|Morozov I 135
Politics/Internet/Jarvis/Morozov: Jarvis is enthusiastic about a policy led by geeks in the name of scientific rationality.
MorozovVsJarvis: he is not at all aware of how completely unoriginal such plans are. These demands are not so different from those of Saint-Simon, who demanded in 1821 that decisions in a new political order should be the result of scientific demonstration, regardless of human will (1).
Bernard CrickVsSaint-Simon: Saint-Simon hated arbitrariness, incompetence and intrigue. These are characteristics of a policy, even of a very good one, as it is used in free states to regulate conflicts of interest. (2)
