Within the developed nations deterioration in the basis of society, as dramatically demonstrated by the Lehman collapse, has reached extreme levels, and currently the formation of pro-change agents is approaching a decisive stage. Here, we will construct a complex systems 'criticality' model, apply it to social change, and examine its reliability and validity. The model derived a power law distribution of the output of social change. The validity of the model was verified by examining vote shares of parties in Japan. Based on the results of this examination, we propose a new quantitative strategy “information entropy enhancement” for social change.
