25. Yes, give me rule by the elite. Why not a US system of peers?
Election to Congress could be contingent upon peerage, with membership in the lower house open to those who by nature of their successes could be awarded knighthoods...sort of like the Beatles.

The senate could be made up of true peers. I can hear it now, 'The chair recognizes Sir John, esteemed Lord and Knights Commander, Senator from..." Wow, that would even bring dignity to C-Span broadcasts!

It would all fit very well into the developing system of world domination by corportate fiefdoms. This third way could really put an end to the insufferable political power of the never satisfied working classes.
