commitment and collective action in post industrial societies

I was listening to this lecture at work today by Charles Heckscher from Rutgers University, talking about how solidarity and community has not gone away, it has however been radically transformed by de-industrialisation (at least in the Global North) and new social technologies.

Well worth watching, I don’t endorse all of his conclusions but he makes some very interesting points I find it had to disagree with.
