- Civil War, Terrorism and Gangs. Social Dynamics
The work discusses social dynamics by analyzing the development of civil war, terrorism and of gangs. The behavior of society as well as the behavior of individuals are described as in related to the degree of social cohesion or integration. Terrorism and banditism are regarded as stages in social dynamics. People are classified according to their needs and abilities. A stereotype characterized by few needs and abilities is coined Golem. Golems have lost their individuality. They are potential terrorists and gang leaders. Golems sympathize with terrorism and encourage it. The leader influences the degree of cohesion or social integration. The concept of the work is a more general one than expected from its title alone. In addition to explaining the development and behavior of society by changes in entropy, it permits predictions to be made on its future development. The work is useful for all those who wish to understand social dynamics, and particularly for sociologists, psychologists, criminologists, politicians and economists.
