I've kind of liked the system espoused in starship troopers. Limit voting rights to those who have invested into the system. If we are throwing out the constitution that is.
Also, education doesn't necessarily equate to intelligence. Without digging for the data to prove it, I'll go out on a limb here and say intelligent people are more likely to have an education. That is becoming more blurred today, though. Anybody can get a college degree now. It's easier than getting a Tae Kwon Do black belt.
That's my point, Devil. There are always going to be uneducated morons, socio-economic structures (trailer parks are a good example) combined with genetics ensure it to be so. But it is those morons who gain an education, who have a certificate that says "I can follow instructions", that are dangerous, precisely because they believe they are intelligent.
Yeh, I see no reason why this thread should be closed, if any staff disagrees please post a thread in the moderators forum
Why is this thread closed? Probably because of an accidental push of the "tab" button. Why must there always be a conspiracy theory behind this ****. Whenever a thread is locked the moderator who does it usually proclaims the reason. Sheesh.
