Utilizing and Rewarding Integral Man

Who utilizes integral man?
Institutions of a society.
Integral man himself finds gainful employment for his knowledge and skills in nature which is allowed to be  free.

But feudalism and capitalism have appropriated nature and man made tools (capital) through various means. Hence, institutions that employ men have come up. Appropriate moral, legal and procedural prescriptions have to be created so that the integral man is still allowed adequate opportunity to pursue the purushardhas to his satisfaction and to the satisfaction of the society and its institutions.
