Communitarianism involves building intentional community. As elementary school districts are given incentives to become autonomous, then communities can become so close-knit that they could be considered tribal, which in the age of the internet would not lead to parochial hatred of outside groups.

A five-thousand-year period of patriarchal or male-dominated civilization has brought many creature comforts and technological improvements, but it has morally and socially failed miserably. The monotheistic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) have encouraged the subduing of the earth, the domination and exploitation of Mother Earth and women--which may be one reason why we have such an environmental crisis today. Feminism would encourage males to be more nurturing and empathetic. Thankfully there are emerging elements within the monotheistic religions (such as Progressive Christianity) that are now encouraging non-dual states of awareness. This allows them to directly experience the divine source within, as a preference to the earlier emphasis on statements of faith and creeds to prove one's salvation.
