I have a similar sense about related notions such as Game Theory and Predator/Prey modeling. They’re useful where they’re useful but they get applied to too much sometimes. As bottom up models they’re fine: and I think an analysis of power differentials at smaller scales can be functional. But when it tries to cover too much territory it can get absurd and divorced from reality quickly.
