Social Communities: The vehicle for cooperation

Communities are social entities integrated by people who share a differentiated entity that allows them to grow based on feeling valued and belonging to a superior group.

The building of a community requires having a superior ethics in some field, which implies centrally a differentiated functionality, a strict moral code, according to what is necessary to be done, and an adequate ideology that sustains the group.

All communities belong to a visible segment that makes them recognizable by the environment. Sects are extreme communities that foster a functionality that belongs to a parallel world.

Those who lead a community need to share its ethics. Their core responsibility is to expand it because they are convinced of the values they are adding to the environment.

The origin of Free Masons and the Rotary Club was being a community that belonged to the segment of “unions”.

Religious and political communities do not pertain to any of these categories although they are homologous.

When business communities exist, they belong to the Institutional or Avant-Garde segments. The first business community built by us was installed in Diners in 1981.

Overcoming Scarcity sustains the strategy for growth

The concept of economic growth, at an operational level, implies the need to integrate a superior technology, monetary circulation, competitiveness and the overcoming scarcity.

Overcoming scarcity is what sustains the minimum strategy for growth. It implies the integration of social capital with competitiveness and cooperation in order to achieve this goal.

That is why it can be said that growth is not a regional matter, it is a national or institutional matter.

Competitiveness and cooperation are concepts that can be easily understood. That is why we would like to clarify the meaning of social capital defining it as the integration of a communitarian identity with a context that makes people feel valued and gives them a sense of superiority.

Without a strong sense of identity there is no possibility to generate social capital which is basic for growth. That is why when crises, at an institutional or social level, are just palliated and not cured, there can be no sense of superiority which is necessary to build social capital to generate growth.

Reactivation can be generated by managing monetary circulation, but structural growth requires having a minimum strategy which implies social capital, competitiveness and cooperation.

NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in complexity science research and became the major research organization in the world in the field of human adaptive systems. More than 4,200 unicist ontological researches were developed since 1976 until December 2011 in the field of individual, institutional and social evolution. They included the development of the unicist ontogenetic maps (DNA) of institutions.
