“There is no such thing as society: there are individual men and women, and there are families.”
The odd thing about people who think “there is no such thing as society” is that in order to think that, they must ignore a reality as omnipresent in their lives as the sky above and the earth below: Namely that our species lives in groups.
Or put more precisely, they must ignore the utterly obvious fact that we are a social animal. Perhaps only someone who, like Thatcher, had a political and ideological motive great enough could deny a reality so obvious.
Don’t believe anyone who says, “There is no such thing as society” who is not a hermit.
