Who Understands Communities? The Kids.

The 18-29 year olds are different. 'The Empathic Civilization': The Young Pioneers Of The Empathic Generation.
And I think it bodes pretty well for the future of emerging
international communities of all kinds -- technical, scientific,
political, environmental, medical, etc. The article seems focused on
American and/or Western people, but I wonder what this
generation of kids is like in other parts of the world since culture so
significantly affects opinion and action. Regardless. If you want to learn about community you need to get around people who do community. Kids. Oh, and by the way, for those above 40 or so, you don't lead in this situation. You follow. Then after you participate and contribute and earn your way you can lead in your area. But remember, everyone leads and everyone follows. That's what I like about communities. Leaders aren't special and opportunity isn't restricted. The kids seem to know that. Why don't we?
