I don't believe that technology can solve human issues. I think it's just an amplifier for the bad things and the good.
Technology allows us, right now, this instant, to feed everyone on the planet. Why isn't everyone feels? Human issues.
No computer is going to teach a human to make good decisions instead of bad ones.

@stkw0 The reasoning behind one person having the power over nuclear weapons is that if it does come to nuclear war the response needs to be instant. There's no time to reach a consensus decision when you have five minutes between buttons being pushed and cities evaporating. That's the justification anyway.
I do admit the European model is better, where nathional grudges get settled on the football field.
