EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
There are numerous marks of a good society: justice, equity, rule of law, economic opportunity, reciprocity, prosperity, critical thinking, ethical standards, concern for good citizenship, right to defense, right to private property and so on. But where does the value of Goodness for Goodness sake come in? In this paper, our group has made a research regarding on “What makes a good society?” Based on our research we explores some of the elements of what makes for a good society or community from a communitarian viewpoint, with consideration from a combination of social facts as seen by a sociologist. Additionally, ethical considerations with special attention paid to exclusivity and to equality, are addressed. There is some moral dilemma that occurs in doing this research. Where there are some questions bear in mind; what exactly is a “good society”, or a “good community”? And why has it come to have such a critical place in current discussions of problems in our society? In our research, we have made some argument that says that the good society does not just happen; it has to be made and continuously sustained. In this process, more people must be helped to share in the good society. Establishing and maintaining the good society require the cooperative efforts of some, often of many, people. It might seem that since all citizens benefit from the good society, we would all willingly respond that we each cooperate to establish and maintain the good society. But numerous observers have identified a number of obstacles that hinder us, as a society, from successfully doing so.

Based on the research that we have done, we also have to explore how people can be empowered to play as effective a role as possible in making the good society.

We might agree that it takes good people to make a good society, people reaching out to people. We might say that it takes good leaders to design a good society. Lyndon B. Johnson spoke of the "Great Society" which for him meant social reforms designed to eliminate poverty and racial injustice. Johnson's vision was formed by the radical changes of the 1960s and...
