On Obama vs. Expertise

Artful Dodger @ neo-neocon's Obama and Hillary: the spider and the fly notes:
Expertise has no place in power, it is irrelevent and an opposing force. so no one under the despot can have expertise except for the lowest prols who have no other optoins and no way to leverage their expertise except in the service of the power above. This is why these states fall apart -- (at first). Power loves a servant, and an independent capable person is a power of opposition, not servant. So they move incompetents in place. The incompetent owes all they have, since they can't do well on their own. Their morals are easy to corrupt and they know who they serve.... We are completely ignorant of power games of this type as our state is coming out of a meritocracy republic and moving into a kakistocratic oligarchy of elite sociopaths.
