Chaotic flexibility or predictable rigidity, pick one?

After an example describing the differences in two different systems, The Rational Fool asks in A Clash of Cultures:

Which is better, chaotic flexibility or predictable rigidity?

I don’t have to think too hard for this, I’d go with predicable rigidity anyday. The simple reason; given access to up to date information, rigidity is managable and easier to adapt to.
