Social entropy is the measure of disorder within a macro- or microsystem.
Social entropy occurs when society loses social cohesion, becomes fragmented and loses the ability to reproduce itself. There are various indicators of social entropy, including extreme inequality, unequal access to education and health care, and social and cultural participation.
The greater the social entropy, the greater the amount of “social energy” in the form of specialized work skills to reproduce the subsystem society.
Characteristics of social syntropy are the degree of creativity, freedom and self-organization of its members.
