What is a community? What is it that creates ‘community’ there is a clear difficulty in definition. What is the connection between an Amish community and an online community of photographers or between a village or a city.

  • Can a community be built on a variety of conflicting viewpoints or must there be some unifying undertow?
  • What is the community that would help unify people looking to help the next generation?
  • What philosophy could unify a thousand opinions on the best actions to take?
Questions that need consideration;
  1. What are we trying to achieve?
  2. Why is it important?
  3. Who will become members?
  4. Where will the community exist?
  5. How will it be organized or administrated?
In fact the question should be distilled further to the following; who, what, where, when, why and how.
