Using this approach, one now examines the conditions whereby humanity fails to achieve civilization; given the interdependency of economy, issues obstructing civilization are interrelated in similar ways. Labour, capital, agreement and population can succumb to such problems as corruption, debt, lack of expertise, recession, stagnation, poor health, malnutrition, discontent, ignorance, etc., causing and being caused by each other, but regardless of relation, the result is uncivilization. Given that society is founded upon a human population, these issues of human inadequacy are considered inherent to the nature of society, and so, to rectify such insufficiency, one must identify how it counteracts the means and ends of a society and fails to achieve civilization.
To this end, human nature is categorized into three faculties: physical, mental and autonomous. To begin, one defines the first two faculties and addresses the mechanics of their failure. Physical faculties include one’s physical capabilities, general state of health and constitution while mental faculties refer to the computational ability of one’s mind. Assuming a civil contract that contains no contradicting terms, how these faculties fail the contract and uncivilize society are varied. Physical and mental faculties generally cause issues by failing to achieve what the contract requires for civilization, that is, either failing to achieve the necessary productivity or profit, or achieving the necessary through unacceptable expenditure, capital or otherwise. Thus, physical and mental faculties fail to achieve civilization due to limitations in their capability and sustainability.
Autonomous faculty, or simply autonomy, pertains to one’s identity, predispositions and capacities, how one views, presents and conducts one’s self; thus, autonomy concerns the decisions and demands, or lack thereof, of the citizenry, and so directly exhibits their satisfaction, or lack thereof. Intuitively, how one decides and demands to utilize one’s faculties would undoubtedly affect the economy; thus, the failure of autonomy is in impairing the means and ends of a civil contract and economy through said faculties. Should citizens decline participation in a civil contract, uncivilization results, but such cases present a dilemma; infringing on any such citizen’s autonomy itself results in disagreement and uncivilization, as would allowing them to continue. One may justify infringement of another’s autonomy on the grounds of maintaining civilization, or merely the economy itself, but this would result in disagreement with this justification, still incurring uncivilization. As such, autonomous faculties also inherently fail to achieve civilization due to limitations in their capability and sustainability, with additional contention of conflicting demands.
Summarily, the physical, mental and autonomous faculties of a citizenry all pose problems to a civil economy and society. Firstly, physical faculties lack the necessary means to survive within and sustain an economy, regardless of its civility; whether through a lack of healthcare, fitness or adequate sustenance, human physiology is no guarantee of civilization. Secondly, mental faculties can lack the required expertise and comprehension for civilization; this lack of understanding, in any number of disciplines can lead to uncivilization through mishandling of the economy, whether due to a lack of adequate expertise or situational misjudgement. Finally, autonomous faculties can lead to a number of problems due to ignorance and/or disregard beyond one’s autonomy, this in and of itself being possible symptoms of uncivil economic practices, which in turn can compromise autonomy further alongside uncivil terms, and so failing to civilize society in general.
