PurposeThis paper aims to present the basic assumptions for creation of social lasers and attract attention of other researchers (both from physics and socio-political science) to the problem of modeling of Stimulated Amplification of Social Actions (SASA).Design/methodology/approachThe model of SASA and its analysis are based on the mathematical formalism of quantum thermodynamics and field theory (applied outside of physics).FindingsThe presented quantum-like model provides the consistent operational model of such complex socio-political phenomenon as SASA.Research limitations/implicationsThe model of SASA is heavily based on the use of the notion of social energy. This notion has not yet been formalized.Practical implicationsEvidence of SASA (“functioning of social lasers”) is rapidly accumulating, from color revolutions to such democratically structured protest actions as Brexit and the recent election of Donald Trump as the President of the USA. The corresponding socio-political studies are characterized by diversity of opinions and conclusions. The presented social laser model can be used to clarify these complex socio-political events and even predict their possibility.Social implicationsSASA is the powerful source of social instability. Understanding its informational structure and origin may help to stabilize the modern society.Originality/valueApplication of the quantum-like model of laser technology in social and political sciences is really a novel and promising approach.
