Social viruses are the consequence of the use of anti-intelligence. Anti-intelligence is a “virus”. Anti-intelligence is the use of intelligence without ethical purposes. It substitutes ethical intelligence with a utopia (this utopia is homological with to proteins viruses use).
The mutation of social viruses is produced by the functionality or dysfunctionality that the utopia poses in the environment. If the utopia can take advantage of the conditions of the environment there is no need to change. If it is dysfunctional, then utopias change and thus the complete structure of the social virus mutates.
The Destruction Power of Social Viruses
We have discovered four levels of jeopardy of viruses:
- Social viruses that install in a social entity but remain as marginal elements that validate the structure of the institution or culture.
- Social viruses that work at a lower or different ethical level that degrade the institutional or cultural activity.
- Social viruses that work at a lower, different and incompatible ethical level that provoke an extreme degradation of the institutional or cultural activity.
- Social viruses that work at an incompatible ethical and functional level that provoke the destruction of the institutional and cultural perception. They provoke a “back to individualism” effects.
