Some people think rich people a smarter and should control every aspect of the government, thinking they will do what they did to get rich to help us all to be well off too. What do you think?

Lol... that's like a medieval king asking his subjects if only kings should be allowed to rule because some people think kings are god chosen. And we all know god knows best therefore people who god chooses should know best and help us all be well off.

So no pretty much.

90% of rich people are rich because their parents are rich and had opportunies. Not because they are smart. That isn't to say rich people shouldn't be able to run politics. I'd let someone like Elon Musk be political, but rich people like Donald Trump? No.

there are a few flaws that I see in that idea.....while there are many brilliant wealthy people who are wealthy due to using their brilliance.... there are probably many who Inherited their wealth and are not intelligent...or got rich by screwing over the little guy or fluked out or what have you.

Being rich does not mean you care about others either. They can be rich and not give a damn about anyone else... screw over their employees screw of the environment, and other things that make them great at being rich but not suited to being in a position to care for a country.

Rich does not mean not suited either of course. People can be rich and care about others..but if you want smart people in charge dont use wealth because many highly intelligent people who would be good at running the government might not be wealthy because they do not focus on themselves but on the betterment of others.

If you really believe that "smarter" people should run the government then require something like an IQ test for government positions and that will still fail cause just being smart does not mean concern for the world or country or the people in that country. They may have the intellectual ability to know whats best but that does not mean they want whats best for anyone but themselves.

Course all that applies to anyone. Anyone could want whats best fopr all or not care about anyone but themselves or a select few.

Hell no. The rich would just make the rich richer and the poor suffer.
