This degradation, being dependent upon social reinforcement, would first occur to the hyper-socialized. That being, those that have spent the majority of their lives within social institutions, such as public schools, or contemporary universities. This erosion of categories, being a reflexive reaction to perceived chaos, would first occur to the categories that the hyper-socialized are temperamentally predisposed to perceive — that being, the ones that they use to identify themselves socially. Race, sex, and gender, no longer representing words to distinguish between our immutable characteristics — to those that view reality as being too complex to be understood, these stop being words meant to identify groups, and start becoming tools to combat confusion. "Dangerous" — to those who've developed a dependency on social affirmation, will eventually become synonymous with 'non-socially affirming,' and will eventually become a label used as a means to justify violence. By virtue of their reinforcement of each other, these groups will reaffirm each other's delusions, and their confusion will escalate into hysteria before they eventually culminate into mobs. As the mobs become too large to affirm each member's specific predispositions, the mobs will separate into factions before eventually culminating into mobs again. As the rest of society views this chaos from afar, we'll handle it in the only way we know how, and create groups, mobs, languages, and identities of our own, all the while regressing, and conjuring up the same chaos that we had set out to avoid. Before long, we'll roam the streets as our ancestors did — hunched over narrowly, grouped into tribes, worshipping spirits, fighting over food, all the while doing our best to not upset any tigers.
