Note: It is my personal rule of thumb that is not a good idea to read comments on a big blog like Treehugger. This has been especially true of late, with swarms of trolls from the right filling comment threads. LIke YouTube and others - I don't read the comments.
Then I read on another blog, Thriving too . . . the antithesis of selfishness, community building.
Really nice article from
"Building strong communities is critical, hard work. I feel it’s one of the most courageous, important things each of us can do every day.
We can speed up the realization of good community building ideas if we live our lives consistent with community priorities. The good news: practically every activity and every moment grants us the opportunity to practice community-minded behavior."
