And if the rich have a foolish model which tells them that they need to shake us up with a bit of 'chaos' to make us take responsibility then I think they will be in for a shock.

I was thinking about the Maya cities in Yucatan. When the Spanish arrived there were maybe a million Maya living in the jungle, but none in the cities, which had fallen into disrepair. For some reason a couple of hundred years earlier they had just decided to stop working there, and all moved out to live a different way.
