History is the expression of the collective psychology — the psychic flow of a society that results from their collective ideas, values and sentiments. The strongest influence on the collective psychology is the mentality of the dominant social class. Class dominance is not static, but is characterized by a rotation of classes into and out of power. This movement of classes in and out of dominance follows a cyclic pattern — from laborers to warriors to intelligentsia, clergy to merchants/capitalists. This rotational pattern is called the social cycle. There are five basic ways in which a society may undergo transitional movement from one era of the social cycle to another; it can come through natural change, evolution, revolution, counter-evolution, or counter-revolution.
