I sometimes ask (or see someone ask) an unconventional, non-utopian political question. And the result is high level of outrage or claims that it would be leading to absolute dystopia. Nevertheless, I have a feeling that there is a problem of extra penalty for being unconventional.
In order to be a bit more objective, I picked another person question: I mean if someone ask about skewing the voting system a bit towards high IQ people - the result was outrage. In the same time there is no outrage that many voting system are skewed a bit towards people living in smaller states / provinces (like US senate, or qualified majority in the EU). From answer I also learnt that even such partial disenfranchise leads to awful mistreatment and revolution, etc. Even with my basic knowledge of US political system I can mention something about District of Columbia. (so it's not simple)
Is there a good way to ask such unconventional political question? (without getting too many slogans in answer, but a more realistic assessment how such policy should work)
Example of what I mean:
I was quite successful here: War on candies (or on other threats to modern, affluent people)
It was also not bad here: How to govern marriage and family law for system recognizng polyamory or short term relationships?
Not bad at: Which legal procedures should be used to protect legitimacy of sortitition based deliberative democracy? Big outrage and not specially successful here: How to allow to imprison enemies of state, while still have opposition at large?
Not specially successful here: Waht would be genetic and social result of articificial selection of people who would survive?
But got closed at: https://worldbuilding.stackexchange.com/questions/80339/possible-benefits-of-high-level-surveillance-and-post-privacy (But later found quite similar question highly voted, with quite useful answer: Zero Privacy: Culture )
It seems that it is not only fully my problem: What would be the possible issues with an IQ based voting system (The system that he proposed slightly skewed system towards high IQ people and caused quite big outrage and with post concerning us literacy tests for blacks...)
