Human beings are social animals. From the family to the nation, we associate with one another. We aspire to belong, and we seek purpose in that belonging — whether it is as simple as going to work, participating in a book club, bringing a son or a daughter to soccer practice, or going door-to-door for a political candidate. Even the abolishing of political parties would do nothing to curb political association. Such organizations would still appear, and they would still be vehicles for ideas and platforms.
