The relationships of the members of societies are largely parasitic, and increase with the complexity of a society, which manifests in the growing numbers of laws with which it tries to regulate its parasitic interdependencies and the mutual devouring of its subjects.
The reaching of its limits is marked by an exhaustion of its resources, the hyper-production of artifacts and raving consumption.

Societies are bound by the emotions of their members. Simple societies evoke them with demons and taboos, stimulate them with gods of revenge and sacrifices, and refresh them with recycling religions. In more complex societies, like those of the Occident, emotions are being taken care of by the media responsible for advertisements, fashions, entertainments, the personality designs of their members, their manner of conduct and communication and, last not least, the fomenting of the emotions which support the ideologies and politics of their rulers.
Where fear is not already dominating a society, it is evoked by its rulers, since societies are easily manipulated with fear – more so in combination with hope.

Societies consider their manipulators to be strong and powerful – but they are merely redistributing their own weaknesses.

Societies are sustained by social, moral, religious, economical, historical & plenty other myths, most of them based on power myths, which are fueled be the powerless, i.e. the weak who admire, fear & desire the powers they attribute to their powerful, who in turn cover up their own weakness with the possession myth.

Well said.
