What does giving support mean to you? That’s a bad question, because the answer, for every individual, also depends on the context. Support one on one is a lot different than group to group support, or group to one support. When explaining what support really means, it’s important to take all these different contexts in mind. Learning a lesson from contemplating about support in general should be possible here if we try to answer what giving support should really be in any community or one on one scenario.
When giving support to a community as an single individual it must mean that you have a great service, like a plumber or an appliance repairman, or you have many resources like a prince or a governor. Such support from an individual to a whole community might include funding charities, employing people, helping locals get out of debt, supporting community events, etc. But from a group to a single person, support can look much different, although, as we’ll explain in our conclusion, there’s the same similar essence in both kinds of support: an individual supporting a group vs. a group supporting an individual.
When a whole group is supporting an individual, it might manifest in the following forms: rehab, landscaping, appliance repair, fence building, etc. Also, the whole government supports every individual in our population, even if you consider government to population support to be group to group support. Every individual who is a citizen has the chance to receive support from their government, but often this manifests in the form of a single government official which might equal one on one support between government official and a single citizen. For instance, we’re grateful to have this support from Canada where we hail from. But what we have spoken is speaking universally or, in better terms, generally for support in complex human civilization, and doesn’t just pertain to Canada.
Moving on, these are the ways in which support can manifest in society, especially societies where government support is more frequent. Often, in places like the United States of America, support comes from private enterprise, with such institutions as health insurance companies, roofing companies, appliance repair companies, etc. On the other hand, every time we buy something at the grocery store we pay a tax and that tax is supporting the efforts of the government. And to become more metaphorical, shouldn’t a rocky outcrop supporting a dying, ancient tree be called support? If we consider the word a structural term to describe helping the integrity and strength of something in order to hold it in place without faltering, then we can say that nature supports humankind every day with the abundance of food and oxygen we need to survive. Before this turns into a sermon, I just want you to go away with thinking what the best support in the universe is… What above all else gives support to as many things as possible in the universe? We pray to it everyday.
