Although it would indeed be ideal if man were to govern himself, I think we have ample human history to prove this is very unlikely to happen.
Short of divine intervention, I think NATURE may have the last word on this subject.

It's hopeful to think that the humankind have inner balance. But whether it's so or not - that still have to be proved...

Man is the architect of his own fortune, for better or worse
These days Man is suffering not so much from material poverty as he is facing the seemingly irretrievable bankruptcy of his spiritual and moral resources

Global climate change and pollution caused by humans are on track to make the planet unsustainable for human life.

Humans have a narrow window of opportunity to reverse that, but time is running out.

Now is the time to change!

Respectfully, I do not agree that man can or will control these dangers.

Fact is, man does not know how to solve his problems and, since he does not believe in God, he really is in deep trouble.

Man oh man. Think Are we gonna do the right thing. Some will, some won't.
Politics, voting, standing up for right and against wrong! Will it make a difference?
There is Hope!

In response to the previous post . . . .

With all due respect, if your hope is in politics to make a real and lasting difference, then I genuinely feel for you.

To question where your hope lies is a very useful exercise. Thanks for the reminder then.
