grantneufeld commented on the word community
Certainly much misused and maligned in corporate and technology circles, ‘community’ remains an extremely critical word in work for constructive social change.
The destruction of meaningful community in “western�? societies is a key component of the social and environmental problems in the world today. The dissociation that is enmeshed in virtually all aspects of the “modern�? industrial/post-industrial society is at the root of our social ailments—which we cannot truly hope to overcome without finding ways to bring people together to form viable, ongoing and sustainable interconnections.
