Anyone here ever played any of the "Earth" games? (Earth 2140, Earth 2150, Moon Project, Lost Souls, Earth III)?
I kinda like the idea of the UCS's government, where corruption and secrecy are kinda impossible, its like where the heads of the departments are
chosed at random in a "national lottery" of sorts, and they stay in office for 6 months, then someone else wins the lottery and takes up the
position, then eventually, the main departments are taken over by hugly complex computer programs (which can not be re-coded or anything, and the
source code for these computers is freely available, so if anyone has any comment on how the government is run, they can edit the source and submit it
for suggestions and possible addition to the program) this I feel is probably the best form of government, especially for developing nations where
corruption is rife. Anyone else agree with me?
