So as a very simple example, complexity structurally demands trial. And also innately breaks up large populations in preference for smaller ones; large ant hills and wolf packs split at certain sizes. Actually, complexity demands it.

So, on a very base level, globalism is too hierarchical and statist for complexity. Globalism, socialism, communism, will never work because it drives complexity out of a society. Which will kill it.

Put another way, a king’s power is in upholding the rule of law. If he amasses too much power, regulating business, property, etc., he relegates his fellow citizens to robots and kills complexity, and then kills society.
