Revolutionary and Counter-revolutionary World-views: Two Models of Understanding Sociotechnics as an Overall Therapy of Interhuman Life
Revolutionary and counter-revolutionary world-views are presented as 'militant and competing outlooks' - zero-sum game players' world-views in the war over a character of communal life system. These are antithetical views. Their subjects are social forces acting in their antagonistic interests and aspirations. The world-views are presented as two, fundamentally different models of understanding sociotechnics as an overall therapy of human life. A therapy through social engineering model deriving from the revolutionary world-view could be named a model under the banner of 'utopia' (the therapy is a well thought-out alternative order) and a therapy through social engineering model deriving from counter-revolutionary world-view could be named a model under the banner of 'ideology' (the therapy consists in applying a tried-and-tested pattern form the past, which enables to preserve identity and to combine change with continuity).
