Gemeinschaft in our society represents what the general public wants society to be. Specifically, people want the ability freely choose who they become friends with, and therefore do not like when someone or something else dictates who they must work and sociallize with, like a government or corporation.
However, direction and organization is necessary in order for governments, companies, and societies to accomplish tasks and meet goals. In simplistic rural communities, large hierarchies of management are not necessary because these villages have few responsibilities to fulfill; they mostly need to make sure that their residents are secure, prosperous, and happy. A modern national government must preform these tasks on a much larger scale, so its administrative structure must be larger and the laws that it creates must be more numerous and specific.
