Mahon:

 

So at election time we do due diligence and decide who to vote for, and because of MMP some minor party like NZ First takes control and changes all the key policies I voted for. Its rubbish.

 

 

It is always all about numbers. The democratic solution is to find enough people who agree with you, and change the system so the above can't happen. I am not a fan of MMP because I don't like political parties and this gives them too much power. But I still prefer it to the old FPP.

Won't be a problem who's in charge in 50 years. The whole planet will be run by an AI whose persona will change depending on each persons preferences.

 

World peace at last.

 

 

AI will realise that humanity is redundant and unleash Skynet. 

 

World peace at last.
