not my business.

My Dad and I were just discussing this. The problems don't lie within the various schools of thought, they lie within the fact that the wrong people always gain power. We should be appointing people who do not want to run things, not electing people who want to. The only time I ever saw anything like this actually work was when I worked for the USGS (United States Geological Survey). It was kind of funny, because we were all just a bunch of scientists who wanted to do our research. No one wanted administrative duties, so they had this program where they were trying to make administrative jobs more appealing to people who wanted nothing to do with running things, and basically saying "look, we know you don't want to, but someone has to. It's not as bad as you think.".
I once worked at a receptionist for an ecological sciences centre. It had such an awesome work atmosphere, well for me anyway.
Most receptionist jobs you have to awkwardly greet all the staff and put on your best Sociable personality.
There, there was just a whole bunch of absent minded scientists walking around who didnt feel the need for formal niceties, and in the breakroom there were science magazines and newspapers everywhere and discussion about global warming and all sorts of other ecological issues.
