Summary/Abstract: Tolerance has been traditionally associated with the friendly treatment of followers of other religions (e.g., Catholics versus Protestants, Christians versus Muslims), or the fair treatment of members of other races demonstrated by members of the white majority. The term “tolerance” is used rather less often in regard to regulating relations between unequal social partners, for example, between the owners of estates and serfs, or between the managers and owners of factories and their salaried employees, between educated but casually employed “precariats” and global corporations, and even more rarely – in the democratization of relations of doctors and patients or professors and students. However, it seems that it is in this category of behaviour, deserving of being labelled tolerance, which regulates work, and thus consumption, that sweeping changes are occurring, which we can read as a sensitive barometer of changes in an increasingly complex “tsunami” of interactive and communicative processes.
