Venn diagrams to describe the model.
Tim Hsea, on the civil-military relations, in the At War blog:
At West Point one of the most spirited debates I witnessed as a cadet revolved around a discussion concerning civil-military relations. The class was divided into three camps, one group which argued that the military was a microcosm of American society, a small circle within a larger circle. Another group claimed that the military shared some beliefs with society, but also had values which were incompatible, and hence the relationship was better represented by two circles which overlapped in some areas. A third group of cadets disputed both groups, and contended that the American military and society were really two distinct circles sharing only one point in common, a commitment to the Constitution.[At War]
Which model describes the current state of civil-military relations in India: concentric circles, partially overlapping circles, or two distinct circles?
