“Primary Purpose internet links and other links to Back to Basics
A network of loosely linked Primary Purpose websites, hosted by individuals and groups now exists on the internet. This provides the international communication of Primary Purpose related articles, discussions, the sale of Primary Purpose/ Back to Basics related literature, website donations and links to other organisations. The Internet communication also facilitates the formation of affiliated AA groups; and the arrangement of seminars and conventions with international speakers, which can be arranged independently of local AA intergroups(5). The website network has become a separate “virtual” group conscience to that of AA.
Due to the subtle website links, some individuals and groups may be unaware that they have become part of the alternate group conscience and the implications this has regarding AA Traditions.”
Comment: An extremely useful and well-researched article (although we wouldn't refer to them as AA groups since they are by their nature outside organisations with their own Where to Finds, literature, financing together with their own outside affiliations etc). Unfortunately many of the links which appear in the research are no longer 'live' (a frequent occurrence on the internet). However their new locations may be found with a bit of judicious research
