Reality Building Tech and Social Structure

It is much easier to manipulate a simulacra than it is to manipulate a physical object or a group of people. Technology has allowed us to symbolicate nearly every aspect of society which and drastically increased the scale at which we can manipulate these societal symbols. This doesn't only apply to microchip tech. Arabic numerals and mathematics allowed us to symbolicate monetary systems and create wealth, ritual allowed us to abstract over belief.
