We modern Western intellectuals think a lot about human groupings on a large scale - 'society', nations, civilizations, Mankind... Indeed, over the past couple of centuries, this way of thinking has become very widespread, trending towards universal.
But what does God think about such abstract entities?
Not much, I strongly suspect. As our Father; God would regard such matters as means to an end.
More exactly, other than the family and other rare connections based on genuine inter-personal love; God would regard society/ nations/ civilizations as (more or less fluid, more or less arbitrary) collections of individual immortal souls.
What God would Not do is regard individual human souls as components of social-groupings; and therefore (working as creator) the world would be made such that the salvation and theosis of each living soul would not be determined by the social grouping in which it finds-itself.
This; because the placing of human souls into specific human societies is not arbitrary, but something chosen with the utmost care by God; and the specific situation of each soul with respect to salvation and also theosis would be of the first concern of God.
To put it differently; in His ongoing creative activity in the mortal world - God would be much more concerned that each soul retains the living possibility of salvation and theosis; than that a soul be happy, comfortable, peaceful, or gains such this-worldly gratifications.
And further; God would be much more concerned with ensuring that each and every one of his children be maintained with all possibility of salvation and theosis; than that these individuals be coordinated such as optimally to maintain good societies, nations or civilizations - in the abstract and totalizing ways that we so often talk about societies, nations and civilizations.
Most likely the social-groupings would be generated bottom up, much more as sums-of-their-parts; than as units in their own right.
If I am correct; this suggests we (most of us) need to critique our own ways of thinking about society and other human groupings, in which we treat them almost as if they were 'the real thing' and God's proper concern.
At the extreme - all human groupings might collapse, and Men die en masse; and yet God may continually be creating opportunities for every individual human to be saved by choosing Jesus as Lord; and for each soul to learn from experience in the way each soul most needs - and thereby develop spiritually toward greater divinity.
