Within the framework of the system of categories and principles of the St. Petersburg scientific school of social synergetics, problems of relationship between managing the course of history and determining its main vector, as well as freedom and responsibility, “correctness” and “success” of a subject choosing options for social evolution, are involved in research. People through whom “evolutionary mechanisms” are realized as the main carriers of evolutionary changes, significantly modify “causal factors” due to their consciousness and freedom, which, being in a synergistic sense, are defined as a specific analogue of casualty, as a factor that changes the ratio of evolutionary opportunities of system. Freedom only arises in the conditions of super selection, that is, it occurs in the conditions of control, on the part of a subject, over the variety of selection forms, where “slyness” of human mind manifests itself. The degree of choice “correctness” is determined subjectively on the basis of proximity to the dominant social ideal. The criterion of stable reproduction of the social ideal can be an optimal amount of sacrifices made in the name of its realization. The objective aspect of choice is related to the concept of “luck”, and is determined by the proximity to the super attractor — the unique set of evolutionary opportunities concerning developing the social system.
