World is run by idiots

Anyone else feel the same way? I mean winning elections is very rarely about how much candidate knows or how smart he/she is. Of course elections are not decided by who is the best candidate, they are decided by who is the most POPULAR candidate. And general public is, well, not the smartest body to decide these things. Sometimes I feel limited oligarchy would be the best form of government. Let people decide something, but top leaders should be selected by a board of actually smart people.

The world is not ran by idiots. It is however ran by people who don't have your best interests in mind.
2020-09-27 02:29
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Government is just a system that keeps those interests in check
2020-09-27 02:33
The state is an instrument with which the bourgeoisie, aka the capitalists, control the people living under it. Parliamentary "democracy" gives the illusion of power to the masses, while not presenting any realistic options apart from the same old, same old. See for example the USA, where in November the people can choose between 1) the sitting billionaire president who is not only working for the interests of the ruling class but himself part of it or 2) a politician who has been a faithful servant of the ruling class his entire life, never straying from seeing all their wishes come true. Not to mention that both seem to be racist, misogynistic and overall incompetent & senile. As Lenin wrote in his masterpiece, the State and Revolution, we are living under the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie and the only way to be released from it is through a revolution, whereby the majority (i.e. the proletariat, working people, people without capital) seize the power from the minority (capitalists) and use the state apparatus to oppress them and see that a better, more just society is created. I absolutely recommend reading the works of Lenin, Marx and Engels (among others). It helps to see the world for what it is and to understand why things happen the way they do.

The ideas of Lenin and Marx have only lead to more oppression and suffering. It will never work in practice, and that's just how it is.
2020-09-27 12:19
dont worry bro, even LARPers will get the bullet 👌😎
2020-09-27 12:33
broh, the state is an instrument with which marxists have DESTROYED whole cultures and nations--- whenever someone defending this crappy ideology they'll say that it just wasn't implemented properly. GEE, a lot of people always die whenever factories, farms, firms and all manner of industry are taken over by socialists. why is that?
2020-09-27 21:43
Wtf are you talking about things you have no idea about? I'm not saying that e.g. USSR wasnt "implemented correctly", USSR was fucking awesome. It wasnt perfect but it was great nonetheless.
2020-09-27 22:06
ussr fucking awesome? oh my lord
2020-09-27 22:11
Yes? Now lets take a look on more FACTS about the USSR: The USSR: had the 2nd fastest growing economy of the 20th century the USSR is 2nd after Japan Source: artir.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/captur.. had zero unemployment have continuous economic growth for 70 straight years. see: Robert C. Allen'sa, From Farm To Factory Source: citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?d.. (review of book here homepages.warwick.ac.uk/~syrbe/pubs/Farm.. ). The "continuous" part should make sense – the USSR was a planned, non-market economy, so market crashes á la capitalism were pretty much impossible. had zero homelessness. Houses were often shared by two families throughout the 20s and 30s – so unlike capitalism, there were no empty houses, but the houses were very full. In the 40s there was the war, and in the 50s there were a number of orphans from the war. The mass housing projects began in the 60s, they were completed in the 70s, and by the 70s, there were homeless people, but they often had genuine issues with mental health. end famine have higher calorie consumption than USA Source: artir.files.wordpress.com/2016/05/compar.. You can read more about the post-1941 famine history in Nove's An Economic History of the USSR 1917-1991. There were food insecurity issues, especially when Khrushchev et al. majorly fucked up with trade and resource dependence on the west, but no famines after the collectivisation of agriculture in the early 1930s (except for in the Siege of Leningrad). end sex inequality Source: en.wikisource.org/wiki/Constitution_of_t.. Equal wages for men and women were mandated by law, but sex inequality, although not as pronounced as under capitalism, was perpetuated in social roles. Very important lesson to learn. end racial inequality Source: theguardian.com/artanddesign/shortcuts/2.. make all education free Source: revolutionarydemocracy.org/archive/PubEd.. revolutionarydemocracy.org/archive/anglo.. unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0000/000013/00.. 99% literacy Source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Likbez have most doctors per capita in the world Source: marxists.org/archive/newsholme/1933/red-.. The Soviet Union had the highest physician-patient ratio in the world, my notes say 42 per 10,000 population, vs 24 in Denmark and Sweden, 19 in US. In this document: sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/07.. You can open it without paying with sci-hub.cc eliminate poverty Source: gowans.wordpress.com/2011/12/20/we-lived.. double life expectancy Source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_th.. After the October revolution, the life expectancy for all age groups went up. A newborn child in 1926-27 had a life expectancy of 44.4 years, up from 32.3 years thirty years before. In 1958-59 the life expectancy for newborns went up to 68.6 years. This improvement was seen in itself by some as immediate proof that the socialist system was superior to the capitalist system be 25 years away from reaching parity with Western world This is kind of a counterfactual – the transformation of the USSR to capitalism began a long time before 1991, so trying to figure out what Soviet growth would look like if it hadn't become capitalist requires that we root out the fundamental cause of the change to capitalism. And we can't even use US economic stats either – the mass-privatization of the Soviet economy and the sudden influx of cheap labour for Western capitalists obviously had an effect on the US economy. But then again, even a 1% difference will stack up over 25 years.

