Humans unconsciously rely upon these social constructs in order to establish priorities in political decision making:
- The Family
- The Cult
- The Tribe
- The Fraternity
In the west, we rely upon the fraternity. The remnants of our military social order.
Democracy works for us because we are a fraternal society FIRST. Democracy DEPENDS upon the fraternal society.
The competing sentiments of tribe, cult, and family give rise to the different approaches to the solution of political problems.
IT’S THAT SIMPLE.
