Actually, Dennis, you were right the first time.  Human are
genetically disposed to function best in small groups, the upper
limit of which is about the size of a village.

At this level of organization, people are able to live in balance
with their immediate environment,  there is usually ample
resources to prevent deprivation, the stress of crowded
conditions is zero, friendships are lifelong, family
relationships are multi-generational, there is a lack of
arrogance and hubris, democracy is personal and direct, there is
a clear perceived connection between action and result.

If the attributes of the village could be extrapolated to a
global level, our planet would have little to fear from its most
sentient inhabitants.
