Sapient Egalitarianism
A democratic philosophical movement that emerged during the early Age of Expansion.

It states that, compared with the power and wisdom of hypersapients, the idea of mere sapients holding total authority over other sapients seems vain and ludicrous. Authority is considered most appropriate in the workplace (especially where authority is essential, such as the military) and where issues of criminal justice are raised. Even under such circumstances, many important decisions are left to hyperturings, and sapient employees and underlings are permitted (and even encouraged) to politely question the decisions of their sapient "superiors".
