The fundamental paradox of society is that it contains individuals with a finite life, but is itself (seen from the individual point of view) infinite. Two asynchronous cycles that rarely interesect in their rhythms.
Societies as cultures, are, of course, not infinite. Civilizations build up and collapse. We may be seeing the collapse of 'ours' now.

History is jam-packed with the imposition of alien cultures upon the losers of empire expansion. The invasion of Southern Europe by the Moors was no different, really, to the arrival of Martians.
But what the Moors (or any cultural invaders) bring/brought was a paradigm shift in what education and the law are about.