deep state ayyyyyyyyyyyy
2020-09-27 13:20
not a deepstate but people underestimate the power of corporations. literally amazon and google could just sue the fuck out of every president and win, thats how much power they have.
2020-09-27 14:09
Not run by idiots. Run by people who want to keep their mates rich.
2020-09-27 02:30
this or they're just puppets of said rich people, really
2020-09-27 02:31
Yup. It sucks but what are we gonna do about it? Nothing :>
2020-09-27 02:32
Yea like that Australian politician who didn't even know how submarines work but still get to make decisions about the matter. I'm sorry m8 but the world is run by idiots, like it or not. Examples are not hard to find. Smartest people work in companies, politicians are leftovers.
2020-09-27 02:38
Politicians must be incredibly smart to be able to appeal to the smart people while just being leftovers :)

most people are dumb therefore democracy will always be ineffective most leaders get corrupted by power therefore politicans are ineffective so yes the word is run by idiots. the only possible way for effectivity and a well run society is if individual freedom is maximised, where the power is with individuals to make their own decisions, economically and socially.

"Idiots are going to take over the world; not by their capacity, but by their quantity." -Nelson Rodrigues
2020-09-27 02:33
Well to first two commenters I could post few videos where so called "world leaders" answer or ask questions and are revealed to be stupid and don't understand the issue they are deciding about. But whatever. Word "idiot" is relative so it's a moot debate.
2020-09-27 02:33
Yes look at Brazil People at the power should be the smartest ones of each area, noocracy>>>>>
2020-09-27 02:35
why would these smart people go into politics? your logic is bad.
2020-09-27 02:38
Big salary + using your knowledge to help your country and the world
2020-09-27 03:06
Not very big Salary
2020-09-27 13:10
Let’s look into this theory a little further. Let’s say you put the absolute smartest human being alive at the top of government in every scenario. There’s a glaring flaw with this though. There is no renaissance man. Nobody can be a jack of all trades. So, naturally you’d put masters in charge of their respective fields. Now, in this scenario, wouldn’t a livestock expert most likely claim that, in order to reach maximum efficiency in their field, all available resources should be allocated to them? So what do you do? Obviously you put people in charge of these fields to simplify them. You put an “agriculture” expert in charge of everything which falls under their umbrella. Lets say you call them departments of their respective field (department of agriculture, department of motor vehicles, etc.). Now, the problem still stands, so you keep simplifying. Consumer goods, medical resources, etc. still the same issue would persist. So you simplify more. Eventually you’ve simplified it to one person, but now the question is, how do you choose someone who’d have to be a renaissance man to effectively manage every field? Wouldn’t the logical decision be to have people elect the leader they want so you have proportional representation from different fields? Now this is starting to sound a little bit like a democracy. Crazy how that works huh...

