What is an Engineered Social Environment?

An engineered social environment is a managed one, in which the individuals of some institution are assigned to social roles.  This may in fact include the people who do the managing.  The principal of a school may manage the teachers, but they may have some control of the principal through some kind of democratic process.  The warden of a prison may control the guards, but the guards may influences his choices in a democratic way.  This is not unlike the relationship between the owners and managers of a business with their employees, who may form a union and insist on appropriate working conditions.
