Is Another Sequence Possible?

There Is No Alternative!

Proposition: There are, in principle, no alternative sequences.

It seems rather obvious that democracy-rights (Stage-2), commerce (Stage-3) and reasonable inquiry (Stage-4) are the Triad of communal institutions on which a society must initially build its politics. Each stage provides more control over the ever-present lust for power rampant in Stage-1 and ever-present.

Or Is There?

We can and should check the order by imaginatively trying out alternatives, step by step, and seeing what emerges.
