Our strength as a community is in our vulnerability as individuals.
Not vulnerability as in being taken advantage of.
Vulnerability as in sharing responsibility for the other.
That’s the very origin of community. It happens when we look beyond our selfish interests. Community lies at the very core of civilization.
We have moved from pre-civilization of individual self-interest to post-civilization of group self-interest. True community resides in between the individual and the group.
We can begin the migration to community by moving to the common ground of compassion.
Justice is compassion raised to an institutional level.
