Ha egy adott közösség nem tudja elbeszélni a helyzetét és megbeszélni a teendőit, akkor nem tud összehangoltan és átgondoltan cselekedni, következésképpen előbb vagy utóbb széthullik.

A Nyugat „nyelve” meghasadt, egymást kölcsönösen kizáró elbeszélési módok vívják „sehonnan sehová” vezető önpusztító küzdelmüket. Eddig ez az önpusztító küzdelem főként Európát sújtotta, és a globális véleményhatalmi gépezetek sikerrel akadályozták meg, hogy ez a meghasítottság az Amerikai Egyesült Államokat illetően is nyilvánvalóvá váljon.
