A continuum of social models

John Tropea - Delicious Community

Beyond the community is the organization, a very strongly oriented group of people, often with defined objectives, budgets and even some level of hierarchy as to how they should work together. Groups like the Apaches of North America (circa 1800s); Alcoholics Anonymous, a peer-group organization, etc. However, they also go the next step along where there is an organizing principle or ideology, and there are local leaders on a decentralized basis.
