Abstract:

The paper presents the view that those groups which are consuming valuables and improving in more rapid rates, numbers, and capibilities, particularly if at rapid or accelerating rates, appear more likely to be competitive toward and to conflict with others, with those status quo-defending groups which perceive them as rivals. In the U.S., increased conflict is likely between the previously inarticulate, politically ineffective, silent minorities and their natural rivals for status within the social system. Conflict looks most likely also between the most developed countries, such as the U.S. and the Soviet Union, or between one of them and a nearest rival. Author
