“We all know what to do, we just don’t know how to get re-elected after we’ve done it.”
Jean-Claude Juncker, 2007
The politics of our time are characterized by irrationality. How did this happen? What is rational, and what is just rationalization of the irrational? How can we improve on society and thwart the seemingly unstoppable forces of irrationality, privilege, abuse and the small and big lies which threaten to overthrow liberty, freedom, progress and happiness and bring our civilization back into new medieval times? These are the themes of this blog. This is what positive progressive politics is about.
I will make attempts (essays) suggesting ways forward as well as point out fallacies. Egregious cases of abuse, irrationality, evil and dishonesty I will attack in the series Stupidity of the Day, or S.O.D.
