Problem

Unadapted community structures


Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Nature:
The rapid pace of technological innovation in the 20th century has occasioned rapid social change without accompanying changes in community patterns and structures. Because of increased media communications, no community has escaped the impact of this change.
Incidence:
In rural areas, the young are torn between the need to help their family maintain their land and the need to get an education; the task of village leadership is made increasingly difficult with the coming of a monied economy and inflationary prices; and the sense of total village identity and cooperation is threatened by increased mobility which allows individuals and families to pursue their own private interests.
Problem Type:
F: Fuzzy exceptional problems
