Democracy is the best we have, but it is outdated, because:
1. Capitalism is rigging democracies.
… while people are brainwashed but don’t know it.
I just came across this video that is Jeremy Corbyn’s response to Traingate. Sadly quite a late reveal, since this propaganda already had its negative impact on his campaign.In a previous poll 57% of brits wrongfully took side against Corbyn. Only 18% believed him. Embarrasingly brainwashed nation naively took side against a man who had the intention of improving their public transport and sided with the private owner of the train who owns private islands by ripping them off.
Just like normal Americans who voted for a billionaire class to rip off their health care, education, tax money and wellfare.
2. People are getting dumber:
That’s why racism is on the rise everywhere.
I wonder why the dumbest of any population typically believe in the supremacy of their own race. And this is not limited to white people.
In general, beliefs of collective supremacy doesn’t say much about a population. Says about an individual. To me when someone claims “my race is genetically smarter”, translates to “I’m most likely in the bottom quarter of my own population, intellectually.”
Anyway, people are getting dumber. Meanwhile dominators are becoming more experienced.
3. AI does it better:
Politicians are paid to make decisions. Can machines replace their job?
If yes, why don’t we use machines that are cheaper and more reliable? Say training a classifier that predicts whether or not Trump will sign a given bill tomorrow, provided his twitter account or other data available from him.
If no, if politicians are so random that machines can’t mimick them, why don’t we use a randomized algorithm instead?
Every four years people will turn up to vote for a random decision generator among few random options. During a randomized voting process, the genertor that collects the highest number of random votes will make random decisions till the next round!
