I do see your points of views and I do think that you are correct but only to a degree.
The only problem that I see is that people who rule will loose their sense of ethics over time and will forget about the intellectual challenged people that supply the labor force.:detective:
Indeed, that probally will happen, although even if you dont care for the lower classes it is still wise to keep then content anyway, after all, they are in bigger numbers =)
Its kinda funny how many nobilities didnt realize that in the past. Like in the french revolution. If I remember well, the people were starving and there was the king holding parties where he wasted tons of food, instead of keeping a low profile and hoping the masses would blame the bad harvests rather than him.
These days despite the fact that we record and save everything almost no one holds politicians to their word. They freely say one thing, turn around and contradict themselves and then proclaim they never said it. As if we have no way to verify that they actually did. I see this happen a lot and the only rational explanation I can come up with is that, behind the scenes someone influenced them to change their political stance so then you see the contradiction come out and they defend their new position.
I think there is another rational explanation, which is that politicians are merely defending the views that they believe to be the more popular so they gain the favor of the people, and if perchance they find they are on the losing side of the dispute, they quickly change sides as to remain popular... reminds me of sunflowers, changing direction constantly to always catch the solar rays of popularity =)
I am certain there are politicians who only care about getting the power so they can get rich in one of the myriad of ways that are avaible for the powerful.
Barack Obama has made a lot of campaign promises and has broken just about every single one of them, yet almost no one holds him to what he said during his campaign and his current political decisions.
I think people are so used to politicians breaking their promisses that then a politician does so rather than getting angry at him for breaking his promise, they get angry at themselves for having believed on them.
