Steven Min Rough Draft—Paper#3 355:101:LV 10/22/2009 A Well-Oiled Machine A community is a social group of any size that interacts among each other and shares a common interest. A government is commonly thought of as an essential part of a community because it serves a crucial element that brings authority to communities by enforcing rules, laws, and regulations. However, many communities thrive without a government and its restrictions. In “The Myth of the Ant Queen,” Steven Johnson explains ant colonies and the city of Manchester as examples of self-regulated communities. While Henry Jenkins describes online communities formed by Harry Potter fan fiction fans in “Why Heather Can Write: Media Literacy and the Harry Potter Wars.” Both authors present completely different communities, however they are similar because they are all ungoverned. Different communities discover ways to thrive without the need of a ruling government. Self-formed communities will regulate themselves without government interference.
