Ryan doesn't claim he can tame it. The post comes off as self-deprecating and not arrogant to me:

"Node is fucked too. I am also one of these people adding needless complexity. ... The entire system is broken - all the languages and all the operating systems. It will all need to be replaced."

I am not a node.js user.
