My lasting contribution to a functioning democratic society will be a voting machine where one logs on with their thumbprint. Electrodes will be wired to sensitive areas. Every time someone tries to vote for a bill, proposition or person that is, or will act against the voter’s self-interest, electric current will be sent through the wires. If the same voter continues along the same self-destructive path, the voltage is gradually increased.
I figure it won’t even take a generation of learning and re-training for our voting citizens the get the hint and stop considering an education to be a bad thing.
