Well even if one does take into consideration the premise "nature is a dictatorship" - you can't help but think that those of the dominant class will not take that as just another cue to create rigid draconian "solutions" - I get the sense from this installment of the Zeitgeist series that I would NOT want the narrator being in charge of anything besides maybe consulting. There is no feeling to his narration, and the solutions he proposes, while giving credence to a more robust and vibrant human existence seem rather devoid of such in their implementations. Everything scientifically managed with the ASSUMPTION that some sort of centralized system will not be subject to the same age-old issues of the nature of the corruption of centralized power. Science is NOT objective - it has always been subject to the whims, prejudices and worldviews of those using it for their ends. I think decentralized power needs to be studied alongside the general overstanding of the "gaia" hypothesis of the earth/universe being one conscious inter-connected being. The power dynamics inherent in centralized human systems which wish to control huge areas of geography is the fly in the ointment of the narrator's visions.
