Ford Forty Years On

“Ford could die. There are sufficient signs of dying to cause concern. But it is living now and its vital signs could continue and grow stronger. The question facing Ford is whether it will devolve into a set of people living side by side, acting together only in emergencies, sharing only their surfaces, or whether it will continue—and will be encouraged by public policy and private initiatives—to be the community that it is now, 'laying the foundations of a good community life' for its inheritors.”

Final paragraph of “Ford, A Village in the West Highlands of Scotland: A Case Study of Repopulation and Social Change in a Small Community.” – John B. Stephenson, 1981.

Reflecting on John B. Stephenson's words do we think we have laid the foundations for a positive and rich community life?
