I believe this topic has been discussed but I realized I need more clarity.
Let’s suppose I have a story in which the government is very concerned about keeping control of the populace (Order). Meanwhile a group of rebels responds to this by creating their own underground, anarchist economy (Chaos). The OS Concern is Understanding but I can’t illustrate the Goal yet.
How do I figure out/decide which of the Elements (Order and Chaos) is the Focus, and which is the Direction? The way it is in my mind now, each group views the other group’s element as the Symptom and their own behavior as the Response.
Am I missing something?
