Rebuilding Community

The point of Reslient Communities/Networked Tribes will be to make various communities places worth caring about in the long run.

Getting local policymakers to rewire their perceptions and completely re-orient 50 years worth of devotion to auto-centric development is asking a lot from folks...

Especially given the current state of liberal democracies leaning heavy toward central authority (imagine an Obama Presidency) and the classic republican/libertarian approach of localized authority fading.

It'll be interesting to see if John Robb's coming book takes on the political aspect of his vision. Is this an unfair statement?
John Robb can hardly be for a federalist (the term liberal is simply too nebulous) such as Obama if he'd see his vision of CR through.
