Diverse Societies <Idea>
It would be interesting to create several alternative types and styles of communities. The key would be to encourage experimentation so that there would be many different types. People could chose which kind they wanted to live in.
The communities could have their own belief systems, economic systems (internal anyway), social systems, etc. Communities that were successful would grow and multiply and ones that weren't would self destruct or change. You would also be able to learn about what works in the successful communities. There would be a size limit for the community before it would have to split.
The diversity would allow for exploration of many different ways to live and find the best ones. It would also allow people to chose the ways of life that most appeal to them.
How this could work in our current political structure is unknown, however communities like the Amish have demonstrated what might be possible.
