Covenant and class

"... in court societies the. bond of mutual obligation was distorted." Richard Sennett, The Craftsman, pg 73.

Power relations historically put one class above another, and in the process broke the covenantal bond that should have connected the classes with each other.

So too the divine and mundane courts. When God becomes a ruler out of touch with His subjects the cosmic order becomes distorted.
