While the generally accepted myth of American culture has been one
of rugged and isolated individualism and materialistic
accumulation, throughout American history there has been a clear
and parallel tradition which has instead defined the concept of
individualism as reflecting the dignity and empowerment of the
individual within the American community and which has been anti-
materialistic in its focus. The latter tradition has been reflected
in the countless attempts at community building in the United
States, especially the community movements of the 1960s, which were
fueled by the movements for civil rights, women's rights, and the
identity movements of that period. East Wind Community is a
successful example of that fusion of individualism and community
within the context of an intentional community.
