Therefore, in order to evaluate the role of voluntary associations in mitigating participatory inequality intrinsic in social stratification systems, it is first necessary to see what types of associations prevail in each country. People in different countries join voluntary associations for different reasons (Anderson, Curtis, & Grabb, 2006; Schofer & Fourcade-Gourinchas, 2001). Voluntary associations also vary in their roles from country to country (Lowry, 2005; Ross, 1988; Wuthnow, 1991). Similar to the United States which is known as a “nation of joiners” (Schlesinger, 1944), Korea too is a nation where people have an unusual proclivity to organize and enter a variety of associations (Ch’oe, 1994).

Therefore, contrary to Putnam’s assertion, intensely connected social groups whose members are unreasonably and intolerantly devoted to their immediate relationships are less likely to produce civic resources. In such cases, civic attitudes, norms of mutual benefits, and interpersonal trust beyond the realm of the group can scarcely grow (McPherson, Smith-Lovin, & Cook, 2001; Walzer, 2002, p. 37). While the criticism seems to be reasonable, however, it should be also noted that Putnam at least alludes to the conditions under which associations can be facilitative of civic resources.
