Along with my academic work, I labour to add to the quality of decision-makers in public sector. After over 15 years in political consulting and program development, I agree with the following statement of Immanuel Kant:

 

That kings should philosophize or philosophers become kings is not to be expected.

Nor is it to be wished, since the possession of power inevitably corrupts the untrammeled judgment of reason. But kings or kinglike peoples which rule themselves under laws of equality should not suffer the class of philosophers to disappear or to be silent, but should let them speak openly.

This is indispensable to the enlightenment of the business of government, and, since the class of philosophers is by nature incapable of plotting and lobbying, it is above suspicion of being made up of propagandists.
