A proposal for cybernetic balance, Larry Nuet:
"I propose that humankind has grown in terms of population and global distribution to form cultural/societal systems where the cybernetic competencies of both individual human persons and human social systems are not adequate to “handle” the information flows required for sustainability and viability of the whole of humankind, and major subsystems. Humanity must be designed to account for the real distribution of cybernetic competencies of humans, even when uplifted.
In a new humanity, humans agree to make social or societal decisions only if they adequately comprehend the issues and consequences."
