Social psychological service system is complex, and the construction of social psychological service system is a complex systematic project. From the perspective of history, management, philosophy, society and psychology, social psychological service is not only the inevitable result of the further development of mental health education, but also the practical needs of social governance. In the final analysis, it is a practical activity based on people, for people and serving people. It should not only take into account the complex society and people’s social attributes, but also follow the general principles of psychology. Social psychological services are not equal to mental health services, social risk prevention and control or psychological counseling services. They are more than eliminating psychological problems, and the service cannot rely too much on psychological professionals. The scientific construction of social psychological service system needs an all-round integration from the aspects of concept, mechanism, resources, content and ways, so as to better serve people and society.

The construction of social psychological service system is an important measure to innovate social governance in China, which aims to solve the problems of social mentality cultivation and psychological construction. However, whether the “meaning of oughtness” of this concept can be implemented in the construction practice all over the country remains to be discussed. This study collected the network text data of the actual work situation in 12 pilot areas of social psychological service system construction in China, and coded the data according to 6 primary indicators such as organizational structure and work mode and 23 secondary indicators under them to describe the “actual situation” of construction in various places. The text analysis results show that: (1) the content orientation of the construction of social psychological service system in each pilot area has a serious tendency of “mental health”; (2) on the whole, psychosocial services only focus on “risk prevention and control”; (3) the relationship between social psychological service and social governance is misplaced. In short, there is a big gap between the “actual situation” and “meaning of oughtness” of the construction of social psychological service system all over the country.

The concern for energy use and energy efficiency is a question of vital relevance and urgency in the current world. A search in Google Scholar with the term “energy use” produces more than 2 million results. If the search is restricted to the term “tourism,” more than 220,000 results are obtained and if we use together with the terms “energy use” and “corporate social responsibility” (CSR), we get more than 19,000 results. Nevertheless, the authors have been unable to identify scientific studies centered on the problem of energy use in the area of the tourist sector and CSR. The aim of this paper is to identify the most usual subjects or topics which appear in the scientific literature analyzed, evaluate the documentary sources that show a greater degree of presence and which can be considered as more relevant and influential and to point out who is the most relevant and prestigious authors who are currently writing about the topics considered.

The ‘post-truth’ society has produced a compound of two sets of new revolutionaries: We have known about the ‘white trash’ for about 400 years. The ‘deplorables’ represent the new Hillbillies left out by the ravages of globalized economy; ‘basement dwellers’ are reluctant liberals unable to confront the new realities of a hopelessly divided nation.
