O ver the long course of history, power has been transferred away from the dictators and to the people. Why should this stop now? A few jerks will always try to ruin any system, but over time the systems have improved, and now we have fewer dictators wrecking life for the rest of us. Improving government is the surest way to disempower the bad guys, and history has proven that smart government leads to increased freedom for everyone. Don’t you think it will be much harder to corrupt a Meritocracy? Meritocracy is specifically designed to stop any family from gaining enough power to ruin the system.
