Would you conclude our current society leans more toward a hierarchical sociopolitical structure or a more egalitarian one and how strongly does it lean either way?

Thank you.

Shank, I was able to find much information on egalitarian, but I could only find a dictionary definition of sociopolitical, forget the hierarchical part. In today's world I think we are egalitarian. Everyone has a chance to get skin in the game, so to speak. If I was creative enough, had the smarts, I would make a game that would sell. The amount is irrelevant. How much money you currently have, what your race is, or even your sexual preference in today's age does not matter in a pursuit of money. If we were talking about working in the corporate environment, I could say it's the same.

It would seem to me anything having to do with the corporate world would be innately hierarchical since the object is to compete and put your competition out of commission at not only the commercial enterprise level but the internal positional level, as well. The ability of all to compete is not egalitarianism. Egalitarianism is the orcastrated sharing of resources, regardless of ability variances.

Because it reads like a question from a high school test or an essay assignment.

Typos are fun to find. They can also be funny. This one is one of the best I'ver ever come across. Very nice even though it wasn't intentional.

It does read like a essay question on a test for anthropology class. Maybe psychology.

I'm too old for homework if you're worried I'm going to use your answer.

I am not worried about you using my answer this is just not something I study so I would have to do research on the topic and I am lazy lol

You might get more responses if you posted this in the psychology sub forum.
