Which countries/cultures have the most sense of community?
When I picture a culture that has a strong sense of community, I imagine streets where lots of kids are out playing, parents are out washing their cars or chatting, there are always people hanging around and passing through, and there are lots of little local shops all around, as well as street vendors or markets. The downside is that there's probably a lot of gossip going on.

Cultures that are naturally more reserved tend to have less sense of community. People are cordial but they keep themselves to themselves and only come together in a crisis (i.e. Britain during WW2). And whatever sense of community there might be, it usually revolves around local business rather than family.

The more homogeneous (at least culturally) a country is, the more likely they are to have it.

A country's level of poverty/wealth may well affect it. And climate. Urban design/layout and architecture and closeness to nature most probably affects it. I would imagine that a city where most people live in apartments are less sociable than those where most people live in houses.


Those are my thoughts. So which countries/cultures/cities have the most sense of community, in the purest sense?

I'm thinking Italy, most Latin American countries, and the Philippines.

That's not how we do things in Russia, comrade.

Ukraine is full of west worshiping and self hating girls, I don't see any real comradeship at all, Latin Countries,Italy,Spain and certain African nations have a very strong sense of community and social circle plays a massive role in their lives.

RE: Which countries/cultures have the most sense of community?
Indian culture. UK born and raised Indian now living in Los Angeles here.

When I visit my ancestral village in Punjab during the day, everybody's front door is open and people just wander in and out of each other's house. I'm supposed to treat my brother's kid's like my own. If I have relatives visiting me, they can stay at my place.

I grew up in a small town in UK and most of my relatives lived walking distance from me. We visited each other's houses all the time, and to this day I visit as many of them as I can when I'm in UK. I have a couple of brothers and I am welcome to stay with them when I'm in UK.

Family connections also extend globally. When I moved to the US, a distant relative who has the same great grandmother as me, who I've only met once before helped me with apartment hunting in Los Angeles.

I know most of my cousins even though they live as far apart as USA, India, UK, Germany and Italy.

When I visit my uncle's house in northern California, I am supposed to treat it as my house. When I want to visit and come and stay for a few days I don't need to ask if I can stay. All they need to know is when I'm arriving.

I have been to Italy and I remember in the town my cousin lived in, I noticed families with kids getting ice creams and walking around late in the evening. In the UK families can't go out in most city centres late in the evening, there's a lot of drunks and often violent incidents.

I grew up around a lot of Italians and I noticed a lot of similarities with Indians when it comes to families.

The more community going on aka in a sense tribalism the more xenophobic they are since youll always be seen as the foreigner.

Even if you goto your parents home country youll still have some of that outsider vibe to you.
Moving to a small town in your own country and being known to the community is the best option instead of going half way around the world hoping locals accept you as one of their own

Italy? How did you came up with it?

I read many articles, polls, etc., about what is bad in Italy and "weak sense of community" is usually named reason number one or two in Italian polls. It might be different in less urbanized areas such as northern Veneto and South Tyrol, but I can assure you that in Rome or Milan the sense of community is almost zero.

A country where the the sense of community is strong is Switzerland, except perhaps in Zürich and Geneva.

I haven't been to Italy but whenever I look at photos of some cities it looks very homely.

As for Latin America, it's the same. Watch some videos or look at photos. You can sense it.

By the way I'm talking about warmth and sociability, people talking to each other rather than keeping to themselves.

That's not how we do things in Russia, comrade.

I don't think Austin Summers was that bad, but it seems like Latin America is declining as much as other countries?

I can cosign on Italy, but in the smaller towns/villages. Bigger cities not so much.

Albanians as a whole. Whether in Kosovo, Albania, or the diaspora in Europe and the US. They stick together like glue. They are the only ones who speak that language and there is no other language that is related to theirs. So on that alone they are isolated and to themselves. They also share a bloody history. Makes for a bond between them that I've seen in very few other cultures that I've been exposed to first hand.

Interesting. What about albanians in Sicily? I've heard that there are some in the south. Do you know anything about them?

Latin American countries by far.

I was amazed at the hospitality the Mexican people had for the migrants in the caravan. Politics aside, Mexico being a third world country, did with what they could in terms of feeding the giant masses walking through Mexico which was a sight to see.


Some people also give America a bad rap though. I feel that there is no more compassionate or hospitable country than the U.S. The American people are always doing activities, activism, and things for their community.

I've been to Italy quite a few times and would say there is a strong sense of community, especially in the smaller towns and villages.

When I was in Sardinia (the most beautiful island on earth, I might add), it was very common to see families comprising three generations sat down for dinner, out at the beach, in the parks etc. I think part of the reason for this is the lack of economic opportunities in the area - the cost of living is relatively low and there are virtually no skilled jobs available on the island, even in Cagliari (the island's capital), so there is little incentive to emigrate when people have strong familial ties.

...Sardinia...the cost of living is relatively low

Interesting that you say that. I'm sure I saw Cagliari's cost of living as being very high on Numbeo some time ago. I just tried looking it up now and it didn't seem as high as when I first checked it. But still, it doesn't seem that low to me : https://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/in...rrency=USD

That's not how we do things in Russia, comrade.
