Small-Scale Utopian Societies

How to endure anarchy in a completly decentralized society through self-motivation?

The true social problem in an isolated, small-scale society is to endure it, to maintain the well-being and the trust between it's members.

Without law enforcement, only respect and education reign supreme.

It's begining to seem ever more plausible to establish a scenario where society is in its utmost stressful state, where there is a complete lack of faith in the government, where there is a complete waste of resources and no sustainable management to compensate for the everlasting, always exponential consumerism and wastefulness.

What if we broke this cycle with a new paradigm?

Out of the current democratic systems that rule the western civilizations, none seem to escape the clutches of corporate greed and the ever increasing weight of the influence of the market's instability.

So we are searching for a governing model that will not base itself on the same premisses of the current ones. We do not seek a centralized industry and governing system.
Which means we need to develop a new human network, made possible by the new social-tecnological tools available, a grid of relationships which can adapt to the smaller-scale needs of the populous, without the need of international agents to interfere with people's everyday life.

We are talking about small clusters of participatory members of a decentralized society, using the highest technologies available to sustain them in the smallest industry possible, scaled to their needs.

Let's sketch an utopian village, where there are no laws and no need for them.
Trust shall be the law, and respect shall be the currency.
You could call it a peaceful anarchy.

We propose an experiment. To prove if an all-around self-sustainable society with no monetary system, no law enforcement and no centralized government or industry actually works.
Psicological studies indicate that people learn better through examples.
Why not make an example-society?
How will the test of time prove this model wrong?
And if it is flawed, does it have a simple set of solutions, or are educated masses and mutual respect needed for this standard of living too irrealistic for the real world?

Time is the ultimate judge of this all, but we have to be smarter than time, we have to think of ways of assuring the infrastructures and the social fabric of this all could actually work to assure the members of these clusters worked together and not against the common goals.
This is our problem, one we shall solve with the relashionships between public and private spaces, with the relashion between nature's setting and the human psyche and the building of a shelter that can be home to all of this.
