No, no...you misunderstand me. I'm not saying there should be less government control, just that it's done algorithmically.
Think automated DMV processing, automated welfare distribution, automated parolee management, IRS collections/auditing, and so forth.
Of course, the inevitable argument against this is that too much trust is placed into the programmers hands. This is why it would all have to not just be open source, but clearly laid out and audited by many many programmers and non-programmers alike. Further, the algorithms should have built in mechanisms for refinement and improvement.
As a guy who loves designing algorithms, and is very good at it, I must say you put w-a-a-a-y too much faith in algorithms. Even "open source" algorithms. Consider the Federal Government's determinant sentencing rules (with the Orwellian misname of "guidelines"). They are viewed with almost uniform horror by the judges that must use them to calculate sentences, even by Conservative judges who would be most expected to approve of the often Draconian result. There is nothing secret about these sentencing algorithms. Prosecutors are able to trigger whatever "enhancements" they wish by placing claims in the indictment regardless of merit.
