Community: A Definition

 A Fellowship

There is Freedom and there is its opposite, Order

Play combines Freedom and Order.
Examples are Ballet, Football, Dodge-ball, etc.

Ordinary life combines Order and Freedom
Examples are Work, Cooking, etc.

Too much freedom is Anarchy.
Too much Order is Authoritarianism.

Community is Politics which strives to balance Freedom and Order, and never loses sight of that homeostasis: nothing in excess.

We are on our way to excess, and we must develop Community as our goal.
