Here are some pictures of some monasteries in America today. Sadly, Christianity has not understood that this not how one should live. They are right in living closely together in a large building and having acres of land around them and eating communally. Christians should combine the communal aspects of monasteries with the individualistic homes that the majority of Christians live in. Mankind should live in intimate communities and eat communally. No one should be celibate or wear strange and boring uniforms. Their economics should be capitalism, not socialism.
