Governance in the 21st Century

While many agree that institutions are in a crisis there is less consensus about what happens afterward, if and when the crisis is resolved. How will the brave new world look? To answer this question is necessary to advance a hypothesis about the causes of our present troubles. One theory advanced in an AEI paper by Leo Linbeck is that burgeoning complexity has overloaded existing structures into collapse. Intrinsically human beings can only operate within a range of complexity described by the Dunbar Number. "We can maintain stable social relationships with around 150 people—Dunbar’s number, named after British anthropologist Robin Dunbar

I waded through this article even though I am computer illiterate and got lost about a quarter of the way into the piece.

So what is the writer´s bottom line - that computer science can save us from ourselves?

FTA: "...(W)hat is at the end of the tunnel after the crisis? The most likely answer is that the current hierarchical systems, including big Siren Servers like Facebook, will devolve into distributed systems with consensus interfaces through a process of ´greenfield refactoring´ or ´genetic takeover´ -- whatever you prefer to call it."

There´s no need to go into ´greenfield refactoring´ or ´genetic takeover.´ Such concepts are well known to all here. The idea of the dissolving of Facebook is appealing.

Concepts like "greenfield refactoring" and "genetic makeover" are completely beyond my ken. Almighty God gave us the capacity for rational thought, and IMO no science or computer programming will ever substitute for that or steer it in some direction preferred by secular forces. But then, that´s just me.

Palin was the only
bright spot in 2008 race
Canada Free Press, by Jeff Crouere    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 5/12/2018 11:00:31     Post Reply
In his new book, The Restless Wave, and in an upcoming HBO documentary, U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) expresses regret about choosing former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate in the 2008 election. According to The New York Times, in the documentary, McCain refers to the Palin selection as “another mistake” he made in a long political career. In his new book, McCain reportedly claims that former Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, a Democrat, would have been a better choice for the ticket. McCain noted that his advisers convinced him not to choose the Democrat, so he

Premium cigars have second chance to

TAMPA — A "Save This Factory" banner will be rehung next week on J.C. Newman Cigar’s Ybor City factory, and the company’s savecigarcity.com website lobbying against government oversight of premium cigars will be relaunched. Both were tactics that company president Eric Newman used to fight the Food and Drug Administration as the agency weighed whether to lump in premium cigars with mass-produced stogies, vaporizers and e-cigarettes as part of its regulatory expansion over tobacco. His effort failed, and in 2016, the FDA chose to regulate premium cigars. But Newman and his industry have a second chance under a new administration that touts itself

In “Robert Mueller would prefer not to” we took a look at Special Counsel Mueller’s reluctance to proceed with criminal case he has brought against Concord Management, one of the three Russian entities he has indicted. There I noted that Mueller appeared not to anticipate that any of the defendants would appear in court to defend against the charges. Rather, Mueller seems to have obtained the indictment to serve a public relations purpose, laying out the case for interference as understood by the government and lending a veneer of respectability to the Mueller Switch Project. Concord Management appeared through counsel

Iran Overextended
PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 5/12/2018 7:05:58     Post Reply
The recent exchange of fire between Iranian and Israeli forces along the Golan is supposed to highlight "the nightmare scenario Israel is facing: arch-enemy Iran entrenching on the other side of its border with Syria." The conflict is real. Only its scale is uncertain. The prospect of actual war between Tehran and one of America´s closest allies may have forced Trump to cancel Obama´s nuclear deal with the Shi´ite power. It would have been absurd to continue the arrangement with the ayatollahs in the face of a conflict in which the US could not be neutral. But is it a nightmare

In another land, a long, long time ago, I was a student of languages. It was there that I came across the American left’s obsession with corrupting the language. In my last year in college, I had American Literature taught by a Fullbright exchange professor. I will never forget the moment the poor man – talking to a class of 36, all women as such classes often are – let slip the innocent word “him” to mean an indeterminate gender. He paused, went white, his eyes widened, and he said, “I mean, I mean, he or she.” Meanwhile, the class of 36 was staring at him in puzzlement. It took us a while to take it all apart and realize he thought we’d be

All that’s wrong with the
left in one Politico article
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article

Did Politico’s Evan Mandery set out to expose the authoritarian nature of the American left in this article called “What Happened to Alan Dershowitz”? I’m not sure. Regardless, he has done a good job of it. (Snip) There’s nothing wrong with “harshly critiqu[ing]” Dershowitz for his legal analysis of the persecution of President Trump, provided the criticism is of his arguments, not the man. But “shunning” and refusing to “tolerat[e]” are another matter. It reminds me of the old saying “friends don’t let friends vote Republican,” with its authoritarian overtones. But Dershowitz isn’t even voting Republican, he says he voted for

Gun Manufacturers Fire Back at
Dick´s Sporting Goods, Halt Sales
PJ Media, by Caleb Howe    Original Article

Sporting goods retailer "Dick´s" is losing access to several popular gun manufacturers´ products in a retaliatory strike, as the companies withdraw their business following a series of public moves by the popular store. Dick´s made some news last month when they first pulled from their shelves, and then destroyed, what they characterized as "assault-style" guns in their inventory. That stunt followed their statement earlier this year at the time that they pulled the guns from the shelves that they were "committed" to several new gun control objectives. We will no longer sell assault-style rifles, also referred to as modern sporting

