I think the government should always have a hierarchy, with no one thing at the highest point. Now a days, to even run for any type of mainstream
government, you need money for the advertising. Which makes those of privilege birth or corp background the usual candidate.
Originally (from my memory of government class), the hierarchy of the US government was this.. the legislative thought up the laws and got the
majority of the leaders to approve of it, the executive branch approved or disapproved them, and then the judicial decided if it was constitutional
(or something like that). The hierarchy is the elected officials who make the laws have to answer to the people, and the people then had to listen
and obey the laws. Thus making it a circle of responsibility. It was when all three branches became corrupt, is when we started having issues.
I think the corruption is due to the elitists who are voted in due to the funds it takes to campaign, and have any shot. Before technology was in
full swing, campaigning wasn't as costly and could be done by the average person (Lincoln for example).
So.. I think if we cut the tech crud out, and made it so all candidates that aspire to be in legislative were on equal footing, and not mudslinging..
we can get something similar to what we had before.
And yes, this means they don't get paid millions for sitting in a city that isn't even needed or necessary...
In some ways we should utilize the tech we got.. and in some ways we should get rid of it.
