The Onion's still got it

Humanity Surprised It Still Hasn’t Figured Out Better Alternative To Letting Power-Hungry Assholes Decide Everything

This is my favorite Onion article ever. I'll be the first to say I understand that evolutionary roots cause us to form hegemonic dominance hierarchies—it's not an accident. And I'd say their conclusion (expecting that the problem can be solved by asking for nicer rulers, instead of acknowledging that power corrupts) is flawed. But I'm still excited to see that this came out in a popular publication.
