    I think a democratic technocracy is the way to go. We need to take the worst elements of politics out of the system but retain some choice. We need to make politics boring while keeping people engaged

    Limited versus participatory democracy, sounds like Schumpeter's version of a conservative/representative democracy.

    I favour something like the opposite, its the economy that needs to be democratic and participatory though, if it where and that saw off the worst aspects of capitalism then I'd guess some sort of limited political, legal order could be mandated completely, finally it'd be possible to "wither away" the state as has been part of pretty much everyone's political design, with the possible exception of fascism, since the beginning of time.

    Those communists sure love to round people up. Where's the United Nations on this? Isn't there a UN Human Rights abuse council or something?
    There's a movie coming out with an intriguing title: Little Women. I think it might be something having to do with female dwarves or maybe elves.

    I think you should study who at the moment makes UN Human rights council.

    (directly from UN site)



    UN council



    You are free to count how many of these countries aren't: Communist, dictatorships, banana republics, Ex communists or major trade partners of China.

    Booker hits fundraising threshold for December debate after surge of post-debate donations.

    After telling off Granny Grenade, I certainly hope so.
