Is there no room for community? Friends? Neighbors? Church/civic groups?

Do you think that people often get help from those around them?

Do you think that people have a general responsibility to help those in their community?

I find it hard to believe that helping oneself and one's family is the end of altruism in the average conservative mindset. Do you agree?
