Unicist Approach: Understanding the Nature of Social Power

Before the unicist approach existed, the social power was basically defined by the social capital of societies. This produced a dichotomy where the apparent social power was one while the true influence of the social power of a culture was another question.

The unicist approach provided the structure of social power considering it as one of the elements of the power of Nations. It provides the structure that needs to be managed in cultures to produce national synergy to have power without needing to exert it.

“It has to be considered that Social Power puts the Archetypes of a Nation into action and is also the power that fosters the evolution to the next step.

This implies that it is the most energy consuming fundamental of the Power of Nations. If the energy is not invested, the power doesn’t generate its contribution and the culture tends to involve.

It has to be considered that the Social Power puts the Economic Power into action and therefore all the aspects of the economic power need to be covered when making social power work. This means, basically, all the aspects that are related with work, education and technology.

The purpose of Social Power is to generate National Synergy which is the attitude the society takes to work when following one direction in a synergistic way.

The establishment of a culture is what puts the synergy into action and the formal and real institutionalization is what provides the necessary energy conservation to ensure the direction of the National Synergy. “
