Revolutionary Fallacy ?

Sic semper tyrannis. Revolutions solve nothing; new tyrants eventually (and inevitably) percolate up through the new webs of hierarchy and bureaucracy.  Revolutionary change is for this reason insufficient and intellectually bankrupt.  Shallow innovation is replication, recombination; deep innovation is axiomatic, distributed, systemic.

The costs of disassembly are vaster than any plausible benefits.  What is the point of applying a sentential logic of confrontation and conflict to a system that is so deeply composed of and dependent upon these things that it will merely assimilate, absorb, harness and exploit that same turbulence through which it already expresses itself ?  There are more effective heuristics to remediate entropy.
