Social Gaming and Control by Dislocations

  • S. T. Jutila


Social gaming and control can be imposed by powerful political agents through impact dislocations at discrete points in time. Each dislocation represents a social (economic) behavior modification with a concomitant new subsequent social dynamics until the next dislocation. The overall discrete sequence of dislocations experienced by a society is generated by the impacts generated by all the agents as they attempt to sway the over-all social process in the direction favorable to the particular goals and objectives of each individual agent.
