cohesion kə(ʊ)ˈhiːʒ(ə)n/ noun noun: cohesion the action or fact of forming a united whole. "the work at present lacks cohesion" synonyms: unity, togetherness, solidarity, bond, sticking together, continuity, coherence, connection, linkage, interrelatedness "rewarding individuals breaks the cohesion in the group" Physics the sticking together of particles of the same substance. Origin
The bonds that link group members to one another and to their group as a whole are not believed to develop spontaneously. Over the years, social scientists have explained the phenomenon of group cohesiveness in different ways. Some have suggested that cohesiveness among group members develops from a heightened sense of belonging, teamwork, interpersonal and group-level attraction. Attraction, task commitment and group pride are also said to cause group cohesion. Each cause is expanded upon below.
Group cohesiveness (also called group cohesion and social cohesion) arises when bonds link members of a social group to one another and to the group as a whole. Although cohesion is a multi-faceted process, it can be broken down into four main components: social relations, task relations, perceived unity, and emotions. Members of strongly cohesive groups are more inclined to participate readily and to stay with the group.

I feel very sorry for America. You are good people, but the violence in your society, conducted by your authorities and criminals is way EXTREME.
Can't you do anything about it? Doesn't democracy give you a way to address this?
Your kids get shot up in school.
The police are way brutal, especially with Black People in a lot of states. Your security generally is way violent.
More than anything it is just sad that such modern Western people should have to put up with this.
I am not criticizing, just worrying when I see all this.
800 people got shot in Chicago already this year. This is crazy. I can see why the authorities have to be heavy against violence like that, ...
... but a doctor on a plane being treated like this because the United ' had overbooked is brutal and thug like.

I believe our high prison population is just a demonstration of the fine work our law enforcement do in apprehending and prosecuting criminals better than the rest of the world.
