The 'Toties'

There is a form of governance that continually re-emerges among humans that combines their need for a strong leader in a crises with their innate cooperative nature known as 'team work' that makes the Hosa the dominate species on the planet.  In Man's ancient past, if they really evolved from apes, a leader would be called a 'silver back' because he had the strength to rule a herd of human beings. He would have to be an absolute ruler and this evolved into human societies as a 'totie'. This is an individual who rules some family, tribe, clan, or community by force.  The Totie appears continually in human societies, sometimes as a Pharaoh or king or emperor, sometimes as a military commander of a city or feudal territory he and his family have  come to 'own'.
The totie believes in political power over others as a property to be 'owned' like any other material object on planet Earth. The Silverback mentality re-emerges in all human societies and is a genetic or DNA induced survival mechanism of the past.  Not necessarily an evolving process when Artificially Intelligences appearing in the 21st century can do the same thing, but humans don't need the Silverback totie if their own awareness increases.

Totalitarian Forward Operating Bases (totfobs) have always been an integral part of normal human societies and appear as tribal enclaves determined to acquire political power because they can "do a better job". In actuality, modern totfobs have discovered that if they create enough violence, they can control political power and then  perpetuate themselves in power by permanently "doing a better job" repairing violence that has has done to a society of humans. In spite of many social, economic and spiritual 'enlightenments', totfobs still continually re-emerge.

Dividing countries into 'sovereign' political entities doesn't mean much. Only their hundred year long sociological timelines or their generational progressions have significance. Note the sociological conditions being evaluated here with colors depicting various human systems. About half the spectrum can easily fall under Totie control. Note that one could find half of the colors here listed in any 'country', with varying degrees of interactive crises effects.  Not all strife is by nations. Many times it is the 'colors' colliding within a nation.


A Right: A condition of human existence from birth that has been agreed to for all members of a human group.

Apdicide: Mass murder or serial killing by a sociopath posing as a political or religious activist. Individual acts that are not defined as Crimes Against Humanity or Criaghum.

Demicide: Mass murder by a governing entity for political, economic, religious, or ethnic reasons.  Governmental or Warlord (Arabic: Jabbara, Chinese: Junfa) acts that meet some definitions of Criaghum.

Mass Murder of a society by other societies while using WMD. Generally, the majority of a society must support the governing authority and are equally guilty of Criaghum.

Crime Against Humanity or Criaghum:  As defined by the International Criminal Court. "are particularly odious offenses in that they constitute a serious attack on human dignity or grave humiliation or a degradation of one or more human beings. They are not isolated or sporadic events, but are part either of a government policy (although the perpetrators need not identify themselves with this policy) or of a wide practice of atrocities tolerated or condoned by a government or a de facto authority. Murder; extermination; torture; rape; political, racial, or religious persecution and other inhumane acts reach the threshold of crimes against humanity only if they are part of a widespread or systematic practice. Isolated inhumane acts of this nature may constitute grave infringements of human rights, or depending on the circumstances, war crimes, but may fall short of falling into the category of crimes under discussion."

Constitutionalism Verses Totalitarianism

Our purpose is to stimulate interest in the dynamics of constitutional covenants between citizens. A 'covenant'  is some form of mutual understanding between various Cro-Magnon peoples giving their consent to interact within a common social structure. Such a covenant, even ordained by Creation,  cannot be imposed if it is to be successful. The constitutional covenant must be fully understood and 'generally' accepted, noting that the American Constitution was 'generally' accepted only after the mid 1790s.  That was well after it had been written and amended. The English covenant begin with the Magna Carta and took 400 years to be 'generally' accepted.  The Chinese have had covenants that were 'generally' accepted (Dao?) several times, only to have them dismantled by self-seeking totalitarianists.

Societal Spectrums

     The continents of East Asia, South America, and Africa are shown with a somewhat arbitrary assignment of its dominate social and constitutional status.  Note that all of the societies can be broken into a full range spectrum of not merely left or right, but everything from 'tribal anarchy' to 'parliamentary democracy'.  Tribal anarchies can exist within any other spectrum and so can un-constituted referendum democracy.  A family of six or seven can be in either state and sometimes swaps states in an emergency. The images show the principal, note principal, political structure of constitutional governance in each territory.  In those nations, less than half the territory might be considered 'sovereign' or controlled by a central authority.
