    Pedantry is a point in itself is it not?

    No a society is a group of people who live in a defined geographical area.

    A nation state is a culture which creates a state. The institutions being founded within the culture and then join together to protect their power. So in Britain we have the Church of England, Aristocracy and Monarchy. Along with the House of Commons, government and Media.
    Only in your head. Geography != Society (who defines the boundaries, ah yes the state).

    No the society is defined by a subject. The state is defined by the territory under the control of the state, or in other words part of the state.

    There is a Scottish society, but no Scottish state. There is a London society, but no London state. So I am correct, you are wrong. I do hope you are now will to yield in your position, if you are objective and open minded you will.

    Who appoints him? Oh yes, the political party, the political party being a political institution carrying out the will of the state.

    Freedom from indoctrination/ pressure from parents/society to follow a certain religion
    Practically impossible, even if you were able to ban strict 'indoctrination' a child is still going to grow up around parents who hold belief x, that child is still going to be exposed to things like church services etc. simply because if (assuming both parents are of the same religion) the parents go to a church service (for example) then the children will go to.

    As for pressure from parents, again while you could ban explicit pressure, pressure is going to exist in some form or another even if it's not intentional.
