Just because I have awesome high heels 👠 and I’m amazed of how well they match this European blue I can’t stop wondering why is it so important to debate and to create opportunities for people to connect&bond? Why do they still hold on to the „unity in diversity” fundamental concept? Didn’t they notice that the political extremism, radical thoughts and aggressive behaviors are more and more common?
Did they ever wonder if ordinary people are willing to share their lives and beliefs and habits with complete strangers? Maybe people are just trying to hold on to their traditions & cultural heritage and not wanting to be tramped underfoot by the herds of „outsiders”. Just look at the 🇬🇧British folks who got scared of the eastern savages’ invasion and rushed into voting aye for Brexit. And now it’s becoming a nay?!🤔
Maybe this ridiculous mélange is just not working. Or they didn’t find the right way to put people together…
The appeal of the Romanian Presidency to Social Cohesion could be a good way to awaken a primary need for people – the need to socialize. After all, man is by nature a social animal. Anyone who either cannot lead the common life or is so self-sufficient as not to need to, and therefore does not partake of society, is either a beast or a god. (Aristotle)
Since were not beasts nor gods we must coexist and build relationships. As the paradigm says, the wider the reticular structure, the more powerful the individual is.
The principle of reciprocity, the main feature of the new form of cohesion, according to the OECD, can still be observed today in the traditional forms of social security that are based on a balanced reciprocity: „I help you today, understanding that you’ll help me tomorrow if I will need it”
In other words, according to Durkheim social cohesion is an inter-human process based on interdependence relationships characterized by loyalty and solidarity among members of a group.
So, no matter the purpose, people should accept the others, connect with them, bond, get involved in civic matters, work on their social groups, open themselves to others and just…let it flow because societies are living organisms in continuous movement and transformation.
Me and my shoes made it happen! 😇 We are loyal to each other, we take care of one another, because we have the same goals: a safe & stylish life.
#Cohesion, a common European value
