    *blinks* I think such a society is only possible if we have clones of BW...

    There will always be people who do not want to think. There'll always be people who do not want autonomy. What do you propose we should do with such individuals?

    If we somehow could find the right aristocrats. And somehow convince the citizens that what they want is a docile environment, where noone bothers anyone. This should work. There could be only very few situations where implementation of this ideology would be proper.

    Maybe after a complete anarchy, where people would be longing for a peaceful environment. Though if we would manage to carry this out, it would be the soundest government possible. The question is, how do we do it?

    Right, now you've gotten around to my position in all of this...

    You know, it just occured to me.
    You might want to consider my ENTP vs INTP topic an example of why government attempts like these don't work.
