Real community will never return

Posted on July 18, 2009


Zygmunt Bauman (2002) writes about Community – as a mutual sharing relation. And Ulrich Beck writes about the emergence of extreme individualism (1983 – 2002). From a modern society viewpoint, it seems as if the sharing community will never emerge again. With the extreme individualism our mindset have moved from securing our basic needs to more personal developing related efforts. Sharing community is more related securing the basic needs. And traditional societies.

But what happens to this extreme individualism when each individual acknowledge that he or she can not make sense or navigate alone?

I do not know either. But the massive connectedness and hypercomplex world may lead to this acknowledgement.

This is where Collaborative Man can make sense as a tool for human navigation.
