"There are theoretical advantages to rule by the technocracy. Those who actually know what they're talking about should, in theory, be less likely to propose something completely insane as a policy, to give just one example. Gospodin Lysenko showed that this doesn't always work out in practice it must be said though. But there is another problem as well: political interference in the evidence that said technocracy uses to reach its policy conclusions." (02/06/11)
