Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28
Going to the extent of screening the candidates then the voters would be destroying the idea of democracy even more. I think either one would work, but both would be overkill.
Intelligent voters would be less likely to vote for poor leaders, and all leaders being properly qualified would make screening the voters a non-issue.
Besides that, who would do the screening of the candidates? If someone is going to choose only the best candidates, then why should they not just choose the best leader?
