VEDIC SOCIAL SCIENCE : THE SPIRITUAL BASIS OF CULTURE
The army has its own territory and laws and is a society within society. While we may have eliminated the formality of slavery we still have our servant and poverty classes, along with their ghettos. Such divisions tend to occur according to the different attitudes and aptitudes of people and they can breed conflict and suspicion whether they are formalized or not. They can be used by one group of society to control or take advantage of the others. 

There is, therefore, a natural tendency or need to form different subcultures within society. While it certainly can become a form of oppression, it may have an appropriate form we have to adjust to. Such diversification may be necessary for the full flowering of the different potentials of humanity or for the development of the full range of experience necessary for the human soul to grow. We are not all of one level in humanity. We do not all have the same goals in life. 

Souls are not all of the same stage of development. Just as there are different classes in a school that appeal to students of different temperaments, like science, mathematics or art, so there may need to be different areas of learning in society for different souls to pursue. Some may need to pursue business as an exclusive aim, others politics, others knowledge or art. Just as there are different grades in school so grades in society may also exist. There may be a spiritual class which has advanced beyond ordinary humanity to te point where we should look up to it for guidance.
