Different social pathologies historically from different cultures around the world.
Chinese – Confucius
Southern European – Jesus
Arab – Muhammad
East Indian – Buddha

Knowledge is power.
Inspired by Foucault and his ‘discursive regularities’ found in The Archaeology of Knowledge, I have connected different social pathologies historically from different cultures around the world.
Osiris -> Confucius -> Jesus -> Buddha -> Muhammad -> Norman Invasion
As we can see, through a variety of cultures globally, the West is a development of different social pathologies. To summarize the development:
Loyalty (Osiris); filial piety (Confucius); slavery (Jesus); enlightenment (Buddha); creativity (Muhammad); domination (Norman Invasion).
There is a progression from loyalty to domination, which progression has cost the blood of generations. There is also one similarity between these social pathologies – which similarity is that knowledge is power. Knowledge is a calling. Listen carefully.
