       I don't want to know much more about the people controlling my country. I know too much already and I can't imagine knowing more will help me sleep any sounder.

       Let's see who would go into politics under these terms. I suggest desparately vain people, soul-less psychopaths and those who are happy to sacrifice their families. I suggest further that these groups are already over-represented in politics, and that this idea would exacerbate the situation. [-]

       To the contrary, if one's every move was to be documented in real time by a wide audience, the pressure to behave appropriately would be enormous. These are exactly the conditions that need to be institued in order to clean up politics.   

       If nobody was up the challenge, then we wouldn't have any politicians. That too would be an improvement. But I suspect there are more than a few people of integrity who would rise to the occasion ...

       That would only work if they have at least a few personal spaces on 'off-duty' moments.
