Member Papers on Person to Community Relationships

Effective January 1, 2017, at this link are found papers that come under the general heading: How should the self relate to humanity? There is a tendency for individuals to turn a person to person relationship into a property relationship.  A mother does not easily see her relationship with her child as a relationship with a community; but should she harm that child she will quickly find it is.  Through principles found within social contract theories, even two individuals meeting alone in an isolated area form a de facto community relationship.  For formal communities, one’s identity is usually defined by what one contributes to that community.  Out of this question come the ethological rules of decorum, morality, lawfulness, and ethics.
