more or less threw out all the charges.
