Scott Adams Proposes a Fourth Branch of Government 341

LoLobey writes "Dilbert creator Scott Adams is proposing a fourth branch of government in the WSJ. He describes it as 'smallish and economical, operating independently, with a mission to build and maintain a friendly user interface for citizens to manage their government.' It's a humorous article with some interesting ideas including internet access as a constitutional right and a constitutional ban on all election contributions for any candidate that polls above 10%. He's primarily proposing a method of getting verifiably accurate information on various issues to aid voters in making decisions, but despairs on his own blog about reader's comments on the article."

    Isn't corruption already illegal?

    Also, can you please point out an example of a government that is less corruptible than our own?

    If by "our own" you mean the government of the United States of America, then I can point to several less corruptible governments including:

    Denmark
    New Zealand
    Singapore
    Finland
    Sweden
    Canada
    Netherlands
    Australia
    Switzerland
    Norway

    While I might be taking a bit of liberty in the interpretation (this is Slashdot after all), this is based on Transparency International's 2010 Corruption Perceptions Index (http://www.transparency.org/policy_research/surveys_indices/cpi/2010/results)

    "The 2010 CPI measures the degree to which public sector corruption is perceived to exist in 178 countries around the world"

Any program which runs right is obsolete.
