George Monbiot today. He\’s half right.
Simple systems are indeed horribly vulnerable to disruption. More complex systems can trade their way out of such disruptions. He\’s certainly right here.
Aha! says George. But a system can become too complex and thus trip up over things which a simpler system would not!
And, amazingly, we are in that too complex society and we must become simpler. In just exactly and precisely the manner which George already thinks society must change.
