Sunday's Random Musings

Yes, your Demon Princess is about to get some religion ~

This article, although at first glance (over) stating the obvious, got me to thinking: is politics stupid because we behave stupidly or is politics making us stupid?

It makes me long for the days when we all seemed to share common goals & good old-fashioned statesmanship was honored & admired. The shrill partisan propaganda--especially from the far right, which has perfected it & dragged public discourse to lows so low the very idea of a democracy (small "d") is seriously in jeopardy--has worn very thin.

Can intelligent & civil discourse in politics be restored?

I’m apparently not the only one wondering. I wonder how the following proposal will fare as we move closer to November.
