Humanity’s Hierarchy, Essentially Unchanged From the Beginning to Now

Prophets:

Describe and dictate the Will and the Law (Dictated Truth; Dictated Ethic) of the Transcendent Collective Ideal—That from which all Men and Reality are directly sprung, and That to which all Men and Reality shall be subordinated and sacrificed. (E.g. The People, The Proletariat, the Church, the Tribe, The Race, The Nation, Diversity and Equity, Social Justice, The Environment, even “God” or The Gods, The Common Good.)

Priests:

Generally the ruling class; the Government; the State. Organizes (centralize, manage, regulate) society in accordance with the Dictated Truth and Ethic of the prophets. Becomes the Incarnation of the Transcendent Collective Ideal to humanity under its influence (which is ideally to be all of humanity).

Soldiers:

Military, police, paramilitary, mob, “deputized” criminal, imported foreign hoard, mercenary, etc. Enforce the Dictated Truth and Ethic laid down by the Prophets and organized by the Priests; use violence and threats of violence, which are legalized and legitimized by the Authority of the Prophets and Priests, to compel behavior in service to the Ideal.

Disciples:

The “law-abiding” citizen; the “accepted servant” of the Prophets and Priests; the Obedient Masses. These are perpetually and pervasively depraved, yet are given periodic conditional absolution through their performance of ritual and sacrifice, as well as regular expressions of servility and subservience.

Unwashed:

Those deemed by the Prophets and Priests as outside of salvation and as-of-yet eschewed by the Transcendent Collective Ideal. Treated as criminals and summarily punished and tortured if possible (if within the practical scope of the prophets and priests), either to be destroyed or eventually habilitated or rehabilitated into the disciple class. Law-breakers, critics, resistant ones, skeptics, or those simply outside of the practical authority of the prophets and priests. These are unredeemed, not necessarily irredeemable

Apostates:

The excommunicated. This group is usually comprised of those who were once respected members of the other classes (minus the unwashed) but for some reason have been declared irredeemable and forever condemned by the Transcendent Collective Ideal. The hopeless, the miserable, the hell-bound.
