One dilemma that faced intentional communities of the 19th century was balancing the communards' desire for their own, secluded place and their drive to educate the rest of society by example. Dancing Rabbit, an experimental intentional community, is taking a decidedly 21st century approach to that problem: though their location in rural Missouri allows them to remain extremely luminal, the Rabbits have embarked on a program of visits and dissemination of information through various media that exposes their message to greater society.

The residents I spoke to think that their system of outreach via the internet and television as well as physical visits is working well for their community, but they have had to make certain compromises to get the publicity they feel they need. Though this will certainly be a challenge for them in the coming years, the way they've controlled their portrayal in the media thus far indicates to me that they'll be able to balance their radicalism with their need to get the mainstream culture to accept their ideas.
