@winston4mg I think he's explaining the evolutionary history for how a community of people can come together to reach an acceptable conclusion by balancing the outliers. Am I right?
yes you are completely right. However there is a downside to this particular idea "lottocracy".
First i should explain Socrates's view on democracy; He said democracy doesn't work because not everyone has the same knowledge (awareness) as everyone else, and this void of Knowledge (awareness) gets filed with advertising and superstition. It's like 10 person, 8 sheeps and 2 humans vote for where to live and the 8 sheeps vote for barns! Democracy is not for all people it's for majority and most of the time majority fooled with superstitions and advertising [because of lack of knowledge (awareness)].
Second because of "primitive accumulation" there is always a rich guy behind every society. For simplification we call them elites.
Therefor because elites have everything on their control, the theaters, the TV stations, the channels, the education and ... . they can manipulate the overall reasoning of all.
So i thinks lottocracy doesn't work either. But life is an struggle, we stumble along the way, and i think this one is good struggle which we could fight for.
don't you think?
