1001 post: Amoebae and politicians

It seems our long-standing suspicion was right. It seems it is less costly and much more effective to maintain the appropriate amoebae cultures in Petri dishes and observe their reactions to problems on sustainable development and social challenges than spend money in thousands upon thousands of politicians.

Think again

Seriously: are there ways we can deal with less politicians and give more power to people without falling into the "Soviet/council mobbing" trap the extreme left is trying to take Venezuela to?
