I disagree with your claim that smart government cannot exist; on this planet, with the rulers who have reigned throughout recorded human history, I can see why you may have doubt, but surely it is possible for those of the government to govern with intelligence and wisdom. I'm not saying that it either ever has or ever shall happen, but it could be possible for a "smart government". Perhaps some sort of senectocracy?
| Side: Of course
If your understanding of praxelogy was even basic, it would be easily recognizable that smart government is impossible because of one fundamental element, human action. Human action is the act of purposeful behavior, and if it is deemed undesirable by government, it is not purposeful action, government can't be all nothing and all powerful although some substitute as so.
| Side: no such thing

Welcome to CreateDebate
CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy. If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
- Arguments with the highest score are displayed first. Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument. To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
- To vote for an argument, use these icons: You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument. Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change. Yes, you can change your vote.
- Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account. All scores are updated in real-time. To learn more about the CreateDebate scoring system, check out the FAQ.
- When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument. If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
