This is a research paper which focuses on modeling an infrastructure of human social-binders based on the involvement of individuals of high intellectual and organizational capacity left outside the mainstream of social or community policies in a state of cultural displacement. Modern transnational practices, based on a technologically-supported network, leave a great number of valuable human resources in a state of unemployment, disconnectedness, disengagement and thus, vulnerable to mental damage, crime or destructive actions. Instead of making them useful and sparing them as cultural binders in the complex construction of multi-colored global entity, preventing hostile streams from causing global human-inflicted damage.
