I'm not sure complexity itself gets in the way of human agency so much. It's more the risk and fear of problems, including job security, when trying to wrestle with that complexity and invariably breaking unforeseen things.

Maybe that's what the FP people mean by DDD and bounded contexts. If you constrain the complexity into something bite-size that in turn has well-documented interface points, then it all starts getting easier to manage again.
