The ethical aspiration for a society that is politically aware is realized if:

See some applications of this framework.


Build on this Framework by continuing to the next section on: handling change by participating in politics. This next investigation commences with an observation of the inter-relation of change and participation in the Structural Hierarchy just investigated.

If you are interested in THEE technicalities, explore the unexpected finding of relations to Root hierarchy levels.
