I'm just interested in hearing the thoughts of you all on Technocracy. I have an atheist friend who says that it would be the best form of government. He's an very intelligent guy, but I disagree with him on this point. This is a community with a lot of science lovers, and as a political science major I'm always interested to hear opinions on subjects like this. So I figured I'd ask y'all what you think of a Technocracy? Would it be practical in America? Or would it even be practical anywhere? (meaning if the USA gave all land west of the Mississippi to a start up country that was a technocracy, would it be able to succeed?)
Since the whole idea is hypothetical, please feel free to be creative in creating scenarios in which it would or wouldn't work!
