@jpbostock69 @SarahParsons17 @reactionlife Depends what you consider a success. There are countless wonderful things about our modernity we take for granted and many of our problems are caused by forms of extremism. Like most things, though, it is nuanced and too big for simple statements of what/who to blame.
@jpbostock69 @SarahParsons17 @reactionlife Maybe but I'm not sure we've ever had much moderation in our politics or that we were served poorly when we did (Blair/Iraq being the stick moderates are still beaten with). All the problems are (or were) caused by ideologues who wanted either Big Government or No Government.
Wow. Amazed that this old PC booted up and even has a game still in the drive. I'd intended to reformat it but beginning to have second thoughts. CPU is still half decent. i7 950 though not sure I can play much on a GTX 470. https://t.co/i66ucf8XLN
@jpbostock69 @SarahParsons17 @reactionlife Sometimes feels like they cancel each other out. My question is really why the moderates have so little power and why are the ideological extremes seen as so persuasive? When did pragmatism become a dirty word?
