And? The diffusion of power is the diffusion of accountability. No one's responsible and no one's to blame because 2000 people all contributed to the untraceable bad idea. The diffusion of power is the choice of passion over reason. Not merely because the masses are stupid but because the more people involved in a decision the less each person's motivations and rationale reaches the final verdict. Ultimately the question is whether you want a world where decisions are made by the powerful, humanized , 'rational' few or the weak, impersonal, passionate cogs. I personally retain my faith in the Solar aristocracy.My own views leak through somewhat but like half of this is LARPing as Gold Faction.
