Posting article on difference between communities and communitas

I think this article should be repeated here so the distinction between the meaning of communities and communitas is known.

There is a need state the difference between communities and communitas.

Communities is a broad classification and includes almost any gathering of people for whatever purpose.

Communitas is a restricted grouping and only applies where there is a felt sense of close connection. In communitas the individual willing surrenders will to a group of individuals. A recent clear example is the video and television series, A Band Of Brothers. In that series Easy Company moves into that magic space called communitas. The individual members of Easy Company willingly surrendered their will to a group called Easy Company. They were bound together by the knowledge they were prepared to die for each other. Whatever it took to keep their buddies alive was their commitment.
