I just want the vaccine

You keep saying that there could be a chance that we'll get a system that create evil power-hungry politicians

I say that this system has a great long term potential of being abused. Yes. Just because it's "working" in some countries or the fact that they haven't turned fully fascist yet doesn't change the fact that it can, and will eventually be abused one way or another.

But there's no examples of that in the modern world

What do you think is "modent world?" Germany was considered modern, before Hitler send them to war and turned it into ashes. There were reports of cannibalism. What makes you so sure that you position in the world as absolutely secure? Why do you think the modern world is immune of destruction, fascism and death?

And even if bite into that "modern world" point, you're still wrong. There are, in fact, many examples of very wealthy and "modern" countries limiting freedoms and having values a lot would considered oppressive or even authoritarian.

China is one. China is a pretty modern country. The average Chinese kid propably lives as well as you do. But are they free? I don't think I need to answer that question.
