Better at what?   General Relativity or building up the german economy?

The German economy was built up, but not a peace economy, but a war economy.

I believe what you're proposing will be a kleptocracy.   Interests would be dictated by the whims of the rich.

What I'm proposing is that we, the members of this forum, conduct an experiment to see how differently prominent atheists are ranked by voting and donating.  Do you oppose this experiment?  If so, then why?

Xero - in the political compass thread, I added an idea where we could test your idea, but we use fake money (1-10) or (1-100) to buy a result, and also do the one person, one vote.

Participating in the donating poll would be a perk of donating to this forum.

Do we need an independent criteria to judge whether poison oak is better than artichokes?  What about whether Einstein was better than Hitler?

Those are not subjects voted on or determined by money in campaigns.  If you must make an analogy, try to make a sensible one.  Though I suspect if Trump supported poison ivy after Fox and Friends talked it up as "good", Republicans in the House and Senate would proclaim Poison Ivy our National Plant.

The Republicans have no internal opposition.  The RNC doesn't exist.  This string isn't about politics, it is about electoral experimentation on less weighty matters, like beer.
