A Definition of Community

There must have been a time when the people looked forward to the erection of a new house in town, or even at the edge of town. By town I mean something akin to a living organism composed of different parts that work together to make the whole greater than the sum of its parts - that is, a community. A new building would be expected to add value and richness to this community, as a new child is eagerly awaited by members of a family. – James Howard Kunstler, "The Geography of Nowhere: The Rise and Decline of America's Man-Made Landscape", page 147
