(amassing economic wealth arbitrarily), war victory and defeat (treating the defeated
persons as slaves or serfs), and concentration of power in the hands of one individual or a
group of persons. Over time, governments would form, either by consent, as Hobbes and
Locke argued, or by force (See Olson, M., 1993 for instance) and would serve to justify
the material possessions and power hierarchies of their societies. The descendents of
early human beings would go through series of economic and political systems, slave
system and feudalism, before their more contemporary children would get to capitalism
and democratic rule. Arbitrary use and source of power and income would flourish from
the time the early humans lost the natural equilibrium until after the early years of
capitalism. Socioeconomic life may have been hard and harsh for most ordinary
individuals, although it might have gotten better over time; people were, on average,
better off economically in the feudal system than in the slavery and in the capitalism than
in the feudalism (See Scully, G., 1992:62 for instance). While today’s democratic rule
has relatively abolished arbitrary barriers that would impede the wellbeing of citizens, the
effect of the past seems to have left a deep scar on the social, economic, and political
lives of citizens. Most individuals and their children have not had the economic and
political advantages necessary to educate themselves and lead happier lives until the
advent of democratic states. Thus, a major task of modern democratic governments has
been to assist the disadvantaged groups with education and other fundamental services.
Lower classes, left-oriented parties, and some other groups and scholars invoke the
