Coherent or incoherent

The matter of shemitta is the matter of how coherent or incoherent is the state of Israel's social, economic and political organization. 
When the leaders of the people of Israel felt the societal bonds to be weak they weakened the shemitta laws. The question is can that weakening be reversed now that the societal bonds holding the people of Israel together have become demonstrably stronger, what with the salutary effects of modern day technology and the robust institutional foundations that come of enlightened democratic society?
