I hold politicians in the same regard as I hold meth dealers. Different professions of course but in politicians cases their whole job is to fool you into letting them do things *to* you rather than *for* you and it's not like democracy changes that, because elections themselves create a pageant of narcissists. Now I'm paraphrasing douglas adams twice on this forum today so far when I say that no one who wants power is qualified to have it, ipso facto, or in other words, people are a problem.

My utopia would be a pluralistic social blueprint, a post-scarcity economy, and radically decentralized governance, typically by public assembly. In the US I'd prefer there be a million states with 320 people or so than 50 with a sweeping federal government to boot.

There's no way in hell I'm ever getting that, so I married a communist instead. That's how much it doesn't matter to me. Poke tongue | ;-P
