  1. Thanks for introducing me to the word “solidarity” in a new context. I am that individualistic consumer mentioned in this article. Having lived in a society with almost no solidarity, the word doesn’t yet invoke powerful feelings of egalitarianism and altruism. Certain kinds of music do that, but so far the word invokes in me a heavy burdensome feeling in my heart which I suspect is a product of the negative stereotyping of communism and unionism in my culture that I have been indoctrinated with. I hope solidarity will take on new meanings as resilient community life becomes valued again.
