The Country's Dilemma is Remarkably Familiar. We are on the pivotal point of a complete meltdown or solidification of our nation's governmental power to govern by the standards of our constitution.

The Effects of Unopposed Power Have Been the Deaths of Millions Autocrats and dictators have been causing the death of millions seemingly forever. Without opposing forces, tyranny begins and people die.

The Saga Continues Some Americans still believe the election isn't over and Trump will prevail. No, these are not stupid people. They are people who succumb to a thinking deficiency that allows them to accept certain logical fallacies inherent in our language.

Living in the "Post Truth" Era. The subtlety and nuance in the "real world" allow the space for interpretation and with that comes our differing opinions. Add in political ambitions and a for-profit press, and we have the post-truth era.

What's Beneath the Chaos We're Experiencing. Today, three primary dynamics have been at work in our society for several decades. When taken to extremes, they create a good deal of mischief in the form of society's convulsions. This article describes those dynamics.

"Houston, We Got Problems, and this ain't Apollo13." Our problems are multifaceted but there are some core issues that make them seem unsolvable. And these are the voters charged with choosing the best people to deal with our problems.

Where's Trump's Replacement for Obama Care? The cost of prescription drugs added to the cost of all medical care is making good healthcare a privilege of the wealthy.

Another Nail in Democracy's Coffin. Thanks SCOTUS! Keep in mind SCOTUS have lifetime appointments. We can plainly see how the conservative design for long range control is being played out. With the help of Mitch McConnell, we now have a well-entrenched conservative activist court that will last far beyond the demise of this reactive political formation that calls itself the Republican Party.

Corona Crisis: A Symptom of the Neoliberal Plague When you want to blame capitalism for our plight, you're only halfway right. It's not the system. It's the neoliberal plague that's infected it for forty years.

No One Can Pass the Democrat's Litmus Tests For some reason, the American mind seems to be oblivious to systems thinking, i.e., how the many systems within which we live affect our actions. This gives us an impoverished model to predict how a politician will act in the future. We cannot only consider the individual and not the circumstances within which that person behaved in the past. We do so at our own peril.

Notes From Fantasyland I think here is a direct connection to the fact that the United States is one of the most religious countries in the modern world; an especially pernicious brand of Christianity not seen anywhere but here. And for that to be true, the difference between fantasy and reality are particularly difficult to distinguish.

"Because right matters. The truth matters. Otherwise we're lost." Adam Schiff. Republicans biggest sin is the destruction of "right and truth." By allowing and defending a renegade president they are corrupting the core values at the soul of this nation. If the United States has been anything, it has been the promise of right and truth; the right contained in a judicial system governed by the rule of law; the truth defended by a free press. Both institutions run by fallible human beings and not always a

Another Reason We Can't Talk to Each Other As one can plainly see when viewing from a more objective stance, the price of ideological possession is regressive individual behavior. It shows up on our inability to see the consequences of our actions even when they negatively affect others.

Taxes are the Lifeblood of a Healthy Society When money doesn't come back into society (like from taxes) and it's kept out of circulation, society gets to a point where it simply can't function. Here's some news that has been proven fake for forty years: Keep taxes low on the uber wealthy and benefits will trickle down to the rest of us.

The Terrorism of Fundamental Evangelical Christianity Speaking of perversions, there is a pernicious religious flavoring in the United States that corrupts the very basis of our inborn moral nature. And that religious flavoring is Fundamental Christian Evangelicalism and it has been insinuating itself into our government since Ronald Reagan.

Helping or Liberating? When we help others in need, are we above the fray or are we playing a role in the system causing the problem? There's enough to go around. Someone is tipping the balance so it doesn't seem so.
