The Social System
Author: Sergey Kronin
People do not understand the direct connection between the fate of state and condition of the social system. On the level of the mind these connections are abstract and not obvious. So, the government as a representative of the state keeps in mind that its stability depends on how people are pleased with it. In order to account for its existence to the people the state have to explain what is it doing. When economic conditions are well developed surplus result begins to store but the state does not develop, and there are no outside threats. Two main directions appear in functioning of apparatus: social politics as support to the weakest members of society and offender as an internal enemy of system. So, the state starts to defend the common people from the criminal elements of all ranks and grades. Generally, it is a public performance a "witchcraft scare" that all society is watching.
Who is the offender? Is he a man who is engaged in his business and creates something? Of course he is not. He is a man who is not applied in anything in system and who doesn’t have. As a fact, he needs only "food". May be it is state that through the social politics creates circumstances under which a man can not do anything, isn’t it? Surely, it creates. The best conditions for idleness fall on the moments of economic growth of society and philanthropic social politics. And the state can not carry these idlers away with anything on the reason of own stagnation. The alimentation of the poor is a very good thing in society’s eyes. In fact it is accustoming these people to the position of idler freeloading on the "product of labour", created by other people. It means that the state redistributes the product: takes away large part of it from its creators and gives the "beggars". This governmental position of social equity or other words the position of "Robin Hood" leads to the fact that people who can create becomes to be demotivated to do anything: exerting much of their strength they are living not much better than the "idlers".
Well, the most important part of the state affairs is a fight against crime. A great amount of ministries, departments, structures and people are involved in search and punishment of the offender. If the offender is excluded from the system as an element, what will all these people and state structures be doing? So, how can the state account for its existence? Thus, from the one side social policy creates the offender and another part of the state is catching him. And everyone has what to do.
Antonio Meneghetti wrote that "it’s curiously enough, but the offender is included to the social system". Crime is one of the supporting points of the system. Just try to except the thief from the society: a huge budget is based on his existence. Windows and doors defend us not only from cold and hot, but from the thief first of all. All security services, police, justice, headed by respectable and worthy persons exist only because the offender "feed" them. Thus, these important state institutions which are endued by social opinion with certain merits are based on the existence of corrupted, dirty and pathological things".*
So, when the state structure goes out of date, it may prove necessity of own existence only by supporting the poor people, by improving the standard of people living and fight against growing crime that is created by the state implicitly.
It should be understood that exactly these groups supported socially will destroy the state at the end. As the beggar groups are being habituated to the public goods they don’t want to achieve anything by themselves but they want to have neither more nor less than the best members of society. In actual fact proliferation of these begging groups creates revolutionary conditions, when they want redistribution of "surplus labor product", it means that revolutionary situation begins. The events in Paris demonstrated it, when expatriates, inhabitants of suburbs and outskirts of the city were burning out of cars, trashing stores...
Thus, the state trying to keep itself creates the conditions of self-destruction by increasing the amount of "collective goods predators", who are actual or potential "beggars". It is being made at the expense of reduction amount of those who are "carried away by work...".
