Social conflict is an indispensable attribute of historical being. The accumulation of a critical charge in society, expressed in the conflict between creator and manager (intellectual and ruler), which also resonates among the average person, leads to a general radicalization of public sentiment, which is fraught with a social revolution. In its course, the political counter-elite is transformed into a revolutionary elite, which takes over the leadership of the revolutionary process. Revolution is one of the options for resolving social conflicts. The optimal model of the political system can be considered one in which the resolution of conflicts occurs with the participation of all interested elites and always publicly, which provides control from both intellectuals and ordinary people. If such a model (it can be arbitrarily called the “civil society” model) defines the basic algorithms of a particular society, the social revolution in it becomes redundant, and the struggle of ontological projects takes on less extreme forms.
