Is the best way to depopulate the planet through classical education?

We know. If you don't then don't worry your pretty little head about this. It is over your pay grade.

There are leaders and there are followers.

A lot of "smart" people are socially smart and don't have the people skills to run a society. There is a very good reason most of them end up in technical fields and not politics or company CEOs.

Leaders don't believe that. That's why they're leaders. People who believe that are followers and the leader tricks them into thinking that so they follow him.

I think morality matters most, but you'd want intelligence to go with that so they don't fuck it up with their bad plans supported by good intentions.

Nope. Democracy is smarter than the smartest people.

We tend to deify/heroworship 'smart people'. It's a pretty natural human tendency.

But the truth is, free chaotic systems, even when made up of dumb individuals, outperform planning. Markets are more efficient than planned economies, and they last longer, and betting markets make better predictions than the smartest experts.

No one should 'run the world'. The smartest human brain is still a very limited thing

Yes but democracy always devolves into planned economies because the mob always votes for gibs and disincentivize the productive and smart people.

And then the planned economies collapse because that never works thus why we have a republic

I don't know if they should run the world, but you should definitely have capable and intelligent people in the government who focus on a specific topic and know what they are on about. For example the amount of absurd tech legislation is insane.

Shit is fucked, yo. Either these 'smart guys' aren't so fucking smart after all or they are a bunch of fucking dicks - either way I wouldn't trust them to run a hot dog cart.

It was nice having a smart person run America. Now we will see what a sociopathic con man can do. At least the Trump clown show is entertaining.
