commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Talkandpolitics……Interesting book-talk about Wingnuts……

C-span2 just ended a great talk about “Wingnuts: How the Lunatic Fringe is Hijacking America” by John Avlon. Lots of thought-provoking stuff about a political system that encourages playing to hate and fear to strengthen the extremes on both sides.

A few things on the positive side was how the center always prevails in the long run, but a disturbing problem is how to adjust the whole concept of political government made for an industrial age to the new and shifting realities of the information age.
