1 Concept at Time

Societalogically speaking, societies are only the result of our individual, group and collective actions. Hence, the better the citizens, the better the societies.

To help us, citizens, acquire the knowledge and develop the skills that will make us better, more competent citizens, a series of videos will be published on the YouTube channel Societally Yours! 

First Series:
Official Launch

The series consists of 5 videos, 4 of which are introductions briefly describing the 4 main themes that will be covered on the channel. The fifth video tells the story behind the initiative.

  001 – Understanding our Societies
  002 – Understanding our Role as Citizen
  003 – Understanding our Sociality
  004 – Understanding Our Societal Cancers
  005 – The Official Launch

Second Series:
A Deficient Societal Language

We have started to live in societies shortly after we adopted a sedentary lifestyle, but until now, the major words we use to talk about societies have been deficiently defined. The following three videos explain the situation.

  1. The Power of definitions
  2. A Deficient Societal Language
  3. A Cancerous void

Third Series:
Understanding our Sociality Series

Thanks to Darwin, we have access to a theory of the evolution of species that enables us to understand the evolution of all species, including the evolution of the Hominoidea, which includes the human species.

Unfortunately, we don’t have access to a theory on the evolution of sociality. However, without having developed a theory in this sense, interestingly, in the course of my research, I was able to identify a few milestones that helped us create the necessary knowledge and develop the necessary skills that enabled us to become the social beings we are today.

I tell the story of the evolution of our sociality by tracing the emergence of these milestones.

  1. From one to many
2. Embracing Sociality
3. Human sociality
4. Our autodomestication
5. The evolution of our collective organizations
6. The great technological revolution
7. The big march
8. From many to too many

Fourth Series:
Understanding SOCIETALogy

Societalogy is a new macro-management science that enables us to study societies as organizations and citizenship as a profession.

This new approach allows us not only to better understand our societies and the important role we play within them, but also to identify guidelines that will help us make our societies’ better, thus balanced societies.

  1.  SOCIETALogy: a quick overview
  2. The theoretical model of a balanced society
  3. The theoretical model of a competent citizen
  4. SOCIETALogical governance
  5. Citizen ethics

Fifth Series:
Social Order, Freedom and Liberty

One of the words we’ve used the most during the pandemic is freedom. Unfortunately, our widespread collective ignorance doesn’t allow us to understand the management processes that frame our freedom. We try to get by using our intuition or common sense. Unfortunately, the common sense of the one is not compatible with the common sense of the other.

In this series, I’ll explain the process by which we create the domain of freedom and gain permission to do what we are allowed to do.

  • The social order and freedom
  • Liberty 
  • Liberty on steroids
  • Freedom of expression
  • Freedom of the press

Sixth Series: 
The Decision-Making Process

Societalogically speaking, we are all co-owners of the societies in which we live, but we cannot all participate in the management of our societies. On the other hand, we can all participate in the macro-management of our societies.

This macro-management begins with the establishment of a decision-making process that will enable us to adopt laws and regulations, and decide on budgets that will enable us to achieve a balanced social order. The explanatory videos I present here identify management practices that have the potential to become best practices in decision-making processes.

  1. Optimizing electoral districts
  2. Optimizing electoral representativeness
  3. Optimizing sectoral representativeness
  4. Optimizing the electoral process

Seventh Series:
Achieving sectoral equilibrium

Identifying the best practices to promote a society’s development must be done in all sectors. In other words, in every field.

Eight Series:
Our Societal Cancers

In our societies, conflicts arise naturally because we are social beings. The more we are, the greater the number of conflicts.

As the number of conflicts increases, we create various management processes to prevent, resolve or manage them.

Unfortunately, some of these management processes are incompatible with our social and societal development and integration, as well as with the development and functioning of our governments and societies. They can, in the short or long term, turn into societal cancers.

As I share knowledge on the Societally Yours Channel, I will, when the timing is right, post videos to talk about the various societal cancers listed. The first video will focus on our generalized collective ignorance.

  1. Generalized Collective Ignorance

Ninth Series:
Creating a Community of Practice for Citizens.  

As mentioned  in the Official Launch video, the catalyst behind SOCIETALogy was the idea of creating a community of practice for citizens. The following videos explain a few  concepts about communities of practice as well as the role SOCIETALogy plays in facilitating a community of practice for citizens.  

  1. The Power of Communities of Practice
  2. The Potential of Communities of practice for Citizens
  3. SOCIETALogy: a Quick Overview 
  4. Understanding Mental Models
