"Community" is not what it means but how we use it as a word. Today. Tomorrow it might fall out of fashion, someone finding it disrespectful and X-ophobic. Then we'll cripple it, toss it out, and find some new word, some other fine, upstanding word to cloak in the emperor's new clothes.
"Community." Use it while you still can, before someone sues you for doing so. And when you're done, "Give back to the community."
The grievance community
David Thompson has written scathingly about the grievance culture. Now Jeff Radall in The Telegraph scoffs at the "grievance community":
Of all the weasel words that have crept into common usage since New Labour swept to power 10 years ago, few grate more acutely than "community", a cornerstone of the Left's warped lexicon.
Used in a certain way, it is particularly popular with social workers, charity organisers, bleeding-heart commentators, human rights lawyers, diversity officers and equal opportunities administrators...
Moaners, whingers, agitators and those with axes to grind, who insist on being portrayed as permanently oppressed or, at the very least, disadvantaged, flourish in identifiable "communities". As an aggregate of human dissatisfaction, a self-perpetuating, self-pitying collective that rejects integration with the rest of us, they are "the grievance community".
