RE: The best government.
Why French? They only killed one king. Why not Russian? They killed a king off too, and more recently.

And, add me into the "no" column for the original question.

Because the French are more famous for killing their king than the Russians are for their Tsar.

They are? I don't know about that.

Can we meet in the middle here and say "European" and let the individual imagination take over?

The Brits did it first. The Frogs just copied us.

Meanwhile I'm in the "yes" camp.

As long as I get to write the programs.

Or at least ... not Muffsy.

Do you agree with me?

RE: The best government.
I suggest reading some Asimov before committing to this notion. Also, watch Psychopass.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

I'm okay with cutting it down the middle.

So long as we are allowed to use it as an excuse for blanket blaming of Euros.

Best is hard to define, because there are as many versions of what best should be as there are people in this world. Robots would probably be more consistent, though. I'll give them that Tongue
