Society is nothing but a dogma. All of its power and its weakness comes from this fact. Believing in it makes it strong. Questioning it makes it weak. It is the individual that is impresses by society and it is the human that society is afraid of. The one reassures it, the other one endangers it. As a dogma, society is based on people’s gullibility. It is also based on lack of historical knowledge; and, thus, it transforms its omnipresence into omniscience. The social system knows everything and deals with everything. Regarding its bureaucracy it is nothing but a latent form of dictatorship. Besides, it is for this reason that the best forms of realization, in the strict sense of the term, are authoritarian regimes which can not prevent themselves from committing a crime against Humanity. When authority does not suffice, it has to be helped by barbarity. The latter one appears as an ultimate social tool. When the system faces cultural or religious resistance, whose existence puts into question the sovereign hierarchy, then it changes attitude and takes things in hand in a barbaric way. It interprets these forms of resistance as internal frictions. So, it is all about a logistics arrangement from the social point of view. Then, an ultimate solution consists of using means of total war against a disarmed population. In this framework, it only applies its own dogma. In a massive way, society imposes its law without allowing the slightest questioning. The chronological series of these crimes is long, but it is necessary to have them in mind to comprehend what this means for Humanity. For, each one of these crimes is a wound characterizing the structure of Humanity’s resistance facing temporal intrusions. The cases of genocide against Armenians, Pontian Greeks, Ukrainians, Jews, Cambodians are paradigms. Even though the same scheme of extermination as well as Stanton’s phases are followed, each time these cases of genocide offer structural elements to Humanity and not to authoritarian regimes only. For, barbarity of the latter ones is also measured by the victims’ and the Righteous’ resistance. Without human resistance genocide committed by society would have been a perfect crime. However, each time people revolt and fight against this act of barbarity. Humanity resembles nature. We do not conceive its reality until we destroy it. And it does not become palpable until we resist this destruction. Victims and Righteous do not acquire this status until this act of barbarity attempts to make them disappear. Since they have no place in the dogma, they have to be erased by the system. Thus, Humanity appears in an efficient way through the resistance groups. For, at a local level it is these people that we call Humanity. These pockets of resistance are temporal loops refusing system’s linearization. They appear in a form of reaction, because they correspond to cybernetic feedback. This backwards loop in relation to linear evolution allows us to counter the system which acts as a real erasing module. These local memories are not, though, but tips of icebergs profoundly submerged into the ocean of Humanity. Their actions are nothing but revelations, because the bottom is not accessible without specific research which puts into question the society’s dogma.
