ME 2 does a shit job of explaining this, but I think the way it's supposed to work is that the Geth are able to utilize the concept of direct democracy over local networks and over faster than light communication networks in a way that organics simply cannot match. And not only is it direct democracy, but by analyzing feedback from below, the Geth network can revise potential the courses of action and vote on them revising and re-voting until a solution is reached that is acceptable to most of the network of minds. I know we at KiwiFarms aren't a bunch of machine minds that can crunch numbers until we reach a solution, but people on this site have been able to change my mind on a subject through honest discourse more often than in every other community I've been a part of.I've never played Mass Effect but that doesn't make any sense
The Geth would probably need to have some mechanism analogous to autocracy or democracy to decide which viewpoints lose and which win.
