Via Cryppix:

"P. Sorokin wrote about it in the 1960s: “The dominant type of an emerging society and culture will be probably neither capitalist nor communist, but a sui generis type, which we will designate as an integral type. This type will be intermediate between capitalist and communist orders and ways of life. It should include most of the positive values and be free of serious defects of each type. Moreover, the emerging integral system in its full development will probably not be a simple eclectic mixture of specific characteristics of both types, but a unified system of integral cultural values, social institutions and an integral type of a personality that are substantially different from the capitalist and communist models”."
