What I like about "mob rule", is that after the initial stages where a
dumbed down, general population had made a few painful mistakes, and it
had sunk in that they were big people now, that they might start
demanding things like a higher educational standard, so as to make for a
better informed, decision-making process.
This would also contribute to such aspects as transparency in
government, and before you know it, you'd be back living in a democratic
Jefferson would sleep peacefully in his grave.
