Somebody once said we are all Americans, sometimes born in the wrong places.
I decided to join my new homeland.
I've come to appreciate the ideals that helped create this great country.
My most favorite Polish politician
says that Democracy is not the best system. In fact, he spells Democracy as any other 4-letter word. He prefers a benevolent monarchy. His arguments are pretty strong: half of the people who vote are below average as far as intelligence is concerned and most people can be bought. Most politicians stay in power relying on these two facts.
I still prefer to believe that Americans are different. But many recent elections are not very encouraging.
piece from TCS Daily is very interesting.
People do a good job of managing their own lives in a complex, modern society. When they think about subjects like politics and economics, on the other hard, people tend take off their thinking caps and embrace pleasant absurdities.
