Linda's point is appropriate.  We need to look into the right place to find 
social capital, a term I am not fond of because it places organic 
relationships within the same conditions of capital formation where it does 
not fit.  In any case, Linda points us into the right direction.  We need to 
ask, "What are the conditions, forces and processes that do create civil 
society?"  We may not find civil society in the same places as in the past, 
although there are plenty of examples where this does occur and we should 
not deny civil society's appearance there as well.
