Third quadra (Gamma) - types, values, mission of quadra in socionics
Quadra representatives: types of Politicians (SEE), Entrepreneur (LIE), Critic (OR) and Guardian (ESI)
The Gamma Quadra is characterized by the priority of private property over state and democratic power over authoritarian. In Beta, property can also be owned by one person, but only by way of management, and not final ownership. It can always be taken away by force, transferred to another person, nationalized, etc. The gamma principle is as follows: the state for the individual, not the individual for the state.

Historically, a system of checks and balances has emerged to implement this principle. To prevent the beta-quadral usurpation of power, John Locke developed the concept of separation of powers. Thus, he became the ideologist of the gamma state in contrast to T. Hobbes, the theorist of the beta-type state structure.
State life in Quadra Gamma is based on the broad autonomy of individual territories, linked to each other more economically than politically. The principle of federalism is preferred to Unitarianism. Parliament has a bicameral structure. Regional leaders are elected, not appointed. The ideologists of the Second Quadra, as you remember, insist on a unitary centralized state.
Kvadra Gamma introduces commodity-money relations into the economic life. Its native element is a free market economy. In our case, this ambiguous term should be understood as the following provisions:
- limited state participation in the economy, in particular, ensuring the rule of law, macroeconomic regulation, non-profit social programs,
- healthy competition without monopoly, mafia, racketeering, pressure from shadow capital and other beta-inclusions ,
- an open economy, that is, with low taxes and low import duties,
- a free labor market with a mobile labor force,
- a developed banking system that ensures the rapid movement of capital to more profitable industries.
The final state of this kind of economy is exactly the opposite in comparison with the economy of the mobilization type: there are many goods, little money. Hence the strong role of advertising and the variety of ways to sell surplus goods (sales, discounts, prizes, multilevel marketing, etc.). The exact characteristic of the mature Gamma is therefore the term consumer society.
Socionics. Selfishness as a trait of human nature is no longer hidden, but is considered the norm. Free family relationships cease to amaze.

The next most important sign of the arrival of gamma values is the dynamization of social life. Any country begins to develop rapidly, as a rule, after reforms that introduce widespread privatization of property. “Babylon and Tire, Carthage and Tarentum, Athens and Rome, Venice and Genoa, Novgorod and Pskov, the United Provinces of Holland and the United States of America - the wealth and power of these republics are invariably associated with the triumph of the principle of the inviolability of the social I-can of every citizen, that is, private ownership principle ".
The Meiji restoration in Japan, the Stolypin reform in Russia, the modern transformations in China - all these are examples of full-fledged gamma reforms that are closer to us in time.
As historical practice shows, this state of affairs cannot last long, as it leads to a war of “all against all” - an extreme exacerbation of social tension between the rich and the poor. You can let off steam only by redistributing the national product through high taxes on large incomes (the principle of social democracy). But this slows down economic growth. This is how the driving force of gamma values is exhausted.

Values of the Third Quadra types: Liberal-pragmatic
It is characterized primarily by individualism. Individualism should be understood as focusing on oneself and not on others. Selfishness as a trait of human nature is no longer hidden, but is considered the norm. The desire to make a profit permeates all aspects of human life, including family relationships.
Hence the special role of money - the main commodity that can be exchanged for any other commodity. They become a symbol of human success. As destructive as money for the second quadra (corruption undermines the foundations of any beta-quadral empire), it is beneficial as a source of growth for Gamma.
Even friends and close relatives prefer to maintain individual autonomy. Love of convenience, marriage contracts, early departure of children from the parental home, unwillingness to follow social stereotypes in private behavior - all this serves the purpose of strengthening everyday independence. People with such values cannot be lured into the collectivist "justice society" of the Beta Quadra.
The root value of Quadra Gamma is pragmatism. As you know, the traditional ideology of the Anglo-Saxon countries is based on it. Their ruling and educated circles have a dislike for the structural logic that generates overarching systems. All that is beneficial (philosophy of pragmatism) is recognized as true. Absolute truth, or even the pursuit of it, is rejected.
Another ideological support of Gamma Quadra is liberalism. Functionally, it should be understood primarily as freedom of choice. It is clear that such a situation is impossible in the long term without tolerance for dissent, and not only in politics. Any dogmas collapse, beta bans are lifted. Over time, liberalism increasingly manifests itself as a desire to turn everything on its head, to unite the incompatible.
Liberalism has serious implications for the intimate and personal sphere. Free family relationships cease to amaze. Sexual minorities are coming out of the underground. The emancipation of women is in full swing. The confusion of gender and age roles is a final blow to patriarchal beta morality. Loss of reference eventually begins to threaten the mental health of society.
Life turns into an endless celebration. Music is playing everywhere, advertising signs and shop windows are burning with bright lights. The minds of people are seized by hedonistic-consumer morality. When a person is full of certain foods or drinks, he begins to mix them. Such a mixture, eclecticism, is a characteristic feature of the mature Gamma quadra.
Critical and anti-dogmatic processes are taking place in intellectual life - what is now called postmodernism. Postmodernism is a broad philosophical doctrine of an eclectic sense, based on a mixture of genres and blurring of boundaries. Postmodern aesthetics in theater, cinema, painting, and literature, as in a mirror, reflects the ideological system of the Gamma Quadra, which is usually called Western values.
