We all know what chaos is. It carries the popular meaning of a massive and dangerous breakdown of order or consensus. We see it all around us in the world: dysfunctional individuals, dysfunctional families, dysfunctional businesses and economies, dysfunctional governments, dysfunctional societies and failed states. The causes range from wars to natural disasters to the unpredictable behavior of human beings and the unpredictable behavior of nature. The initial emotional reaction of people is one of fear, denial and aggressive assault against the disorder.
