In the video linked below, Bill Whittle describes the evolution of man in terms of three “meta-changes”.
Agriculture and Industry each caused traumatic dislocations in the pattern of human life. Bill explains the progressive movement in terms of human response to life patterns in the industrial age.
We are immersed once more in the dislocation of familiar life patterns as we transition from late industrial into the “digital age”.
Whittle explains that the attributes of this information age are transforming men into “dispersed, decentralized, independent, interconnected, free agents.”
In this model, economic structure is once again becoming “horizontal, independent, light, fast, agile, decentralized, local, smaller, cheaper.”
Whittle postulates that government for this “third age” will have to become “fast, decentralized, local, smaller and cheaper” as well.

If Bill is right, economic forces of the digital era will naturally move us toward the government designed by our Founders and structured in our Constitution (prior to Reconstruction and the changes of the progressive era).
We must survive the death-rattle of the progressive era.
