Direct Democracy

Aside

Ideally, there would be direct democracy for urban centres existing side-by-side with self-directed spiritual communes in the countryside (with roughly ten thousand people per commune.)

The urban centres would utilize high-efficiency capitalism where VERY limited inequality maintains competition rather than any poverty.  In order to maintain this inequality, extra output could just be given to the communes rather than destroyed through war.

…The social conditions of the citizens were comparable to those in Sumeria and superior to the contemporary Babylonians and Egyptians.

…neither sculptures of rulers nor depictions of battles and military campaigns have been found, evidence pointing in either direction is not conclusive.

 

 

 


The Indus Valley Civilization is known for its highly sophisticated and egalitarian urban development that included multiple story houses designed to take advantage of air currents to create natural ventilation.

Many houses had wells and bathrooms as well as an elaborate underground drainage system.

Their society was known for being peaceful.  From my perspective, a society that is peaceful, egalitarian, and lacking evidence of rulers points to very limited elitism and the likelihood of statelessness.

High-Functioning Anarcho-Communism

Standard

The self-sustained micro-communities created by the Hakka people of Fujian province are proof that egalitarianism and statelessness do not result in mass poverty or cannibalism.

These micro-communities were high-functioning (many equipped with sewage systems,) environmentally friendly, and adapt for self-defence.

They are inscribed as exceptional examples of a building tradition and function exemplifying a particular type of communal living and defensive organization, and, in terms of their harmonious relationship with their environment, an outstanding example of human settlement.
