Deda BS: Modest Proposal to end the civil war (87* d) RE: BS: Modest Proposal to end the civil war 09 Nov 03


Well of course the techies who set up the system have to be honest beyond question. But in my imaginary country, that isn't as hard as it is here in the corrupt late Roman, pardon me, American empire. (I'm always making that mistake.) Maybe Amos could do it for me.

True, slaves and women didn't get to vote in Greece.

I remembered what the argument is against one person/one vote for president in the USA. It means that candidates would lobby like crazy in heavily populated areas like NYC and LA, and the low-population states like Dakotas would never, ever hear from them. It seems to me that with the internet, that might not be as big a deal as it once was.

Yes, I like the dux femina facti reference, except that I hope to end up better than poor old Dido.
