Interesting posts RockPuck. For the most part I agree with you - certainly in principle - but there seems to be a flaw in your logic.
People are stupid, and when it comes down to it, to damn ignorant to govern themselves, and thus, need someone to hold their hand.
Unless we're being governed by animals or aliens, there's a better chance than not that the ones governing us will be just as stupid as the rest.
Without some kind of intellectocracy we're always gonna end up with stupid leaders - whether they're kings, presidents or dictators.
