What can we say of the goals and aims of nation-states? Of markets?
Constructs of the human world act just like any other animal. From what I can tell it’s all about stability and growth.
It might be easier if you think of religious institutions.
One day we were happy, the next day we had religion.
Suddenly you have a fractured global religion with localized sub-varieties in various ecological niches. We have the Pope and we have the Bitter Churchlady.
Demonic mouths starving for their next meal. Slobbering angry cries of angst and hunger scream under every footfall. Dizzying hunger stalks prey beneath every shadow.
Politics is just that. Nation states…economic paradigms…just that.
One day we were happy, the next day we had hierarchy.
