With governments fairly successful in providing all needs for private individuals, where do we start community building efforts? I have made several efforts over 50 years to gather public spirited individuals into the project of community building. Each time I have used the civic organization as the means of gathering. So far my efforts after promising beginnings have failed. I am now 80 and I am willing to consider that the civic organization may not be the best way to gather people for community building.
What is your view?
