Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Zwackus provided the reference to Sahlins.

The Preacher long ago noted: "Every increase in understanding brings forth an increase in sorrow."

I will propose a social corollary: "Every increase in organization brings forth an increase in oppression."

This will remain the case until and unless enough people awaken sufficiently to bring about a change of governing principles from the current, which serve the elites and exploit the citizens, to one that selects elites so as to serve citizens.

Come the day!

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
