It's because I have no faith in the majority of humanity that I think that kind of meritocracy is a better idea than representative democracy.I couldn't think of anything worse. I've lost faith in humanity like so I'm biased.
It's like, imagine a single parent with two young children. If their family unit were a democracy they'd be eating ice cream for every meal, replacing all the furniture with bean bags, having new toys everyday, never going to school or work, the only TV allowed would be cartoons, the house would be trashed from constant water fights and food fights and nobody doing any cleaning up, the family car would be traded in for a clown car...
It wouldn't take long before everyone was ill, the house was unlivable and eventually repossessed, it would be chaos. A parent should take charge of their kids, put their foot down and say "no, that's not a sensible decision you've made, I'm vetoing you to protect you from yourselves".
That's exactly what this country needs now. A system of government in which the more responsible, more intelligent people protect the child-brained proles from themselves to stop them from fucking the place up with their stupidity.
