Adam Curtis on self-organizing systems

What the anti-cuts movement has done without realising is adopt an idea of how to order the world without hierarchies, a machine theory that leads to a static managerialism. It may be very good for organising creative and self-expressive demonstrations, but it will never change the world.

Some straw-man arguments; but enough fact and sharp analysis to make it well worth reading. I always wondered what happened to Biosphere II.
