Edit: right now it looks like occupy Wall Street Anarchist crap. But just imagine the Autonomous Commune coming to your home and assigning you a fairness monitor. The fairness monitor assigns 14 homeless people to live with you, because you’ve got more living space than you need, you greedy fascist. Mark Shea will appear and eat your food, you gluttonous Christianist! You’re suddenly subject to the whims of people who’ve never worked in their lives and are likely criminals as well. Sound far fetched? Just you wait!
