Thanks for this article. You are correct; individualism is not where it's at. Looking at nature, there is no creature or plant on earth that survives in isolation. I am reminded of the incident a few years ago when power was disrupted all over the north-eastern US; the most populated region of North America. How interesting it was so see on the news New Yorkers stopping and talking to each other, and they seemed happy doing it! Similarly after 9/11 in Montreal... drivers were for a couple of days strangely courteous. It was noticeable to me, anyway. But having visited NL after a lengthy absence just a few days before Igor, I was astounded by the sense of community in NL even when times are normal. It was so stunning we're looking to move back! I never knew how much I missed the land, sea, and people of Newfoundland.
