Thank you Clayton I could

Thank you Clayton

I could respond to each of your points, but I want to discuss the critical point. Details can be adjusted.

Many governments are conspicuously failing to manage their countries.

I suggest that while issues like corruption remain very important due to shortcomings in human nature, there is another growing problem that dwarfs them all.

Civilisation is much more complex now than it was when existing forms of government were devised, and it will get progressively more complex. Consequently, failures in managing countries will become more common and more severe unless government is rethought to accommodate that progression. The obvious answer is all around us. Civilisation advances because of the specialisation of people. Government too should be based on that undeniably successful principle.

Check out the Thomas Thwaites presentation on TED http://www.ted.com/talks/thomas_thwaites_how_i_built_a_toaster_from_scratch.html. In less than eleven entertaining minutes he demonstrates what a powerful concept this is.
