Example text

Stonehenge Not All Chiefdoms on the direct Road to Statehood In Neolithic Europe and thereafter through the early Bronze Age we find a tradition of building large stone structures called Megaliths . Most of these are tombs but some are of the rather spectacular impress-the-sheep variety such as Stonehenge . The primary purpose of the megalithic architectural tradition is to dump labor-time before it can become surplus social product. Stonehenge construction may have required three million man hours, so this architecture is clearly a major undertaking of many Tribes, Simple Chiefdoms and at least one Advanced Theocratic Chiefdom in southern England bringing the main construction elements (blue stone) from some 240 miles away.

The Ancient World state is the army (and navy) and police (in contemporary times the state is the military-intelligence establishment and the secret police). It must grow constantly to keep the slaves in submission. The larger the mass of slaves the greater the size and thus the cost of the army and police must be. The surplus generated by the slaves steadily falls behind in its rate compared to the growing costs of industrial or agricultural production, especially the growing cost of the state.
