Best of Spherical Model, Part III

This is the third in our series celebrating the 400th Spherical Model blog post. Part I covered the basics of the Spherical Model concept, as well as posts about the Political Sphere. Part II covered posts from the Economic Sphere. Today will look at the Social Sphere, or Civilization, which is the goal.
Civilization requires a righteous people; the self-government of freedom also requires a righteous people; and a prosperous free market also requires a righteous people. Freedom, prosperity, and civilization all hinge on having a critical mass of people willingly living the rules of civilization and not giving in to savagery.
So I probably write more on the Civilization Sphere than the others. Choosing favorites is a challenge. Sometimes I have written series on topics that underlie civilization: valuing life, valuing family, parental responsibility for education, and others. Today’s list would be even more unwieldy than it is if I include those here. So my plan is to limit today’s posts to some favorites; I’ll guide you to the various series some other time. The list is in chronological order, as the lists of the past couple of posts. The * means it’s one of the most re-read posts.
