1) CLASS BY SPECIALIZATION
Weapon of Coercion (influence)
Product of Coercion
TABLE: ARISTOCRACY........OLIGARCHY............PRIESTHOOD...CRAFT Violence...........Payment..............Gossip.......Production Suppress Disorder..Organize Production..Resistance...Goods
Humans are capable of only three means of coercion: violence, payment and gossip. Every society produces specialists (elites) in the three means of coercion, violence, payment and gossip, and one non-coercive group: producers. The size of each group varies and the power varies. But because of the limited choices available for coercion, this law of social orders exists of necessity everywhere at all points in time
2) GENDER DIFFERENCE IN STRATEGIC REPRODUCTIVE CONTROL
Masculine Aristocratic Eugenic vs Female Gossip(priestly) Dysgenic.
3) COMPETITION FOR RENTS BETWEEN PRODUCERS AND INFLUENCERS
I should probably alter this chart so that it operates on three axis to show how aristocrats, oligarchs and priests/academics/public-intellectuals seek rents.
I have been working on this for years and there appears to be no compromise to maintaining the balance of these powers. Anglos had the correct model. The greeks and romans did. We simply lacked the technology (communication and data storage) to extend enfranchisement, and the lower classes were too disgusting (hedonistic and fertile) to include in the power structure.
