I read a sentence in an article in The Hindu which was:

Certainly some people identify strongly with their community, others identify weakly, and still others move on and adopt the meaning systems of another community.

I don't know what "meaning systems" mean here. Any guesses? And I don't think it is anyhow related to premises it follows and those which follow it.

The term "meaning system" refers to a manner in which a person or organization attributes meaning, along with the sources of held meanings (e.g., that person or organization's community) and how they interconnect.
