Skeptic BS: Bushwacked - Seven (102* d) RE: BS: Bushwacked - Seven 26 Feb 01


Little Hawk,

Sleep. With vital issues to discuss and me with insomnia. Or have you forgotten that yes, it really is all about me :-)

The present society you and I live in is a mixed picture. In one sense it is an oligarchy (it's run by a rich elite). In another sense it is a democracy (we have many basic human rights which we are fortunate to have, and which were acquired only through long social struggle).

And we shouldn't be resting on our ancestors' laurels. What we seem to have done is allow the locus of power to move up the hierarchy, rather than keeping it at the lowest possible level. Rather than base decisions on that basis, we let ourselves be swayed by arguments about security and necessity and the idea that things are too complex for any but the experts.

But there was an earlier thread that got into all that.

Regards

John
