The magic of the "creative destructions": The adaptive, homeostatic, balance restoring adjustments in one of the two main parts of the integrated system will inevitably lead to the corresponding adjustments in the initiating part, cascading to the rest of the whole system.

This stimulus-response chain reaction is regulated by the positive feedback mechanism directly factored by the degree of integration, and by the same mechanism, promoting and enhancing this integration. This might be true for both the physical and social systems: the man-made controlled explosions, the magic of the "creative destructions", appear to be very powerful phenomena in both the nuclear weaponry (Was this conceptualized as the model?) and the social - economic revolutions. 

The question is to assess the quality of this presumed integration: it might be illusory, temporary, nonconsequential, nonsystemic process, or it might be the true integration, which appears to be historically beneficial for the large social systems, lifting them to the new developmental levels, and promoting "progress": specializations and the creative, productive developments. Just like all other man-made phenomena, it depends on the continuing input by men and also on the multitude of other factors, including the extraneous, sporadic, and accidental ones. 

This is the new "nuclear social science", and, more importantly, the new nuclear social - political practice. "How new?", is a question also, it probably was practiced throughout the human history in the different conceptual clothing. The good old wine still is the good old wine, even if it is poured from the new bottles with the new labels. How good is it, that's another question, and the time will show, revealing the aftertastes and possible headaches, or their blessed absence. 

Generally speaking, men should not play with Nature too much, nothing good comes out of it, usually. But the social processes are in between, determined by the will divine as well as the human.
