not because Sociocracy
constrains them to good behavior.

By "good" I didn't mean according to externally defined standards. "Good" as in effective in moving the group toward their aim.

One would hope that in measuring aims over time, the group would come to understand that if one's aim is war, then war will be returned, and modify their aims. But sociocracy doesn't require "good" aims.
