After catastrophe strikes

When a catastrophe occurs the key event is the instantaneous ineffectuality of the ruling elite. Authority breaks down in the first moments of a crisis and all that's there to service the situation is legitimacy – people helping each other. 
What is on display after a catastrophe strikes is what society might look like without the insidious shaping of the human heart the governing authorities impose on their subjects for the sake of making it easier for them then to impose order on the society.
