How to get the perfect government

The answer is yes. Computers can probably now govern us better than ourselves. All the information ever recorded in human history is online. A computer could assimilate it all to create the perfect government, decide all our votes, create all our laws. A lot of people would hate the result, but it would achieve the optimum potential, least pain, & most fairness of every alternative.

If there was any more land to colonize, the new colonies would probably base their government on a computed result. They would admit it's beyond our mortal constraints to govern ourselves, but luckily we have tools that the founding fathers never dreamed of, to do what mortals can't do.

In a way, we're already moving towards a computational government. The
stock market is entirely automated. We all rely on Goog searches to
decide how to vote.

It's surprising no-one has already tried to create a computational government. The Goog could do it right now, but the result would probably put them out of business.
