    Looking at the world today, I feel it's time we think about trying a new form of government.

    "If there was a new way
    I'd be the first in line
    It better work this time..."

    I'm pretty open minded about what it could be though as long as there is real social justice. Someone introduced me to Technocracy, I'm still processing the information in order to have a real opinion on it. I do admit some parts are appealing to me.

    Roughly :
    The technocratic movement was a social movement in the United States during the 1920s and 1930s that advocated a form of society where the welfare of human beings is optimized by means of scientific analysis and widespread use of technology.

    Technocrats argue that we are faced with a fundamental paradox: As inexpensive machines become available to replace human labor, they do not make our lives easier; on the contrary, they make them harder. The more we are capable of producing due to technology, the greater the disparities in wealth will become and the potential benefit of technology will be shared less. The basic cause of this problem, in the view of the Technocratic movement, is the fact that we rely on a money-based system to make economic decisions. A core conclusion reached by the Technocratic movement is that a price / market system, or any system based on scarcity, is an illogical means of distribution in our technologically advanced world.
