Philosopher worse. Too indecisive, head in the clouds, wishy washy, ponderously slow thought process, too distracted by navel gazing to see reality. Why do you ask? Got someone in mind?
Philosophers can teach people how to think. Only they can say what they think... and self government does not require leaders, but it does require self control.
...is that a matter of belief out of your own philosophy ? or are you just plain ignorant about what philosophy actually is ?
This whole thread sounds suspiciusly Platonic. Philosopher kings?
A philosopher-king is never elected but thrust upon by revolution.
