Idiots and asshats are not just born - They are created, in my opinion
I think the system allows Narcissist's to get in .Having 1 inside the system is not good but if you get a bunch of them inside then the system will start to look fascistic . Imagine if you will a bunch of good decent well meaning people infiltrating a fascist Govt . The good tree good fruit analogy comes to mind .
I believe fascists were created by the system
Yeah, I have pretty much resorted to the same. I automatically click "recent" rather than looking at "Top" or "Hot" threads. I already know what it's going to be. All it is is a bunch of bickering between two political extremes that I already know I disagree with, so what's even the point?

The trend is just going towards where I look up "new" threads a lot more often than "top" threads - I just am not a consumer of ATS in the way that others might be - At least, I am not now - I have definitely participated in my share of partisan bashing.
About that think tank ...creating a criteria for such a thing has to start with one person suggesting 1 thing ...I would like to see all of the personality types represented .(Human Metrics) I think there are 12/13 types ..I don't see gender playing a part but a consideration value
I am a advocate of less is best as far as partisan politics go .More parties may add more choices in principal but a full field of independent politicians put into the Govt. to govern for the people takes away any one political ideology from dominating . Let the elected politicians choose from their ranks the president figure head . They all have a job to do and so if any of them fail to fulfill their rolls or are caught in corruption the whole body should deal with that which would be part of their responsibilities .
Swiftly remove red and blue affiliated politicians aside, to vote on a fresh start of 5 or more parties.
Takes away any one political ideology from dominating
Likewise, Thomas Jefferson never called for a revolution every generation or a revolution every 19 or 20 years. When Jefferson said, “God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion,” he was expressing the idea that “liberties are ensured by the spirit of resistance” and that all great nations had rebellions (again justifying that liberty shouldn’t be sacrificed by conservative worry). He says, “We have had 13 states, independent 11 years. There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century & a half for each state.”… so he is arguably justifying a revolution every century and a half more than every 20 years here.
Well yea the info age tied into the IT age make a lot of mental functions redundant . Or could, but I think the swings to different economic models and monetary policy's are decided by tptb . They want to be one or two steps ahead of the game they created and will continue to create ...Its the ultimate tool that someone has and is not likely to relinquish .
Why do these people have to be foreign policy experts? With today being the info age, the policy experts should panel and advise the electors (not politicians).
I am Native Turtle Islander .Caught in the middle of a Corporate created idealism ...where their motto is "what to do about the Indian problem" ...They still haven't cracked that nut ...They do seem to have a historical narrative ready to roll out but that persistent hard shelled nut is still there ...Here is the real big problem for them (tptb) ...They also created the modern state if Israel ...looks like some things can't be un-done ... I like the good version of Robin Hood .
