“I think if, in order to vote, you needed to score at or above average on intelligence, aptitude, and news awareness tests, then half the world’s problems — caused by shitty politicians getting into power — would be solved, easy peasy. This is not a snotty, elitist statement. Voters hold great power and influence over the state of the world, in electing those who rule the world. Their votes can be the difference between wars starting or the earth getting plundered. If you’re not fully informed on global issues, if you buy the BS we’re told by big companies and lying politicians, you shouldn’t get to vote.” – Serious Voter[rns_reactions]

I don’t think raw intelligence should be the criteria. There are plenty of stupid smart people, if you get my meaning. But I do like the idea of having to demonstrate at least some basic skills or knowledge or something. Unfortunately, I cant see such a scheme being workable. Reaching a consensus on what the test would involve would be impossible, let alone the other logistics.
The voters shouldn’t have to pass a test. Would be politicians should have to pass a test before running for office!!!!
