One Response to “What Rural America Can Teach Us about Civil Society”

  1. Emily Edmonds

    Great, great article – and amazing work by RPA.
    The concentration of local power in most rural communities is exactly the love-hate relationship described here: we need stability more so than urban areas, because we are operating from a scarcity perspective, and at the same time scarcity limits the decision-making positions to a smaller number with fewer access points for those who aren’t financially advantaged. Such a great post and great work, and really important for securing stronger rural local governments in particular.
