Under the assumption of rationality, men will seek to attain their ends by the most efficient means available. Among their ends is the recognition of others, and under social conditions, the services of others are always to be found among the potential means to their ends.. Securing both recognition and service by the most immediately efficient means are force and fraud. But the effect of their unlimited employment is that men will 'endeavor to destroy or subdue one another'. That is, according to the strictest utilitarian assumptions, under social conditions, a complete system of action will turn out to be not an order at all, but chaos.
