    Yes you can bring up mistakes but we are looking at the best results.

    Sure experts make mistakes but overall they will have more success than failure.

    Do you want a Donald Trump to run our waterworks or would you prefer someone who has actually worked there?

    I support bringing more experts into policy-making.

    Need to listen more to scientists, and de-partisan-ize science.
    Thanks from Madeline

    The point of a technocracy is that you don't bring in experts to advise but they actually make the policy.

    Its the removal of politicians.

    If my car breaks down I take it to a mechanic.

    He may be the worst mechanic in the world but he still knows more about engines than I do.

    I don't take my car to the local grocery store to have it fixed because they probably know only as much as I do.

    This is too vague. If we have no politicians, do you mean we have no elections? How are these technicians getting their jobs -- and what makes you so sure none of them is ever going to want to keep it or get a more powerful position?

    They are appointed by the benevolent dictator, silly.

    Ideally they would simply be appointed possibly with a term limit. The person running it would not be an elected official but their responsibilities would probably fall within their current job duties. It means no cabinet for the president, no leaders of departments, the goal is efficiency. Who best knows how to run a department then those that work in it already?

    Want to fix the DMV then you appoint someone from the DMV who knows what needs to be fixed. If they don't succeed you appoint someone else until it works.

    In the beginning of our nation it was hard to fill the supreme court with justices because they were actually assigned districts around the nation and had to travel to hear cases. Nobody actually wanted the job. It would be a similar principle, anyone in charge would also be working where their responsibility is, not just sitting around making decisions.

    The definition:

    Technocracy is an organizational structure or system of governance where decision-makers are selected on the basis of technological knowledge. The concept of a technocracy remains mostly hypothetical. Technocrats, a term used frequently by journalists in the twenty-first century, can refer to individuals exercising governmental authority because of their knowledge. Technocrat has come to mean either "a member of a powerful technical elite" or "someone who advocates the supremacy of technical experts". Examples include scientists, engineers, and technologists who have special knowledge, expertise, or skills, and would compose the governing body, instead of people elected through political parties and businesspeople. In a technocracy, decision makers would be selected based upon how knowledgeable and skillful they are in their field.

    In my opinion, putting experts in charge instead of politicians will give us better results.

    A technocracy is the best ideology.
