I did not claim this; Lardner has posited it in his article. Let's keep the focus on Lardner, because I have not drawn any conclusions from his research. I do think, however, that the studies he cites could be used in support of an argument for structuring future societies nonheirarchically, which is hardly a new idea among futurists.

Take care,
