In the Ancient World the fundamental institutions of Property, Patriarchy and Slavery were never questioned. It was self-evident that any society that abandoned these essential features of human civilisation would surely fall into chaos.
Except that there was one society which broke every one of these rules.
This volume outlines the establishment of Terrapulchra. It examines what the main actors were thinking at the time, what they did and why they did it. In desperation they invented alternative social paradigms that were scandalous by any criteria accepted at the time. Yet every step along the way seemed unavoidable and inevitable at the time. What else could they have done in those circumstances?
These innovations proved so successful that they changed the rest of the world irrevocably.
