The evolutionary process is always the unity and interaction of two tendencies which balance each other - the stability and instability. Both groups in their contradictory unity are necessary for the development of the system. At the same time, there are various forms of conflict resolution between the above tendencies, and one of such forms is to achieve balance. But if one of the tendencies dominates the other, the development will stop. Even in the case when the stability prevails over the instability, the development of the system is exposed to an exceptional damage. The social history of humankind for centuries demonstrates a confrontation between two types of social dynamics. In one of them there is a strong guiding action to the ideas of natural selection and the struggle for existence as an engine of progress. Further ascent of humanity is seen by struggle and displacement of the weak and unfit forms. The purpose "to displace" and not “to develop” won’t be able to ensure the survival in the long term. This is the technical dynamics, commercial, parasitic, leading to the establishment of a rigid unipolar world order.To achieve the harmonious development of humankind, the concept of sustainable development refers to the need to reduce the gap between the rich and poor, and make greater efforts to protect the environment.
