The development of network society (the network revolution) in the present-day world necessitates the establishment of networked regulatory organizations that can exert a positive influence on this process. They represent analogs of biomolecular chaperons that function in the living cell. Such social chaperons can design optimal scenarios of the network revolution. They can take account of various possible organizational options (paradigms) of network structures. Chaperons can creatively use paradigms that function in biological systems ranging from unicellular organisms to schooling fish, social insects, and apes. Social chaperons can contribute to their implementation using the whole spectrum of possible strategies of promoting expedient network scenarios and convincing political leaders and government regulators of their importance for humankind.
The author defines the basic concepts of the problem area, the opportunities and the need to manage transformation of the Russian social space. He formulates the probable general and other objectives of managing social space transformation, defines objects and subjects of management. He identifies five main areas of the social space transformation, for each of which specific objectives are formulated.
The paper studies the dangerous phenomenon of institutional dehumanization that leads to social destruction and stagnation in social development, to blocking the ways of its further historical development. Targeted impact on a person from meta-level of a systemic organization through a global digital platform allows to distort imperceptibly the structure of his needs, which leads to the loss by individuals of empathy and of possibility to implement activities within social and state construction. Institutional dehumanization is characterized by manifestations of terrifying violence, various forms of deviant and delinquent behavior. That is why, it is used as the main chaosintroducing component of the hybrid wars allowing imperceptibly to destroy the sovereignty of state formations, depriving them of the possibility to maintain their original concept and implement accumulation of their own unique ways of existence, state system, culture and science, management structure, as well as their individual and unique mental constructions serving as a model unifying results of socially significant activities. The antidote to dehumanization can become the state support in developing higher moral and ethical needs of the population as dominating in the hierarchy of an individual and society.
The paper presents the problems of the world modeling by a man and coordination of meanings between different people in the process of communication. The model of the world (as well as the subject field model) consists of three components: the language one and two multimodal — individual and socialized. The world model of every human being is a unique structure and, despite some their similarity for members of the same society, requires constant synchronization during communication of people, which is realized in the process of dialogue. In addition to information mechanism (synchronization by key concepts of subject areas) intentional mechanism (determination) is involved in the dialogue, and this mechanism is realized through personalities of communicating subjects. The work of these mechanisms is disclosed through the example of collective activity and the quality of communication literacy. Communication literacy of people, as shown in the work, essentially depends on the linguistic component, i.e. on the ability to work with text in a natural language. This means any person himself should be able to write qualitatively and work with meanings, as well as to understand meaning of texts written by others. It is especially important in the context of wide spread of different network structures on IT and telecom platforms (from social and expert networks of “collective intelligence” to instant messaging networks).
The article presents the strategic analysis results of threats and risks to Russia resulting from deterioration of the foreign policy and economic situation. The analysis is conducted in a wide context of the world development, global crisis, technological prospects and geopolitical situation. The article proposes recommendations aimed at countering threats, at strengthening economic and political power of Russia, its international prestige and influence. The proposed system of measures is structured both by terms (for short, medium and long-term perspective) and by areas of activity.
The paper shows the prospects and forks of information technology (IT) evolution, when business and IT mutually influence each other and develop each other, changing economy and society. The human factor is not just becoming a key element, but the vector of IT development. The possibilities and boundaries of network collective intelligence and social technologies are shown. The concept of “intellectual deposits” is disclosed.
Decentralized, distributed network structures possess significant creative and innovative potential in solving various problems of modern society, including organization of interdisciplinary creative laboratories, interactive techniques in education and the establishment of inter- and intrafirm networks. Of special interest are biological models (paradigms), i.e., organizational options for network structures in diverse biological systems. These models can be used creatively to establish networks in various spheres of human society. It is emphasized that the dissemination of network structures in society promotes the implementation of the principles of socialist economy.
Network wars are the wars of new, sixth generation. The purpose of the present paper — to show the complex nature of warfare on a broad range of life areas.
The paper analyzes the actors purposely using hybrid wars to block historical development process — systemogenesis. It shows the role of the global digital technology platform in managing society destruction.
