I think that it's more likely that a segment of 'them' understands the scenario and opportunistically supports the programs that are developed for reasons ranging from proving Calvinist elitism to Mother-was-scared-by-a-Wobblie to pure predatory instinct.

Add that predatory instinct and sociopathic behaviour is rewarded by more power, so there is no particular need to understand in order to grow. But not all powergrabbers are stupid, so some probably has their eyes on the larger picture.
