The purpose of this paper is to compare five traditional cultures, evaluating the premise that in-depth information on situations of stress -- from inside the system or from the environment -- should elucidate the factors which endanger a system. Where are the most vulnerable spots? What mechanisms are inherent in a social system to maintain its persistence? What agents must be mobilized to prevent a breakup of the traditional culture?
