There have always been problems and every generation has had its doomsayers. I think the "monopolization of power" is hardly even a problem. Do you want to run the government? I certainly don't. I'm thankful there are people who want the damn job, and I fully understand that it's not going to attract the sharpest most ethical people. But those people aren't evil. They can be educated to see that raising the Earth's temperature 4degC is a really bad idea. They can understand the importance of clean water and air. They will respond to public pressure, but people have to make democracy work. It doesn't work just because it's written into the Constitution. I can only hope you're right. Where's Obama's promised green economy (for example) ?
