Societies each have a common glue that binds them, setting the course of a collection of people. We can identify three things that throughout mankind's history have served as objective truths: 1) Nature - common in the ancient world, fragmented and rare today, 10,000+ year legacy 2) God - replaced Nature, common by the Middle Ages, beginning to fragment today, 2000-year legacy 3) Man - the New World Order that seeks to replace God by settings its adherents to war with one another and thereby become the top priority of modern civilization. Man may become the shortest lived legacy. We do not yet know by examining our history if the cycle loops back around with Nature on top once again. What seems true is that the manner in which we prioritize these three in our society determines our direction as different flavors of civilization. The destructive force behind the conflicts between civilizations has always been the priority differential between these ideals among collections of people. Thus, with three conflicting options available to us, we each pull in different directions or do not move at all.
