  1. State and society ...

    State is the formal structure with government and laws. Executive and judicial in other words.

    Society is the community that we live in. Sometimes it can be imagined. It is also the sum of the relationships which we develop.

    The 'rite of passage' concept is fascinating, especially its apparent decline in the 21st century (and the second half of the 20th).
