Ultimately corruption and inefficiency can be traced to the dissolution or weakening of community, or through extreme individualism, with an individual disregarding the will of the members of society. Jane Jacobs and Dashiell Hammett show the relationship between corruption and community. Jacobs explains that the community must be united, its interests shared among members, people look after one another and division does not exist. If the interests of the community and the individual contradict, the two cannot coexist. Hammett shows the dangers of an individual or group imposing their own will and ignoring the will of the community, in Red Harvest this leads to death and general chaos in society. Individualism places the desires of the individual over the desires of the community, which could effectively be the decision between fulfilling carnal desires, illegally, and contributing to public works.
