Democracy is the coagulating whim of human wants, whereas the only thing that matters in an evolutionary meritocracy is human needs as defined by nature.
Human wants do not equate to human needs. What a child wants to eat does not equate to what a child should eat to become healthy. The grownup version of said discord is the consumerism we practice so well in America. The focus on consumerism as a modicum of success does not improve human adaptability to nature’s entropy and instead produces a brooding anthropogenic cascade.
One symptom is that seventy percent of Americans chronically depend on prescription drugs to make it through another day. They are, excuse the reality, the walking dead. With the average age of Americans already in decline, counting those enslaved to drugs leaves a minimal number of Americans in a state of relative health.
There are many other differences between pursuing democracy and an evolutionary meritocracy. A democracy relies on absolutisms of truth, easy to sell to greater-fools, where relativity, discovered by Einstein one hundred years ago, is required. To date, we have not implemented any systems of relativity that can return humanity’s adaptability to its natural state.
The renewable relativity of nature is incompatible with the feigned sustainability of democracy.
We must, and still can, redirect the vector of humanity, with a theory, systems, and rules gleaned from nature’s first-principles and graduate Cum Lauda from the University of Nature to prolong the life of the human species.
