Why technocracy

This is why democracy doesn’t work. Also, scientists know better anyway. Most people don’t even do any homework before voting. Certain politicians tap into the dissatisfaction built into a democracy but they only abuse this scientific fact and don’t actually fix the dissatisfaction, because it is not fixable.

A theocracy as I see it would be Plato’s utopia, but with scientists instead of philosophers. That is also called a ‘technocracy’.

edit: the problem is not at lower levels where the politicians aren’t as smart and the stupidity of the people isn’t that obvious. I am talking about a world government.
