Who is my neighbor?: My role in society

True to my nature, a comment in a fellow blogger’s post, sent me running for the dictionary. The blogger is frustrated with society encouraging us to be hide our depression; with making it hard to ask for help. So I asked myself what is the function of society? Even at our most basic every culture has had some semblance of social order.

Literally the Latin origin means “companion”.

Wow, how different that word looks from what I perceive as society. How would our homes, our neighborhoods, our work places, etc. look if we viewed ourselves as companions? I would love to hear your thoughts.
