Hi Glen, I love this reframe. I am a community developer and firmly believe that connection is the antidote to disorder. For example, when I’m working with a business district which has high vacancies, we see a strong correlation to social disorder in the area. The first thing we do is to find creative ways to ‘animate’ the space. Give it life. Have people connect in the space. The same is likely true in rural communities. If neighbours aren’t connected, how do you overcome crime? Our society has drifted away from connection to a more individualistic one. We are more isolated than ever.
