The Super Entity Revisited

Here is a comment I just posted on the 'philosophyofmetrics' site, in response to the post 'The New Congress of Vienna':

This article may appear unconnected, but way down in the text we see the phrase ‘super entity’ (the name given to the phenomenon of the consolidation of wealth by scientists who studied it) so we see the future plans laid out:

Not many people will be able to see that it was all engineered that way. Most will see what happened over the last 200 years as a mix of cock-up theory, nationalism, ignorance and greed.

Has the ‘super entity’, however, really taken on board resource depletion? Their future plans don’t differ greatly from their former plans. Is this their Achilles’ heel? Will Mother Earth refuse to play ball and teach them a lesson for their hubris?
