  •  For another colonial example (0+ / 0-)

    I like the example of colonial schools.  In almost every place people gathered in early America, you could be sure they would build two things - a church and a school.  The teacher was paid by goods produced by the community.  

    I think you may be correct about the low time from 1880 to 1930, but the Populist Party certainly provided a counter-example during that time - for many agrarian communities, it was a high mark of cooperation.
