Crow, Ruth (1989) Discussion notes on community, consumerism and class (C.C.C.). unpublished. (Unpublished)

Abstract

Included are: 1. Meaning of words and phrases: For the word "Community" (see page 17 of C.C.C.) the following is applicable: " We use the word 'community' with the opposite meaning of 'social mix'; its very essence and value is not a grouping of like-minded people but a group of people irrespective of their differences. They may take common action over an issue that affects them, but this does not obliterate the different lifestyles or different standpoints of individuals any more than, for example, job action has such affect... "The essences of neighbourliness and job mateship is the acceptance of others at greeting level, even if you do not approve of their lifestyle, their religion, or their party politics, and even if you do not feel like developing a lasting close relationship with them." 2. Historic context of 'Community, Consumerism and Class' 3. Comparing N.S.W. and Victoria 4. Building on strengths
