I think you can trust people to do what's best for their own communities.
Case and point - UK Gov doesnt want to feed poor kids over the holidays but community food banks will feed poor kids.
When authority moves too far away from the people, it creates the weird scenario of nazis telling folks to round up their Jewish neighbours in exchange for a social and economic safety net even though they wouldnt want to do that under normal circumstances.
It depends what you mean by communities, just because people live close by, doesn't mean they share a community.
Some people are just psychopaths, which is why they need to have their authority diluted by democracy, what happens if you live in a community with quite a few psychopaths, the bigger the community the more dilute their authority is, but the father away from the people the leaders get.
Look at the row in Manchester, some of the local conservative councillors have backed the government over their own area.
