Four elements could be found defining social life in most societies: Moral rules were handed down by the God(s) and were inviolate. The most powerful of the God(s) were male. Human beings lived in tribes and loyalty to the tribe superceded loyalty to the individual. The controlling individuals within the tribe were mostly male and the most admired males were those who had proved themselves as warriors. The role of women was defined by their ability to procreate and and support and obey the warrior class. The pushback against the anarchy of modernity involved recreating tribal lives that operated by those moral rules that had been historically forged in humanity's struggle to survvive and exist as evolutionary imperatives.
