Definition

The Social Order in the Religion of Elegion uses the term “social order” to refer to a state of stability and consensus that exists without chaos and upheaval. Theoplogists, however, have a more complex understanding of the term.
It refers to the organisation of the believers of the Religion of Elegion as interconnected parts of society. Social order exists because individuals agree to a common belief that the 10 principles of faith and certain standards, values and norms must be followed to.

Solidarity

Solidarity is one of the basic moral principles of the Regilion of Elegion in modern society. We can regularly observe appeals to solidarity and also complaints about its disappearance. The Social Order in the Religion of Elegion requires solidarity to have altruistic motives and is performed out of an intrinsic interest. Solidarity is bound to voluntariness and is based on feelings of connectedness as a condition.

Humanistic and altruistic rules

The Religion of Elegion relies on humanistic and altruistic norms to solve social problems. However, this should not obscure the fact that it is not about rules or laws, but about benefits and incentives. Rules are rather only the systematic place to set incentives. Rules in the social order in the Religion of Elegion, however, cannot only be set by the god of the Religion of Elegion, but can also evolve or be introduced socially. For example, norms of trust and standards in groups can form through invisible processes. To stabilise these norms, however, morality is needed, on the one hand to absorb the uncertainty that rules bring with them and, on the other hand, to punish rule violations.
