Thread: What do you want to be ruled by?

  1. #1

    Default What do you want to be ruled by?

    I put this up so I'd know what you believed in.




    Yeah.... Be serious.

  2. #2

    Default

    Efficient and scared of its citizenry.

    Seriously.

    I suppose that the most important aspect, in one word, is "transparency."

    The best government is that which governs little.
    Beside the fact that the world would be uncivilized chaos without it, I want to know what gives humans the right to rule over other humans.

    I'd say money gave them the right...

    Id probably go with a democratic / Nationalist type governmeant. but get rid of the currency and go nack to the barter system.

    If you look at it though, Communism "should" be the best type of governmeant, but due to us being... well... humans, it wont work and just hurt its poeple more than it will help.

    I don't believe in any particular style of government. I believe in what works, which changes from situation to situation. However, it will almost always be democratic, because a complex society requires a huge pool of talent/thought to manage it. It will almost always be very liberal, because it needs the freedom to innovate and adapt to changing times.

    It strives towards productivity by ensuring the health, education and safety of its people, because it needs to be productive to survive. It's trustworthy, because it strives to eliminate the need for trust. It has a lot of internal competition, so only the most intelligent and productive rise to the top. It has a circular chain of command, so everyone must compromise between the boss and who they represent using their personal expertise to do it.

    It's not much different than the current government really, although less hierarchical and more computerized.

    My personal favourite can be summed up in a word
    Sweden
    I just love the socialist aspects of it I guess and the idea of redistributing wealth to a degree. It has worked well for Sweden in my opinion, and I think their government may be somewhat futuristic (at least idealistically). As we may be starting to see, capitalism also has it's faults and won't last forever.

    Yes it will, but it should never be made absolute. For many things a free market and capitalistic approach works very well. However, it definitely does tend to divide the rich and poor, so you need redistribution. It can definitely enable abuse, so you need regulation. Even in Sweden, much of the society is free market and capitalist. It is certainly not a centrally planned economy with quotas and tariffs on everything. You are not told what business you are going to start, but have the choice to do what you want. They've just done a good job at balancing capitalism and regulation. Keep in mind, it's a two-way street. Capitalism and the free market keeps a lid on regulation too via elections and lobbying. It's a complex feedback loop that must be carefully balanced on both sides.
