This is the first thing that occurred to me on the night of 11/8 when it became clear who our next president would be. The general population is drowning in misinformation and their emotions are being used to bamboozle them. In the US we call it a virtue to vote, no matter how ignorant you are or uninterested in politics. We don't need the opinions of everyone -- we need the opinions of the people who have the capacity to wisely choose our leaders. There are many ways that those representatives might be chosen, but because of sensitivities to race and class most of them are non-starters (for example, educational attainment, IQ, wealth, etc). Using congress is a decent suggestion, though still a pretty small body (a significant percentage could be coerced at a plausible expense). I would like to see a voting body more in the range of 10k agents. Even if they were chosen at random, perhaps the greater sense of responsibility would motivate them to make a carefully considered decision.
