The Importance of Community

“Community plays an important role in the way our lives unfold, and is the living face of a shared moral order. All of which makes the breakdown of community deeply problematic at both a personal and societal level. Once we feel that we are really alone and cannot call on neighbours for help, then we are part of a new social poverty, which can be demoralising and debilitating.”
