You say you want a revolution?

A limited revolution might be triggered in one system, but this might leave the other systems untouched or only slightly irritated. Those slightly irritated systems will then most likely adjust and carry on their operations. A political revolution might not significantly disturb the economic system, or vice versa.

Autopoietic Function Systems

Due to functional differentiation, modern man talks business, avoids politics or religion in leisurely conversation, considers the buying or selling of political or legal decisions as corruption, and, more often than not, tends to associate the imposition of religious imperatives upon scientific knowledge with a revival of the age of the Holy Inquisition  

The Panama Papers

The global economy is an autopoietic function system, and it cannot be controlled by governments. It will adapt to any legislation designed to prevent tax inversion or tax sheltering. The effort to stop this trend is kind of like the “war on drugs” or a war on cockroaches or mosquitos. These wars cannot be won because the opponents are too adaptable.
