Well, the election is tomorrow. Sometimes I wished we lived in an aristocracy. I think that a ruling class would be preferable over a single leader able to do things on a whim… probably would rather have something like a “council of elders.” And in a system with a ruling class, there should be opportunities for moving up in class like in the middle ages either through some great deed(being made a noble) or competition in an arena, slaying a gigantic beast etc. My ideal form of government would be similar to that of the ape city in Planet of the Apes(1968 version) even though I recognize they also incorporate some heavily theocratic elements as well….
I’ll take Dr Zaius over Obama and Mccain any day.
