Utopia 3

Posted on Friday, October 16th, 2009 at 1:24 pm in

In my last "Utopia" post I discuss the pitfalls of democracy and suggested a form of constitutional monarchy. I came up with another idea

"Democracy is the worst form of government except for all those others that have been tried."

-Winston Churchill

Since it is so difficult to determine the best government, I thought of a government which would act as an experiment to test governments. The states would be the "test samples," and the federal government the manager of the experiment. Each state would have to be given a lot of independence. Periodically, the most successful one would be permitted to preside over the country since they are doing the best. Success in this case might have to be based not on current capital but their projection of future capital. Selling all of the resources in your possession leads to an immediate profit but you will most decidedly not be able to produce anything later.

My original idea was similar to this, but after thinking of the system as an experiment I thought the monarchy was too constraining.
