Meritocracy...that would have been a great word to use in my post above! I am familiar with the above post you linked to me, I replied to it twice. I represent @bravenewcoin and @expanse as well, I believe I will make a difference in the Steemit community.

Because that can't be the case if they want to survive.

I don't think OP is doubting the meritocratic aspect, if anything it seems to me that they're addressing the fact that the ratio of influential voters to general users maybe isn't sufficient for a successful meritocracy altogether, so the solution is to distribute that voting power to compensate. Maintaining the integrity but compensating for the growing volume.

100% correct
