To what extent do you think a loss of connection to community is responsible for the problem in the UK at the moment?
I have been watching the trouble in the UK and it occurred to me that part of the problem relates to our individual disconnectedness from our local communities.
When I was a child, neighbourhood women looked after me when my mother couldn’t. People knew each other, stopped to have a cup of tea with each other or dropped in to say hello. Now, I don’t know my neighbours.
Do you think this is at least in part responsible for the way these people are behaving?
