This article suggests ways on the initiation or participation of individual or group transitions without having to wait for political changes or seek support from the State or other main elements of the predominant social system. Those who desire changes are in these times of main different and often divergent schools. Each has its programme but majority as yet incline to more or less revolutionary methods that the idealism and experiences of the young is tempted to realize its aims by force and use this against obstacles. For students of contemporary social evolution, no one but themselves can answer the question on the possible outlook on social transition. One way of testing our graphic scheme is by seeing how far each of the examples of constructive social endeavor may be interpreted in terms of diagrams. Main step is the rebound from the past mis-instruction and its verbalistic empaperment. This can be done by way of any and every science or from practice of their related arts and applications. One learns through interest. The advance of every science is towards graphic presentment. War is the most instructive of all social transitions. For the introduction to social studies there opens form this the adjacent outlook over the varied aspects of the nationalism, oratory and war.
