Could you apply Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs Pyramid to societies and nations?
From the beginning of the human species', we started in small tribes with the main goals of maslows pyramid. Survival was the main concern, food, living, sickness.
Eventually as societies could find ways to do this they grew and started the next level, safety. This was where the start of leadership began along with laws and wars.
I really don't know what comes next, because I live in america, so I ask these questions: What does a self accepting society, multi-society accepting, self actualized, and a self transcended society look like?
Is this a full pyramid that needs one level to get to the next? Does the base of the pyramid's percentage of satisfied in a society govern the 100% comparison to the next level? (in other words if 96% are happy physically then 96% is the 100% for the next level which shapes it like a pyramid). What is the percentage of the population needed to move a society to the next level?
Lastly, does the percentage of a society hitting a level in the pyramid directly affect one of its citizens chances and percent of hitting that or the next level?
