Doesn’t democracy use the wisdom of crowds to organically pick the best leaders?

T he “wisdom of crowds” has debunked itself. The wisdom of crowds has brought us failure after failure, whether it is trampling people on Black Friday, giving snake-oil salesmen the nuclear launch codes, or cultish groupthink where a herd of people blindly follow each other off a cliff.

The public is led by tabloid reporting and professional liars. Impossible promises and dapper style is all it takes for a suave saviour to bewitch the public. The collective IQ plunges when a powerful leader flatters the masses. This is no way to make important decisions.

The wisdom of crowds is deranged. Democracy has proved that the wisdom of crowds gives us empty suits for leaders—people who specialize in shaking hands. It’s not wisdom at all; it’s just mob rule.

CASPER SAUL joined THE MERITOCRACY PARTY in 2012. His activism focuses on economic equality--justice for the "bottom billion" whose cultures were dismantled by colonialism before being exploited by capitalism. Casper believes that guaranteed equal opportunity for every child is the only way to end the poverty caused by the financial oligarchy's concentration of wealth. He supports the MILLIONAIRE INHERITANCE TAX as the ideal policy to realize justice for impoverished communities that have been economically abused by the 1%.
