Couldn't it be argued that the Human is the problem is the democratic equation? Due to to their inability to leave emotions out of it? Perhaps this is the best form of democracy one ruled by the machines. How else is skynet going to start? You mention "If Evan" is trying. You do remember that it was the voters inside the class that asked Evan to continue. He simply put it up for debate and the majority decided to support it? How does that have anything to do with Evan pushing anything? Free markets move as they please. Sure he nudges it here and there but he isn't trying to make more decisions he is trying to build a protocol to allow us to govern ourselves?