The people that control the elected idiots are the smart ones. usually its the already rich and powerful that have the means to do so. There is a reason common people dont get it better.

2020-09-27 04:20
problem is we haven´t came up with something better then democracy yet, easiest way would be that votes of educated people have more value, but that isn´t possible since that wouldn´t be "fair" to everyone... but LETS DO DIS
2020-09-27 02:38
Makes no sense, just bcz I don't like school/uni doesn't mean I am dumber or have less of a critical thinking.
2020-09-27 03:59
thats true but if you take it as a whole population its gonna be for the better
2020-09-27 04:20
What do you mean by saying "educated people"? I know a lot of educated people who are amazing specialists in their field, but their knowledge about politics, history, state management and government control is BAD or just doesn't exist.
2020-09-27 04:13
well yes but if you take it as a whole and see charts who people vote sorted by their education, at least what i´ve gathered in many countries, you see the big difference
2020-09-27 04:21
So you mean that "educated people" would make better choice even if their knowledge in politics is bad? What do charts say about Russia? Many people vote for Putin here. Is this because they are educated or uneducated? Is this a "good" choice or "bad"?
2020-09-27 07:35
yes even if their knowledge in politics is limited they are not gonna vote for obviously wrong choices or they dont vote at all. Russia is far from freedom and democracy so I dont really bother watching charts or shit for them, its like trying to do that in Belarus
2020-09-27 15:14
You have absolute 0 clue about who actually runs the world.
2020-09-27 03:00
german immigrants in argentina run the world
2020-09-27 03:39
lmfao "immigrants" you mean nazi pieces of shit who fled there?
2020-09-27 03:50
I promise you i will defeat you, you're only 14 years old now, by the time you hit your 50's , I will have commanded the disbanding of your shithole.

:D
2020-09-27 04:21
And yours too, bear-boy.
2020-09-27 04:21
No, but you can try. :)
2020-09-27 04:37
To be fair though, i think Russians would be far more fond of the idea of parting the country in multiple real nation-states if this guaranteed the full prosperity and development of each nation state. I really don't understand the point of loving being a 17.000.000 KM ghetto with 20 decent looking cities at most.
2020-09-27 12:07
There will never be such guarantees. And it would only make things worse for us. I like when people say "I don't understand <something>" instead of being overconfident in their knowledge, that's always a good sign.
2020-09-27 12:35
Well we've had a similar problem with Argentina, Argentina is 2.7M km2 huge [8th largest country in the world]. The North of the country looks like the worst parts of Afrika, but with white people, and the south of the country looks like a really cheap, cringy and broken pseudo copy of small underdeveloped Nordic towns. Pretty much 2.2M km2 are pure 5th world ghetto misery, suffer and poverty, yet for the longest time, people prefered to stick with it and thinking that we should be 1 huge nation, and now people are suddenly realizing that this is a terrible deal for almost everyone in it. I suppose that Russia takes huge pride in being a super relevant country, despite being a really poor one, and this is a huge obstacle. You know it more than me...life in inner rural Russia isn't easy...and you seem far too intelligent to believe that the middle of Siberia or Ural are the same as Moscow-St. P. [in regards to living standars, infrastructure, etc.] Such improvement CAN be guaranteed, but your scepticism is very well placed.
2020-09-27 12:44
Don't try to compare Russia and Argentina just because you see some similarities. The difference is fundamental and our problems aren't the same nor similar. You think in completely wrong direction and don't see the big picture. You're wasting time with geopolitics, but it's just a sand-pit. Start thinking outside of the box.
2020-09-27 12:56
Fair enough, but Russia still has a lower GDP Per Capita than Chile, Uruguay, Panama, Latvia, Slovakia, Greece and many other countries that are very underdeveloped. It has been so for a few decades now. What's thinking outside of the box? You really think that a national divorce is mainstream thinking??? How miserable does Russia have to get in order for you to call it a failure??? Afrikan countries are starting to grow like crazy, in 20 years Botswana and Namibia will have entered 2nd world status, where will Russia be? I agree that the vast majority of our problems are worlds away, as Russia is often considered the 2nd or 3rd military superpower. But there are problems that are universal, as much as you'd hate to admit it.
2020-09-27 13:03
Of course Russia has been a failure, but as a result of USSR's collapse in the first place. And I'm not denying the fact that we still have a lot of problems. But your "solutions" are childish and naive. And they will never work. Why? Because everything is "a bit" more complicated than you think. Tbh I don't even know from what I'd need to have started if I had decided to explain it for you.
2020-09-27 13:12
Hold on...are you a communist??? or something along those lines?
2020-09-27 13:14
No, I'm not.
2020-09-27 13:15
ah alright, reply to #25 if you will, i have no problem reading very long walls of text. Be as explicit and graphical as you can, im genuinely curious. I care about this, but i've been focusing on other history of other countries, i should know more about Russia.
2020-09-27 13:17
Wall of text won't be enough, I'd need to write a book or two. Personally it took me like 6-7 years of studying, researching and gathering information to come to current understanding of things, and the puzzle isn't even completed yet. Though the main advantage of the mosaic perception (or mosaic thinking if you wish) is that you don't need all the pieces to see cause and effect relationships. Geopolitics is just one of the layers, don't focus narrowly on it too much and dig deeper.
2020-09-27 13:35
Russia isn't poor. Citizens are poor. No, what you described in the previous comment can't and won't be guaranteed. Do you support globalism?

