That post struck a chord, as I'm working my way through Tocqueville. He has a lot to say about associations (ca. 1830), and figures that they are an essential part of the American democratic system. (Part 2, Ch 5.) I haven't thought about it enough to comment here, but I will consider the difference between Roman and American associations.

One of the first things Tocqueville notices is thsat associations bring together people of varied - and often opposed - backgrounds, but united by some common purpose.
