7. Too many people and especially too many interests do *not* want competence

It's true that people can presume men to be competent even when they're not, and many men presume themselves to be competent when they're not.

But more fundamentally, many people don't want competent leaders. They're told to want people they can "have a beer with" or "is one of them". Or simply, they just want any moron who will cut their taxes and just don't care about anything else.
