  • Jul 27 2013: What is the bond that holds a community together?

    I dont know that there is really a bond, if there is I'd probably say, it only shows itself when something threatens a way of life that people have been and got accustomed to. ie a new freeway being made, a new gas works, etc.

      Aug 5 2013: I kind of see where you are coming from. And then I got this image of communities being like molecules and remain joined through molecular bonds until other molecules (communities) or atoms (individuals) interact with them. I don't know enough organic chemistry to safely extend the metaphor and suggest that the common bond to keep communities together would be to share more electrons, especially in pairs...?
