What is society?

"Although human being are morally autonomous, they do not live in isolation. In language, laws, institutions, religion and families, we are part of a continuum. Society is a partnership not only between those living but between those living, those dead and those to be born. It is a pretence that now is the only time which matters...." 

Charles Moore writing about the ideas of Edmund Burke
