Politics is gardening the human ecosystem

Politics is gardening the human ecosystem

Egyptians saw the political order as part of natural order (for example people were born to do different things, rule, serve). On the other exterem, we moderns think politics is the coordination of different equal wills.

The truth is in between:

The natural order places each one in an starting point (a genetic and a cultural endowment). But the starting point, although important, is no definitive. Then we add our vocation (mission) and our freedom. With this, we can get out and make a better world (instead of adapting to it by evolution).

From this perspective, politics is not a social contract but the gardening of an ecosystem that allows each member to walk the maximum distance between the his/her starting point and his/her goal.

In an ecosystem, treating all individual as equals is the sure way to destroy it.
