    Sentence structure

    Hi everyone I can not understand sentence's structure, especially what holds together the world polity. "Something of a common culture, and by a clergy ...modernizing intellectuals ..." does not make any sense to me as well as "[T]hose linked to myths of technique have a distinctive world standing and act with special privilege"

    Meyer argues that ‘the world polity is held together by something of a common culture, and by a clergy ...modernizing intellectuals ... [T]hose linked to myths of technique have a distinctive world standing and act with special privilege

    Is "polity" supposed to be "politically"?
