What do communitarians think the basis of social unity is?

Amitai Etzioni came to the US in 1958 and rose to the top of the sociology profession. Not only is he the founder of American communitarianism and author of The Limits of Privacy and The Spirit of Community: The Reinvention of American Society, he is also credited with developing the new science of socio-economics.

Etzioni's critics call his brand of communitarianism "fascist." Etzioni has never responded to the American social scientists who critisized him during his 1995 presidency of the American Sociological Association, but his position as the former ASA president is touted frequently during his lecture tours (without any reference whatsoever to the controversy surrounding his Libertarian-Fabian-communitarian propaganda). According to a well-placed Anti-Communitarian League source, campus rumor has it that the "more moral" Dr. Etzioni is not well liked by his students nor by his academic associates at George Washington University.

What about the communitarian challenge that self-determination can only be nurtured in a certain type of society-the so-called social thesis?

The easiness in changing ideas makes the electorate more volatile and leads to political and institutional intability.
Problem: the Four Mobilities are expression of liberty from a liberal point of view, but they produce a sense of loss and solitude that can be removed just being part of a community.

Misrepresentation of Reality
The liberal theory of justice (Rawls) is too abstract and far away from concrete real life
Liberal Theory radically misrepresents real life -We are really creatures of community
everyone is the inventor of his own life BUT there are no valid criteria guiding the invention
In the liberal society we are strangers to one another BUT each member of each group is born with parents having relatives and friends, thus connections

Hence, it is false to suggest that all our connections are mere «market friendships», voluntarist and self-interested
Individuals, by nature, are caught up in patterns of relationships
The quality of being caught up makes them people of a certain sort
Howerver they can be different by behaving in a distinctive way whithin the pattern

The deep structure even of the liberal society is in fact communitarian -We are really at the bottom creatures of community
Liberals distort this reality and limit our understanding of habits
The liberal ideology of separation brings deprivation and the inability to form cohesive solidarities

The burden of the second critic
the problem with the second critique
It does not adress the disjunction between communal experience and liberal ideology and between social bondedness and political isolation
This critique is certaintly true but of uncertain significance

The second critique holds that we are situated selves -THE TRUTH OF THE SECOND CRITIQUE
But, if we really are situated selves, then our situation is largerly captured by the liberal language of individual rights (voluntary association, pluralism, toleration, separation,privacy, free speech…)
Does it make any sense then to argue that Liberalism prevents us from understanding or mantaining the ties binding us together?

According to Walzer, it makes some sense because Liberalism is a strange doctrine, continually undercutting itself.
Much of liberal political theory (from Locke to Rawls) is an effort to fix and stabilize the doctrine in order to end the endlessness of liberal liberation


Whatever the extent of the Four Mobilities, they do not seem to move us so far apart that we can no longer talk with one another
Example: We often disagree but we disagree in mutually comprehensible ways (ex philosophical controversies are not a mark of social incoherence)
Communitarian criticism of Liberalism suggests 2 different and mutually inconsistent arguments.

On the one hand, Etzioni is firm in his stand against American's private ownership of guns and claims the Second Amendment was written with a "communitarian clause" that calls for community militias and not "individual gunslingers." Etzioni refuses to answer his critics from the American "right," those individual gunslinger advocates who challenge his communitarian gun ownership ideology. Etzioni has written thousands of words on the "need" for national disarmament and founded his own international peace organization. This very exceptional peaceful man started his adult life as a hard-core Fabian socialist, as a communist-kibbutz raised Zionist who became a trained revolutionary soldier fighting with the ferocious David Ben Gurion against the British and the Arabs in 1946. In 1947 he was an Israeli soldier in the Arab War, he supports Bush Jr's War on Iraq, he endorses the highly controversial Project for A New American Century, and he endorses the need for a National ID Card to make America a safer place from (anti-Israeli) terrorists.

Each of the 2 critiques is partly right but they cannot both be true at the same time

Walzer's conclusion
Liberalism is a self-subverting doctrine and tends towards instability and disassociation
Hence, it requires periodic communitarian correction
a selective reinforcement of liberal values and its internal associative capacities
or a pursuit of the intimations of community within them
However this reinforcement is only TEMPORARY- Communitarianism as a recurrent intellectual fashion

All of us who blog at this site are, broadly speaking, libertarians

The Hegelian dialectic presupposes the factual basis for the theory of social evolutionary principles, which coincidentally backed up Marx. Marx's Darwinian theory of the "social evolution of the species," (even though it has been used for a century to create a vast new scientific community, including eugenics and socio-economics), does not adhere to the basis for all good scientific research, and appears to exist mainly to advance itself, and all its sub-socio-scientific arms, as the more moral human science. To the ACL this means the entire basis for the communitarian solution is based on a false premise, because there is no FACTUAL basis that "social evolution of the species" exists, based as it is only on Darwinian and Marxist ideology of man's "natural" evolution towards a British version of utopia.

The London-Marxist platform in 1847 was "to abolish private property." The American Revolution was based in private property rights. Marxist societies confiscate wealth and promise to "re-distribute it equally." America promised everyone they could keep and control what was the product of their own labor. Modern Marxist adherents openly claim they will "rebuild the world," and they train activist "change agents" to openly support overthrowing the legitimate governments of the world. Since their inception, Marxist agent provocateurs can be linked to every anarchist assassination and student uprising that caused chaos to the established European civilization throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. Modern Americans have succumbed to the conspiracy theory label and will only listen to what the propaganda machines tell them. Now our people don't believe anyone other than maybe the Arab world "hates our freedom." Most modern Americans will never know what went wrong with their "great experiment in democracy."

While the Marxist-communitarian argument has not provided a shred of evidence to prove their utopian vision, and their synthesis does not match their own projected conclusions of world justice, we are convinced their argument does in fact substantiate our conclusion, that the entire philosophical dialectical argument is nothing but a brilliant ruse. We used to call it "a cheap parlor trick" until a responder to this page wondered how we could call it "cheap" when it's been so successful. And he was right. The dialectical arguments for human rights, social equity, and world peace and justice are a perfectly designed diversion in the defeated British Empire's Hegelian-Fabian-Metaphysical-Theosophical Monopoly game. It's the most successful con job in the history of the modern world. (For a well presented Christian overview of the con, see American Babylon: Part Five-the Triumph of the Merchants by Peter Goodgame.)

The communitarian synthesis is the final silent move in a well-designed, quietly implemented plot to re-make the world into colonies. To us it doesn't matter if there is some form of ancient religion that propels the plotters, nor does it really matter if it turns out they're aliens (as some suggest). The bottom line is the Hegelian dialectic sets up the scene for state intervention, confiscation, and redistribution in the U.S., and this is against our ENTIRE constitutional based society. The Hegelian dialectic is not a conspiracy theory because the Conspiracy Theory is a fraud. We've all been duped by global elitists who plan to take totalitarian control of all nation's people, property, and produce. Communitarian Plans exist in every corner of the world, and nobody at the local level will explain why there's no national legal avenue to withdraw from the U.N.'s "community" development plans.
