The value of a systems-theoretic observation of CSR lies in improved understanding of the problems connected to it.

Exponents (see Crowther & Davila Gomez 2006) argue that the exclusive pursuit of private interest erodes the network of social environments on which we all depend, and is destructive to our shared experiment in democratic self-government. A Communitarian perspective recognises both individual human dignity and the social dimension of human existence and that the preservation of individual liberty depends on the active maintenance of the institutions of civil society where citizens learn respect for others as well as self-respect where we acquire a lively sense of our personal and civic responsibilities, along with an appreciation of our own rights and the rights of others.
