*“Community” is derived from the Anglo-Norman and Middle French communité,
meaning, primarily, “joint ownership.” A community, at least in theory, is
a site of collective decision-making; it is maintained by the people who
built it, for their own benefit. It monitors itself and invests in its own
health. It rewards participation with a real stake in the common good. It’s
no wonder, then, that community tends to strike us as a positive thing; the
Welsh Marxist theorist Raymond Williams once wrote that the word’s most
salient attribute was that it “seems never to be used unfavorably.” *
I am the chimera of a data-driven society,
where the role of the human subject
is practically irrelevant.
