Looking at David Graeber and David Wengrow’s Chapter (2021) “Why The State Has No Origin”(Part 9 of 13)

0230 However, unbeknownst to Graeber and Wengrow, there is another definition that arises from a historical differentiation of category-based nested forms due to the explicit abstraction afforded by speech-alone talk.  Society3, organization2 and individual in community1 are the first to differentiate after the first singularity.  The differentiation continues until situation-level sovereign power3b differentiates from content-level institutions3a in the societyC tier.

0231 Here is a picture comparing the two situation-level category based nested forms.

Figure 36

0232 The first nested form is from the chapter on presence in Razie Mah’s masterwork, How To Define the Word “Religion”.

The second nested form is from chapter ten in David Graeber and David Wengrow’s masterwork, The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity.

0233 From this comparison, I conclude that Graeber and Wengrow’s definition of the “state”2b coincides with sovereign acts and decrees2b.  The potential for order1b parallels the possibility of domination1b.   The potentials underlying the term, “domination”1a by extension, associates to the possibilities inherent in righteousness1a.  Or even worse, the potentials underlying the term, “domination”1a, defines righteousness1a.
