Posts Tagged ‘Social Order’

The collapse of social order occurs when the psychological barrier that keeps people in check collapses when conditions warrant.  Once people realize that 911 can’t handle all of the calls, or that police are unwilling or unable to respond during a disaster scenario; the breakdown of law and order occurs.  Examples of the collapse of social order include the L.A. Riots after the Rodney King verdict was announced, and the looting and violence following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

Three primary factors that can contribute to the decimation of social order are lack of food, lack of water, and lack of money.  The collapse of social order is extremely dangerous because it is a frame of mind; and when that frame of mind is altered or removed due to a panic/disaster situation, law and order can cease to exist.
