Redefining Society From The Bottom Up

If we are to reinvent ourselves, we need to take a different look at society and our part within it. Then we need to redefine society.

Society is divided into two parts. The first part consists of members of society that actually produce society’s products. The second part consists of those members of society that manage the relationships of those that actually produce society’s products. The ones that actually produce society’s products are the important ones. The ones that tell them what they can and cannot do are actually the less important ones. Therefore, while the bottom of society is always needed, the top of society is interchangeable and can be provided either privately or publicly.

But in our societies the top sees itself as the most important social sector and the bottom is seen as expendable. Historically those at the top have dominated those on the bottom. The top has used those on the bottom to achieve their own purposes. What we need is a society where the bottom tells the top what it wants and the top provides it for them the way that they want. This would allow the bottom of society to provide itself with the kind of top society that it felt was best for their particular purposes.
