Whenever and wherever we are, we live in a context that can be described in terms of how it is structured and organized. The organizational structure could be a family, a neighborhood, a workplace, a city, a country, etc. Thus, it can be useful or even essential to have some understanding about such structures and organizations. It can also be useful to understand the hierarchies that may exist within these relationships.
At work, it can be useful to know who leads, who manages, who the employees are and where you fit in. In a family, who are the grandparents, parents, children, etc.?
After you have done this to your satisfaction, proceed to Law.
