The Harmonious Society is, alongside the Human Supremacy and the Coordinated State, one of the key policy objectives for the instantiation of a universal Humanist world order on Micras.

Babkhan origins

The Harmonious Society Act was a key piece of legislation in the Imperial State of Babkha, a highly hierarchical and militarised state that existed prior to the 1598 Babkhan Holocaust. The act was designed to reorganize the Euran kingdom into a police state that was focused on reconquering the continent through victory in the Euran Cold War. The act was a manifestation of totalitarian Khanism and was highly influential in shaping the Neo-Babkhan revival that took place in the Suren Confederacy in the late 1680s.

The Harmonious Society Act was a complex piece of legislation that sought to establish discipline, order, and piety within a framework of orthodoxy and loyalty to the Shah of Babkha. The act was divided into several sections, each dealing with a different aspect of Babkhan society and governance.

One of the key provisions of the Harmonious Society Act was the establishment of a system of rights and obligations for Babkhan citizens. Under the act, the exercise of certain civil rights and freedoms was dependent on the quality of the individual citizen, as determined by the Babkhan government. The act also outlined the rights of Babkhan citizens, including the right to life, liberty, security, and protection of the law.

Another important aspect of the Harmonious Society Act was the establishment of a set of legal principles known as "fundamental justice." These principles were designed to ensure that the rule of law was upheld in Babkha, and that individuals were not arbitrarily deprived of their rights or freedoms. The act also included provisions for the protection of the rights of the accused, including the right to a fair trial and the right to legal counsel.

In addition to its provisions related to the rights of citizens, the Harmonious Society Act also contained provisions for the organisation and operation of the Babkhan government. The act established the powers and responsibilities of the various branches of government, including the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. It also outlined the roles and duties of the various officials who served in the Babkhan government.

Despite its totalitarian nature, the act was instrumental in the maintenance of order and stability in Babkha, and provided a template for the Neo-Babkhan revival that took place in the Suren Confederacy.

Modern conception

According to Humanist theory, such a society must also disdain weakness and regularly sift its population in order to identify and eliminate the weak and unworthy. In this view, religion plays a crucial role in reinforcing and sustaining the social order that is established. This is primarily accomplished through the inculcation of piety in the subject populations, which promotes obedience to authority and the enforcement of established norms of group behavior.

Humanist theory also maintains that all human societies are subject to oligarchic rule, with hierarchies of authority and obedience emerging naturally and inevitably. In this view, the leaders of an oligarchy cannot and should not be constrained by the rule of law, and in countries where laws are enacted to constrain the leaders, it will ultimately be the laws that weaken, rather than the rulers.

In a Humanist oligarchy, disloyalty would be addressed through a combination of surveillance, indoctrination, and incentives. Surveillance technologies would be used to monitor the population and identify potential threats to the ruling group, while propaganda and indoctrination would be used to reinforce the values and beliefs of the oligarchy. Incentives such as rewards, promotions, and privileges would also be used to encourage loyalty among followers, with coercion reserved as a last resort.

Technological progress is also seen as a crucial aspect of the Humanist vision of the Harmonious Society. In this view, it is essential for the Holy Cause of Human Supremacy to rapidly industrialise and master the highest technologies in order to survive and prevail against its enemies. Humanist governments may use technology in several ways to enhance and perpetuate their rule, including surveillance, communication, and the development of advanced weaponry.

It should be noted that, in the Humanist conception, citizenship is not a natural state universally attainable by birth or naturalisation, but rather a state of grace, earned through meritorious deeds, proven utility, and rigorous assessment. A citizen therefore belongs to an aristocracy of merit that is thoroughly and strongly differentiated from the condition of the subject. The citizen is worthy of superior rights because he is able to shoulder the burden of far graver obligations.
