Isn't this a great question? What is even better, is that it can be addressed. But before we can answer it, we must first answer a more fundamental question, which is: "What is a society?"
For Societology a society is an amalgam of management processes that we have developed during our evolution, which started around 7 million years ago. They affect how citizens interrelate and interact, individually or in groups, and they affect the functioning of the collectivities in which they live in. Society incorporates three layers of management processes. The two first one are personal and the last impersonal.
Interrelational: We have developed these processes to facilitate our interrelations with others. These have been implemented during the period when we lived in small groups, and we did not use tools. (7-4 ma)
Interactional: We have developed these processes to facilitate interactions with objects. These add themselves to the interrelational process and were implemented when we lived in a clan. (from 4 ma to the present)
Organizational: The organizational layer appeared 10 000 years ago. It is an impersonal layer because part of management processes to manage interrelations and interactions are implemented by strangers whereas before they were introduced by members of the group.
These management processes vary depending on the composition of the group leaders and abstract resources present at that time. They can therefore facilitate the development of citizens or not, facilitate the functioning of the collectivity or not.
Societology studies the personal management processes, interrelational and interactional, and the organizational management processes. These processes are used by all citizens, either individually, in groups or collectively, in different proportions depending on the different roles they play within their collectivities, and create our cultural, political and religious Meme, as well as help us manage our daily lives.
Through the study of the management process, societology identifies four types of societies
It goes without saying that for societology, a "good" society, a performing society, is a balanced society, because it is within this type of society that all citizens can better develop, and where fewer conflicts exist.
