Societies that we are memberships of, are hierarchical. (including citizenship of a Government).
There exist master-slave and pear-to-peer relationships.
Suppose, you are the owner (people) of a company. You apply for a labor
position (citizen), down the hierarchy of your company, and get a job.
If your mindset is of a peer, you care for other labors and ask for a
pay rise. (like laborers in Labor Unions). Your objective is your peers'
If your mindset is of a master, you hire and fire the management. (like
people in a republic) Your objective is expanding the scopes of the
company and you direct the company, because you see the big picture. As a
predator, you need more work for less pay.
If your mindset is of a slave, your objective is to do what is told by
your master/management, and to be the favorite, in order to receive more
privileges/bonus. (as citizens in a democracy). As a prey, you fear
punishment, and you dream of more payment for less work.
What is your mindset in general? master, slave or peer?
