I believe that the only sufficient condition for civilization is a genetic predisposition for intelligence and morality in the population. If this exists, then the various necessary conditions for civilization will fall into place. It is true that some of the necessary conditions may contribute to this sufficient condition, but this is not guaranteed. Only when this sufficient condition exists can one be sure that civilization will develop.
I admit that this is purely my hypothesis, just speculation. But I am just posting this to prompt discussion. What is your opinion on this question?
All groups have a code of rules. It is just a matter of finding the best one and following it and recognising when the one you have is no longer working.
It is time for Westerners to come to terms with the fact that the West has no functioning moral system at least effective at maintaining minimum standards of sexual morality ensuring that most parents are married parents and most children brought up by their two married biological parents living together in a loving relationship.
It is therefore time to acknowledge that the West is a degenerate matriarchy whose opium is sexual liberation from the rules of marriage and good parenting.
This means if the problem is matriarchy, the solution must be patriarchy.
If the destination is patriarchy, the vehicle must be theocracy.
The sufficient condition for civilisation is patriarchy.
