Population control

The social status type system could offer a way to greatly reduce the need for police force to apprehend a suspected criminal. All that would be necessary would be to change that person’s credit score so that he will no longer be able to use most of public or social resources. That change is status is sufficient for that individual to eventually seek out a remedy that will allow the government to deal with him appropriately. No police force required.

COVID19: KPIs for Dedomenocracy

The absolute and accumulated numbers are only important for political gains for electing parties and politicians.   A government by data and urgency has no such politician elections so these numbers are not meaningful as long as the survival rate is sustainable.  From an operational perspective, what matters is maintaining sufficient capacity to handle the new cases.

Holding dark data accountable

The biggest failing of science in the current COVID situation is its inability to react to new evidence that its original conclusions were wrongly decided, and the assurances to governments were incompetent.   We implicitly accept that any initial science-based decisions attains some law-like status that is automatically presumed to be true until there is overwhelming evidence that it is wrong.   In particular, such decision making does not permit a simple apology for making a mistake following new data that clearly disproves the original science. 

COVID19: Exposing Science

We live an era of rapid succession of new challenges and opportunities as humanity continues to progress to a more capable population.   There is no time to waste on clinging to old theories merely out of respect to the past science. We need a government that reinvigorates the true science of the activity of figuring out new truths of the current world based on recent measurements that our predecessors never encountered.

Mobilization with Data

Unless we permit the algorithms to project the trends into the future, thus inventing modeled data for future values, the algorithms would conclude on policies that may not be distinguishable from the current politically biased decision making.   Government by data must permit dark data, data generated by models, as equals to bright data of trusted observations.

Democracy: the best a government can be?

At some point, we should free ourselves to ask whether we can make a more modern form of government that better accommodates the modern challenges of the diverse populations and global influences and consequences.  It is highly unlikely that a democratic (or democratic republic) can ever have the authority to make these optimal decisions that will inevitably result in condemnation by the majority.
