  1. As long as the most critical element given is the lowest priority nothing will change. Because society, culture, values, low-information-based decisions and the level of adolescent, pathological dependence won’t change.

    Until academia is restored to its classical, pre-1970 emphasis on knowledge transfer, critical thinking and historical perspective, McKinsey can generate all the reports it likes. None of these other factors will shift sufficiently until the public is forced to engage in a reality check on where current policy is leading us. That can’t happen when a critical mass of citizens are indoctrinated from birth – via our corrupted academic institutions – into the mindset that has pushed this nation into decline.

    “intentions” and “feelings”, if they fail, oh well, the elites won’t pay the ultimate price in the end. Worse comes to worse they’ll just drop out of politics write a couple books, and do a circuit of 10k plate dinner speeches/lectures, as they mentally masturbate their followers.

    Then of course they know the halls of congress and where to go to work their insider trading schemes as they scream about evil wallstreet insider trading.

    remember it’s all about “intentions” and “feelings”/ reading minds and forgetting all about circumstances and following the SORELIAN MYTH PARADE.

    Here are 5 better ways:

    1. Get rid of Obamascare
    2. Get rid of Dodd-Frank
    3. Get rid of Obama
    4. Get rid of Biden
    5. Get rid of extended unemployment benefits, foodstamps and easy SSDI access

    You will pick up 3 million jobs (and 1.5 – 3% GDP) instantly.
