What will government and business be like in the 21st century as people start searching for and finding wisdom?

I played an episode of NPR’s On Point, with Tom Ashbrook, that examined the people in Muncie, Indiana, and how people are losing faith in the political process and civic engagement. I also played a TED talk by British Prime Minister David Cameron about the new age of government as states run out of money but people acquire the power of information that governments previously controlled. Government will work with human nature to improve community instead of trying to change human nature as it attempted, largely successfully, to do in the 20th century. Finally, I played a clip from Craiglist Foundation Boot Camp about how to engage successfully with local government.
