POLITICAL CATASTROPHES
by Joost van Steenis


         

A series of articles about the necessity of causing political catastrophes in the struggle to change power relations in the world. These catastrophes will change the minds of masspeople as well as the mind of elitepeople. 
See also chapter 11 (Jumps in the brain and and in our thinking) of my book "The Scarists". In Chapter D of the "Mathematical Chip", the appendix of the same book you can find some mathematical background about Catastrophes.

The comments in the short articles of the series Letters of an Autonomous Thinker often make use of the findings published in the series Political Catastrophes.
