In Binding genoeg Annemarie Kok argues against the tenacious idea that Dutch society suffers from a surplus of 'I' and a lack of 'we'. She demonstrates that social cohesion arises precisely there where individuals can freely and voluntarily interact with eachother. Current policies that force cohesion on a local level against citizen's own will, are more harmful than beneficial.
