Contrary to what you may hear from some college proffessors, the world's people do not change so gradually that you don't notice it. the world's fault lines are quite real, and they run right between greece and turkey, right through the middle of sudan, between ethiopia and eritrea, China and vietnam, etc. the last thing the people on those fault lines need is the lunatic fringe notion that a team of intellectuals from the first world could come up with a perfect system, because whenever one of these perfect systems is implimemented on these fault lines, Russia's great purges or cambodia's killing fields ensue. I'm not going to go on about how the internet is playing a role in the arab spring, but the industrial revolution only initially effected a few countries in western europe, while the digital revolution is effecting the entire world economy immediately, which makes it more like the Neolithic revolution.
