Theory: Governance models that rely on/embrace ever increasing complexification (of processes/tech/knowledge) as a core attribute (e.g. tech & finance industries, intel-agencies), are bound to suffer from an ever decreasing rate of public participation (in decision making/agency).
If your global governance system is only barley intelligible & actionable if you have 10'000+ PhD's in the same building - it is by definition anti-democratic, anti-emancipatory, anti-egalitarian & dictatorial. And any "make the world a better place" intention won't change that.
Finally, governance systems that rely on ever increasing complexification have the "side-effect" of being brittle & non resilience: Increase in connectivity leads to an increase in resilience only to a point - after which more connectivity leads to a decrease in resilience.
