The principle of rising conflict elevator in the context of Russian


This article deals with the social conflicts and contradictions which have functional, structural and systematic levels. The author highlights that it is necessary to solve the contradictions timely when they are at the low level, because they are less dangerous for a society and its social institutions. Neglecting of these contradictions results in creation of horizontal contradictions which in their turn form the contradictions of a higher level. Thus, the aggregate of low-level (functional) contradictions generates the structural contradiction, which can further generate systematic contradictions and conflicts. This process was named by the author the principle of "rising conflict elevator". This principle shows through the conflictogenity of the society in the conditions of Russian transformation.
