One way in and out, way over populated, no place is out of sight of a watch tower, walls within walls within walls. Sure doesn’t sound like freedom to me.

This has all been done before. Look at the castle towns of Europe. We do have thousands of “gated communities.” It was the same idea in Ireland with their shelter towers (Irish: túrtheach (singular), túrthithe (plural)).

They do not work well and can be destroyed by seige and from the air.But they sure can take a lot of the enemy with them, making the enemy pay big time.A few can even prevail, a very few according to history.

My idea was not really to build a HOA with a fotress around it. I thought if everyone had 25-50 acres each abutting each other you would have a massive piece of land of like minded neighbors which can develope a defensive plan over the whole “subdivision”. So they would have like 150,000 acres to use. It could be the size of a small military base. This would be significantly harder to attack and easier to defend, than this “castle”.

I’m really sorry to say this, but Jim Jones comes to mind when I read their homeowners’ association rules.

Additionally, where is the farming? Where’s the food going to be grown? You have to figure this is a SHTF community...looks to try to be self sustaining...but no farms?

Oh, that’s right, the serfs who grown the food will live outside the walls.

It’s nice to see that someone is looking for like-minded folks, but it looks a little Big Brother But Bring Your Own Guns to me.
