A society that's traversed the sova point

When a society is in decline, when it has traversed its sova point, the self-interested thing for the ruling elite to do is to disinvest and to pocket the cash in their private interests or in the interests of their ideological partisans. 
The American Constitutional system apparently did not anticipate the challenges of governance that come with the nation’s sova. The responsibilities of government that serves so strongly to keep public servants honest are not binding in a society that has traversed the sova point. 
The key to governance beyond the sova point is for the ruling elites to have an internal compass that gets coupled with a willingness to submit to a higher power Who is not subject to the temptations of material excess.
