One’s worldview depends on where one stands. Progressives view the modern state as the pinnacle of human achievement, while tribal societies view it as a corruption of governance. In his recent blog essay on social evolution, my colleague David Ronfeldt contributes what I consider a useful framework for discussion. In my comment there, I offer a perspective for modifying this framework to include an analysis of how tribal institutions and networks can lead the way in democratizing capital ownership—what I consider the most vital of human projects for a sustainable future.
