I ask, because a lot of us apparently would like one when it comes to our favorite causes.

Here's my example. You'll surely have examples of your own.

Environmental advocates try to do an end run around majority rule by pressuring politicians to pass environmental legislation, sometimes based on good science but sometimes based on half-baked science that later proves to be wrong, even though the public is not enthused about it, and may even be hostile to it.

In other words, the (supposed) end justifies the means.

Does it?

If so, maybe we need a benign dictatorship based on rationalism and technocratic control.

What do YOU think?
