Slattery on community


in Politics, Psychology

The human need for community can never be satisfied by a single, all-encompassing group, no matter how rich or pervasive its culture. Indeed, such a group would stifle the deep-seated need for a broad and varied range of communal bonds that overlap and intersect, jostling among themselves for our allegiance. In a word, community demands communities.

Brian Slattery, quoted in: Cairns, Alan. Citizens Plus: Aboriginal Peoples and the Canadian State. (2000).
