The purpose of this study is to present selected, global socio-political problems in the light of advanced mathematical methods and in congruence with the idea of the unification of academic realms, as well as interdisciplinary thinking. It is argued here that the Public Choice theory has not provided sufficiently precise and advanced mathematical tools of understanding in its approach to Public Policy. Moreover, the Public Choice theory is often associated with neoconservatism. This association seems to be artificial because it imposes normative constraints on research in the subject matter. Unification and interdisciplinary thinking are expected to permit for transfiguration of the individual, the political player, into the "whole human being" who is able to interact with the global environment empathically. It is assumed that transfiguration into the whole cannot be done without prior integration, on the administrative level, of an already severely compartmentalized encoded human experience. Specifically, mathematical and geometrical models of society are presented, based on different variables. The purpose of the models is to allow for a precise, in mathematical terms, redefinition, and, thus, better understanding of worldly phenomena with respect to political, cultural and economic problems. Fundamental concepts such as multiculturalism, freedom, justice, power and distribution are discussed in detail.
