What causes society to fall apart?

We're supposed to treat "gridlock" like other modern conditions such as alienation, high crime, dumbing down, isolation, selfishness, narcissism and dysfunction -- as if it were a cold we caught, or a solar ray, or something else beyond our control.

It just happens!!! shrug

But the truth is that every single one of our problems can be traced to the incompetence of individuals. Not all are equally competent, which is why they bleat loudest about how we're all equal:

Boris Kerner of the Daimler Automotive Group in Germany has developed an explanation for how gridlock occurs. A preprint of his new model can be viewed in a preprint at the website arXiv. Surprisingly, his new model suggests gridlock can occur even when traffic flow is relatively light. The culprit? Someone in the line of traffic near a light signal slows down, triggering a chain of events that can reduce the speed of all traffic behind it, build up successively longer lines of vehicles with every green-yellow-red cycle, and eventually lead to gridlock. - PhysOrg

One person spaces out, and we all pay. Again and again and again.
