Go to the next level means the replacement of old, dysfunctional system of social management on a new, efficient. In Russia, the change in the type of social order that precedes the recent crisis occurred in 1917 year, and the duration of the last completed stage of development of society in our country was approximately 100 years. It should be noted that the estimated duration of the phases between successive crises is highly conditional, so both in terms of the dialectic can not accurately distinguish one stage, stage of development of society against another specific historical date.
