Mechanical solidarity is a small organization, such as a community, performing similar tasks to benefit self interest. Most mechanical solidarity is known for having great personal relationships and healthy families. When living in an Gemeinschaft community, laws and rules are not strictly enforced due to the loyalty of each individual. For example, the school that I go to is very small. The grades range from kindergarten through high school. All the teacher’s know who you are and everyone knows everyone. My school has a very safe and friendly environment. Another example of Mechanical solidarity is the Amish community and Organic solidarity would be United States. Organic solidarity is peoples dependence on each other and society. An example of the organic solidarity would be the work force such as managers and owners. People may not agree with what they are doing but will do it in order to make money and a living.
