Politics is here considered to mean the social organizations which are derived from agreements between individuals, which are necessary to produce accordance between persons, groups and organizations of varying perspectives, interests and objectives. These agreements are termed Accords. The theory of politics is described here in terms of a dichotomy which is parallel to the fundamental divisions inherent in the human condition stated as the Conservative and Progressive perspectives. In reference to political entities these perspectives are considered to equate to what are termed Utopian and Authoritative politics.

Utopian Politics represents an idealized social consciousness and structure which derives from the consideration that the natural laws of the Given Existence take precedence over the progressive ambitions of humankind.

This is defined as Conservative. Because the prevalent social consciousness is Progressive Materialism, the utopian model is meant to apply to individuals and small groups, who would live their lives based not upon the materialist accumulation of intellectual and material assets, but upon the personal conviction of ethical prohibitions, regardless of the predilections of the many. The authority for human activity and behavior is the individual in conjunction with the natural environment in which one is encompassed.

Authoritative Politics derives from and is inherent to personal and social ambitions which are Progressive. Inherent in the concept of Progression is the Authoritative Imperative, which means that the authority for human activity and behavior is outside the individual as superior attributes, or models of what are called higher human aspirations such as perfected character and talent, wealth, power or humanistic endeavors. This means that the individual conforms and corresponds, in terms of decision-making, to these attributes which in the context of politics are called Authoritative Dictates, that dictate to the individual how one should conduct one's life.
