Chapter Summary

The political system of Calvinist, like any, theocracy is by assumption a theocratic polity, including a church-state. At this juncture, Calvinist theocracy is considered both a partial political and a total societal system, a polity and society alike. In a holistic sociological sense, as conceived in the present work, Calvinist theocracy constitutes a total social system or society, incorporating its intertwined theocratic economic, political, civic, and cultural systems, including a state-church, as its integral elements or subsystems. In holistic sociological terms, the political system of Calvinist theocracy thus understood is defined by equivalent theocratic and to that extent anti-liberal and non-democratic attributes and outcomes, as are its other entwined partial systems, the economy, civil society, and culture. Hence, the type of polity inherent to Calvinist and other theocracy as a social system or society is an anti-liberal and non-democratic.
