Revolution and Repression Archetype Poster



Systems archetypes are multi-loop, causal loop diagrams that represent behavior seen commonly in complex systems. They can be lenses through which to view systems more clearly. In the Revolution and Repression archetype, those in power implement policies. Some see the policies as unjust and take action that is seen as a threat by those in power, leading to more repressive policies. The more repressive policies lend legitimacy to those that initially took action, increasing their numbers. If the spiral continues it can result in revolution.


The full-color posters are professionally printed on cardstock and laminated, with metal grommets for easy hanging.  The poster dimensions are 24 x 36 inches.
