Reject community-choose life.

What is the definition of a community?.The word is used often by public servants and those in government usually in terms of taking actions to protect a community or to reassure a community.We have community payback ,community centres and  Police Community Support Officers among many others supposedly working for the good of a community.
The word "community" is derived from the Old French communit√© which is derived from the Latin communitas  a broad term for fellowship or organized society.It is defined as a group of interacting people, living in some proximity (i.e., in space, time, or relationship). Community usually refers to a social unit larger than household that shares common values
By this definition I can consider myself to not be a part of the local community because although I live in the same proximity as many others I have very few shared common values with them.My values centre on freedom and personal responsibility whereas the members of the local community seem to have values that centre on German car ownership and watching  crap on television.I consider myself to be a unique individual and have a support system of family and friends who are also unique human beings.I view my purpose in life to bring up my kids as best as I can and put the interests of my family above everything and everyone else.I couldnt give a toss about Mr and Mrs BMW around the corner who cant see beyond their 52 inch telly to realise that they are just cattle to be used and abused by an overbearing state that will keep them in check by convincing them they are part of the community.
I would never take any action to harm others or cause loss to others but equally I would never do anything to assist the community.Freedom means the freedom to live your life peacefully without interference from others and that is what I try to do everyday.I have no need for community I have life.
