    Yes there is always the risk of a hierarchically organized system developing but it can be limited with certain controls and it would still be better than what we have today.

    As I said, no ideology is perfect and never will be in practice. I never claimed a technocracy had no risk of flaws.

    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.
    That would fail, utterly, when faced with the basics of Human Nature.

    It COULD work, however, if the "Technocrats" running society, were Artificial, non-human, intelligence.

    (but, even then.....the AI may be...."too human.....")

    That response does not appear to be "attacking the post."

    Hell, it does not even mention the post.

    Why would it fail?

    Who would you rather have running the healthcare system, someone who knows it or some politician who has never worked in it?

    Would you rather have a simple politician designing renewable energy or an engineer who has worked in it?

    If we replaced the president and congress with experts in every division the nation would probably run far better. If we elect someone to a department that isn't measuring up then we replace them.

    The peter principle is simply just a theory not a guarantee.

    But I agree that AI is getting to the point where it could supplement decisions but it can't replace them yet because it can't recognize the human factor.

    Here is the basic idea of what the party would stand for.

    Kudos to you for being smart enough to know about that.

    Impressive
    How can, at best, a theory of governance that you yourself describe as "remains MOSTLY hypothetical" and has NEVER been actually used by anyone anywhere be deemed as successful?

    That's ridiculous.
