Councillor Hamann: No, no point. Old men like me don't bother with making points. There's no point.
Neo: Is that why there are no young men on the Council?
Councillor Hamann: Good point.
Architect: Hope. It is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength and your greatest weakness.
Neo: If I were you, I would hope that we don't meet again.
Architect: We won't.
?? That is not an option!! We are trying to avoid an autocratic dictatorship situation that would mislead humanity into self destruction. And I don't believe a council of 12 members would agree to do that.

That is a good point. Perhaps there can be some mechanism within the council that could deal with "change management". That's how they do it in the corporate world today.
acmpnsfal humans and our forms of governance are not static.
I agree on both points here. I'm giving each of the 12 council members equal authority with the others - it should help to promote open policies instead of secret agendas.
kwakakev there should be more openness and transparency.. Public discussion can be a lengthy process so patience is needed.
CrimsonMoon We need AI, that will remove all corruption, probably money too, end all wars and take us to the next level and across the galaxy.. maybe time itself.
Perhaps there is a shadow government like you say. A shadow government is not open to scrutiny or criticism so it should not be allowed in the first place.
OsirisIndigo How do you know we dont already have a government like that?

We need a new system. We need a system which is immune to corruption. We need a system that is unique and new. What does this new system look like? Will it look like anything we have seen before?
Perhaps what we need is a Matrix system of government.. A system that is not based on secret agendas.
Well, we can hope and dream, can't we?
