Re: Government

This Topic was suggested to me by a discussion in a different Thread in a Post by Hito, which I take the liberty of reposting here:

Perhaps democracy is not such a good idea. Asking all people to vote about matters that require a PhD level of knowledge is objectively illogical. I am not saying that voting should be eliminated but I am asking people to consider what it means. The idea of a voting licence could logically lead to most people being eliminated from the electoral roll as few would have the necessary knowledge required to make informed decisions on the range of complex matters controlled by government.
So where does that leave us? I don't know

Perceptive questions often suggest their own very best answers. I believe your statements certainly do! Another perceptive insight by Hito.

A license to vote? This is similar to the chicken vs the egg paradox.
