Describing the archetypical behavior of a culture it can be said that elites provide the active principle of a culture; the final purpose is in the well-being of the mass and the energy conservation is provided by the middle class.
Observing the behavior of the elite of a culture the evolution of the archetype becomes evident.
The elite itself is integrated by different groups. The dominant group of the elite is the one that establishes the trends of the evolution of the archetype. When there is no dominant group, societies’ behavior becomes chaotic.
When there is no dominant group in the elite that drives evolution, to avoid chaos, the government becomes the elite itself. In this case there can be no separation between the State and the government which is a basic condition for the existence of any type of democracy.

Governments in democratic countries represent all the groups of the society as their administrator to provide well-being and a place for the next generations.
When a culture is stagnated the government positions naturally exerting its power to sustain the elite while such elite just seeks for covering its own interests.
This provokes the need to increase the dualistic and individualistic behaviors in order to ensure the interests of the dominant group. If the government itself is the elite, the exertion of power increases and so does corruption.
All the countries that reversed an involution cycle could make it because the role of the elite changed towards proposing a higher level of archetype to ensure evolution. Usually, this turning point implied the existence of a majority of new members in the elite. This post does not include names of countries to avoid misinterpretations.
