Instead, we need structured society, good at instilling and guiding youth, caring and flexible in meeting the needs of the people. The great organizations of society are needed in private-public partnership — the schools, the churches and other social and interest-oriented institutions. These should rightly provide living frameworks — what Anthony Wallace called mazeways — to lead them through the habits and actions of healthy, happy lives. These are processes, serving and creating cycles that themselves frame the activities of living systems and the interactions supporting nature generally.
