A university professor and World Economic Forum affiliate is suggesting we abolish elections and instead introduce a merit-based lottery to determine the US President.
Adam Grant, psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania and WEF agenda contributor, penned an op-ed in The New York Times that argued “If we want public office to have integrity, we might be better off eliminating elections altogether.”
“In the United States, we already use a version of a lottery to select jurors. What if we did the same with mayors, governors, legislators, justices and even presidents?” Grant asked.
Grant said that winning political office by chance would keep a candidate’s ego at bay.
“When you’re anointed by the group, it can quickly go to your head: I’m the chosen one,” he said. “When you know you’re picked at random, you don’t experience enough power to be corrupted by it.”
Further, he suggested that those who are drawn to power tend to exhibit greater levels of narcissism.
“The people most drawn to power are usually the least fit to wield it,” he said.
Grant’s op-ed comes at a time when some pundits on the American right are concerned that the Biden administration will attempt to somehow either steal, postpone, or abolish the 2024 US election.
WEF authoritarian wants bosses to be able to spy on employee’s brain waves
At the 2023 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, a Duke University professor gave an Orwellian presentation advocating for “neural transparency” – or the ability for corporations to spy on the brain waves of their workers.
Professor Nita Farahany glowingly cheered on how new devices that can read and record brain activity are already being used in workplaces around the world, supposedly to enhance safety and productivity.
“What do you think? Is it a future you’re ready for? You may be surprised to learn that it is a future that has already arrived,” said Farhany.
