Who are the wise? And to the wise should humanity relinquish its voice? If so, how does one determine who is or is not wise?  Elected politicians, for the most part, cannot truly depict such a persona, being that most of them craft their public images to abide a societal status quo. They are commissioned to orchestrate democratically and compose the motif of genuine Americanism.  At least the notes are arranged to sound this way. But any of whom pay heed to the flaws of the tune know that something is way off key -- that the sheet music might as well be on fire. They know that the band is comprised of bad and mediocre players.  It would certainly be of no positive use to employ the services of the musically disinclined in order to portray the esteem of a symphony. So why allow unwise politicians to make decisions that are requisite of wisdom?  Despite the morality behind the intentions of Platonic assertions, it has shown historically to be a most perilous move to put one person or body in positions that carry the designation of possessing infinite wisdom -- especially when the fanbase is tone-deaf.
