A Prediction and a Working Theory

The Soviet Union based Russian society on egalitarianism, and the result was a nation ruled by kleptocrats.

The Third Reich based German society on nationalism, and the result was a nation terrified of its own flag.

The Islamic Republic based Iranian society on God. When it falls, the result will be a nation of more die-hard, full-throttle, make-Sam-Harris-look-like-the-Pope atheists per square meter than anywhere else in the world.

If you attempt to base your society on a principle, the result will be a bloodstained mockery of that principle, and a vast discrediting of the purpose of your showcase.
