Summary/Abstract: The global ideological context, just like the immediate, situational context, together construct a certain socio-historical reality which the individual is compelled to adopt in order to interpret information and construct images, beliefs, and representations. Even when the social context changes, most of the social actors preserve both their collective gesticulation as well as their strategies of disconnection, practices of dissimulation, or style of adaptation. This paper attempts to highlight the psychosocial mechanism of the phenomenon of resistance to change on the example of communist totalitarianism.
