Come to think of it, democracy, a pundit observed, is the worst form of governance in the absence of a better system of governance. In my opinion, the concept of government of the people by the people and for the people is vague since elective politics benefits the jerks. My take is that, a panel of experts should be appointed to vet the credentials of aspirants who should go through the rigorous selection process of an interview. It is a tragedy that the most sensitive jobs are bestowed to the most senseless and self serving individuals. This should apply particularly to the Third World. Governments should be run like corporates as opposed to social ones complete with performance evaluation and appraisal.
