A New Ocracy

After eight years of a Goofy-ocracy trying to be a Plutocracy, America readies itself for...

Cognocracy - we know what we're doing.
Meritocracy - those who have the wisdom will lead, those who have the knowledge will guide, those who have the skills will do.
Technocracy - a government run by experts and technicians.
Sociocracy - a government in which the needs of everyone are met.

Perhaps it will, finally, be a pantisocracy - a utopia in which all members rule equally.

Actually, Sociocracy is about making decisions by consensus, meaning "no objections." It requires that people deliberate together and resolve objections before moving forward. It's about cooperation and respect as much as about needs. It is designed for structuring and managing all kinds of organizations, including corporations and societies. "Needs" to many people means personal emotional needs. In that sense if the organization is about personal needs then objections based on personal needs would be valid. In some other situations that would not. It depends on the goals of the organization.

Thank you for mentioning it.
