SOCIAL chaos theory / Chapter 2: entropy and social chaos in Venezuela / ISBN 9789801241312 makes more than ten years Venezuela passes through a scenario of social chaos, although paradoxically it’s a chaos by stages and in slow motion. The Fifth Republic is the name of this entropy and policies undertaken since 1999, if a crisis instruments, considered necessary from a revolutionary point, qualified according to opponents forced to model proposed from the Executive branch. Regardless the ideological posture that assumes, is a conflict that has been planned, organized and executed following the doctrinal guidelines of the art of war. 1. An epistemological approach necessary. Entropy (a concept that we define in our essay Venezuela and laws of Social chaos) is a dynamic event that grows incessantly at the fundamental structures of the current Venezuelan society. Social entropy is based on the second principle of thermodynamics, which predicts that with time enough, occurs the irreversible decay of all social structures, thus ordered will be it, sooner or later giving way to disorder.
But while this principle is lapidary and turn, still agitated our around thousands of complex social systems that show a high degree of order in one way or another. Life in all its manifestations is an example. Social institutions, also. The emergence of complex systems in society, that we identify as social institutions, NGO s, parties and groups, apparently acting in a similar way to the structures of systems closed, common in the nature of things, which are influenced by the principles of the exact sciences, but against the grain of those societies in both open systems, they exchange information as well as energy and matter. From simple social systems, even in those away from the institutional balance, the life of societies is autoorganiza in surprising ways. The second law is imposed, But meanwhile a social Vortex manifests itself: the spontaneous complex emergency.
