Glossary.svg This page describes a concept which is part of our glossary

Cultural codes, values, symbols and systems and institutions of cooperation enable the state to become a spatial entity, through its agents, proponents and dependents. Culture forms the base for active consent while access control to institutions creates a soft force to keep the subjects in line. (By not risking dissent.) This supplies the state with the individual people that project its force into the spatial realm through their actions. This starts with simple social exclusion of dissenters, continues with snitching and inviting the state agents into situations where they are unwanted, and ends by using force against dissenters.

The interwoven aspects of culture, institutions, profits from redistribution and the longing for stability form the foundation for the power of states and assure lasting consent (both passive and active) for this system of domination. We call the totality of this system: The First Realm.
