17. Communitarians and hierocrats forget that the human good cannot be achieved without the political good, without the political community; that this good cannot be achieved by lesser societies (as communitarianism wants), nor by denying the specificity of politics (as hierocracy wants).

Let us remember the Thomist doctrine: social life is necessary for every man (lay or religious) to reach perfection, because only the perfect man can live in solitude (S. th., II, II, q. 188, a. 8 resp.).
