This book is a manifesto for an integral society in which sovereign individuals are served by social institutions, not exploited by them. Social institutions have a valuable place in an integral society, but they must be kept to their mission, sphere, and level of society. This book is about creating social institutions and a constitution for sovereign individuals to pursue life, liberty, and happiness in a sustainable world.
