I don't share your optimism about society - pretty much every other one has fallen in less than a few thousand years (which is no reason not to be humane today).
The sensible response to such pessimism would be to not breed with someone with the head-explodey gene (assuming one doesn't oneself have it) so that one's descendants would be better suited to a post-magic plaster society. This would make it harder for head-explodey carriers to find mates and act as a form of selective pressure.
Unless they all breed with one another. Dividing into two subspecies is a decent way to preserve diversity.