2020-09-27 03:53
Not perfectly, but better than it could be with other p-resident.
2020-09-27 05:15
How come u came to that conclusion? Or u're judging by our past experience? (which is not a good thing to do in our case)

Power corrupts human, i don’t care what your ideology is. , America’s founding fathers knew this that’s why we were created as a government that no one man had power, not even one group had power. But we forgot that philosophy and made government too powerful. And once it did, corruption follows.
2020-09-27 04:14
Luckily Xizt is a god and cant be corrupted, so lets make Xizt the king of the United States!
2020-09-27 04:17
It’s funny because there is some truth to that look at Trump for example. You don’t have to worry about him selling out to his Donors because he is already rich and isn’t beholden to donors. So he can’t be corrupted in that sense. But he still imperfect
2020-09-27 21:33
Save you it can. To answer power with power, the Jedi way this is not. In this war, a danger there is, of losing who we truely are.
2020-09-27 13:22
Or we can institute Xizt as the king of every country and it will solve every problem
2020-09-27 04:17
the world leaders aren't stupid; they are just controlled by money the fact that you think a fucking oligarchy would be any better proves you are infinitely more stupid than any world leader

not necessary stupid but rather corrupt to the bone Greed is considered good human quality these days, yet its root of all evil. And it only takes 0.5% of human beings with that substantial flaw to ruin lifes of 99.5% others.
2020-09-27 04:52
Smart people could be terrible administrators, by the way... Someone finding the cure to cancer doesn’t mean he or she is fit to govern people. Democracy isn’t perfect of course; it’s just better than the others.

fighting for politics is stupid, people been fighing and argueing about stuff since day 1, just live your life, find a spiritual path, enjoy, love ppl, love the animals and thats it, be happy fuck all politics, politicians, theres no reason behind anything there, only corporativism and gangsters, focus on what matters my friend <3

2020-09-27 13:08
ecconomy was said to crash already 10 years ago, now they have something to blame it on and make their rich homies richer and let corporation take over everything in this world. while the small businesses all go out of service and die : (
2020-09-27 13:12
the leaders are the smart ones, they tell people stuff and get them to vote against their own best interests, so its the general populous that are idiots
2020-09-27 13:19
for me its hard to believe that the people, they show u on the media are actually the people that run the world. i do believe the real people that run the world, are smart as fuck. cuz their identity is still unknown to many.
2020-09-27 13:20
It should be in any constitution that if after X years, the leader didnt do a good job from the point of view of the population, he's sentenced to 50 ice cold butter knife stab in the ass on national tv.
