You're not an anarchist, are you?

Instead of forcing a change in a written rule to everyone, the individuals would gather only to feed discussion and then take individual action to make it happen. It would be up to each one to make a change happen, as no rules would exist to enforce it. No one would represent anyone except themselves. Community would work individually, not in masses. But don't get it wrong. Individually means whatever you think it's right, it is your thinking. It should not be forced as a policy on others. The others will agree with you if that's their conclusion. But no one would be able to force rules.

Being independent (and that is the goal for everyone) will ensure you can live your life without interference from the choices of others. You would be the only person responsible for your survival.

Having no property means you cannot deprive someone from a resource. You can only eat what your body needs. You don't need to accumulate things. If you need to build technology to assist you or experiment with anything new, you'll have to look for the resources yourself. You'll learn a lot more along the way.

That's one rule already. Soon there will be more. And than a committee just to organize the independents.

"Having no property means you cannot deprive someone from a resource."

In short: dying of hunger, cold, and most treatable diseases.

When I say "no one would be able to force rules", it means that no one would obey a rule if someone tried to implement it. We obey rules because we need the rulers to provide things. Become independent and no one can rule you. There would be no reason to cooperate. One individual wouldn't be able to bring fascism if everyone is independent.

About the second part, if no one owns anything, everything is available.

It reminds me of the peasant revolts of the 18th and 19th century Europe. A bunch of guys raping and pillaging "because". Scary shit. Are you sure mob rule is better?
