A PARTY OF ONE

***

A party of one

Avoids bad factionalism

Critic of both sides

***

NOTE: After Dante is exiled from Florence, he considers joining a faction that will let him return to Florence while exiling many members of the other political party. Dante decides that this is bad factionalism and that he is better off being a party of one who criticizes the evils of bad factionalism (when it occurs) of all political parties.