In case you´ve never heard of her, Elena Delle Donne is a WNBA star. The current WNBA leader in career scoring average, Donne is a past league MVP winner who plays for the Washington Mystics, my hometown team. And I had never heard of her before today. During an interview with ESPN´s Outside the Lines, Donne complained that the reason I and many others aren´t familiar with her and her fellow WNBA players is because Adam Silver and the NBA do a poor job of promoting women´s basketball. The interview was prompted by a tweet Donne sent to ESPN's Michelle Beadle that said, "We continue to cover the negatives

This week, my state of Connecticut hopped aboard the "Resistance" bandwagon, loaded up a gun made by one of the many firearms manufacturers who have been driven from the state, and shot itself in the foot. It did so by officially signing on to an unconstitutional enormity called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an ingenious mechanism for disenfranchising residents of small states in order to nullify the Electoral College, and make them feel good about their own suicide. Connecticut is joining a growing alliance of liberal states in a "pact" that would supposedly allow them to change the way presidents

(Snip) Though he began his writing career in his early twenties at National Review – having spent a brief time as a Jesuit – Wills has spent most of career as an ornament of the establishment left, turning up frequently in the New York Review of Books and, along the way, winning two National Book Critics Circle Awards and a Pulitzer Prize.

WASHINGTON – President George W.

The price of greatness is responsibilities. One cannot rise to be in many ways the leading community in the civilized world without being involved in its problems, without being convulsed by its agonies and inspired by its causes,” Bush said, quoting the prime minister, after accepting the Atlantic Council’s Distinguished International Leadership Award in Washington on Thursday evening. “If this

The ever-well-meaning Starbucks Chairman, Howie Schultz, more terrified of bad publicity and claims of racism than anything in the world, has just announced a rather customer-unfriendly policy of opening Starbucks bathrooms (as well as table space) to all comers, including people who won´t spring for a $4 cup of coffee. Speaking to the Atlantic Council, Schulz, according to the Washington Post, Schultz said: “We don’t want to become a public bathroom, but we’re going to make the right decision a hundred percent of the time and give people the key,” Schultz said, “because we don’t want anyone at Starbucks to feel

This week in Australia during an interview with Julia Gillard, Australia’s first female prime minister, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said there was still “a very large proportion of the population” that she said was uneasy with women in positions of leadership. Clinton said, “There is still a very large proportion of the population that is uneasy with women in positions of leadership, and so the easiest way to kind of avoid having to look at someone on her merits is to dismiss her on her looks.” When asked about the “lock her up” chants, Clinton added, “There is

A prominent Vietnam veterans advocacy group is calling for a Trump administration official and a retired Air Force general to be fired for their demeaning comments this week about Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). The Vietnam Veterans of America on Friday condemned the remarks from retired Lt. Gen. Thomas McIrney and White House special assistant Kelly Sadler, as "disrespectful and offensive" and demanded their employment be severed "immediately." The Hill first reported Thursday that, in a closed White House meeting with communications staffers, Sadler dismissed McCain´s push to block the confirmation of the president´s nominee to head the CIA, insulting him

On Thursday´s edition of ABC´s The View, Whoopi Goldberg weighed in on CIA Director-designate Gina Haspel´s testimony at her confirmation hearing yesterday, who stated that torture does not work, and "The Guy In The White House," President Donald, who said that "torture works."

"I think people who have actually been tortured who are saying that this is not a good thing you should listen to them because you have never been tortured and neither has Dick Cheney."

A former Democratic congressman from Chicago, heading to prison for the third time, says he has “given up on America” and plans to move to Africa after he serves his latest sentence. At his sentencing Thursday, Mel Reynolds, 66, got six months in prison for failing to file tax returns on more than $400,000 he received for consulting work. He also received a scolding from federal Judge Robert Gettleman, who told the Harvard graduate he could recall thinking to himself in the early 1990s that Reynolds had tremendous promise. “It's a tragedy that you squandered the opportunities you had and the type of person you could have become,"

When Hillary Clinton lost her bid to become President, I thought she´d realize that her time was over and that she should enjoy her sunset years with her family and friends. Little did I expect that she´d embark on a second career by making herself into the object of continuing ridicule. (snip) We already know that Hillary Clinton probably has Parkinson´s Disease. Camptocormia comes as a later manifestation of that disease process. Back braces are commonly used to help with camptocormia.

As death flutters around the back-yard deck of Senator John McCain, it’s sad to read reports that the scrappy Sandcutter regrets picking Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate and wishes he had instead picked Senator Jos. Lieberman. The only person diminished by this kind of talk is Senator McCain himself, and the heroic Arizonan deserves better.Not that we lack for love of Mr. Lieberman. The Sun was the first newspaper to sketch the rationale for Mr. McCain to bring in Mr. Lieberman as his running mate. That was in an enthusiastic editorial called “The Logic of Lieberman.”

Police were called to Jepsen Magnet School in New Haven this week because an unidentified child was pointing the gun made out of colorful toy blocks at other students. Very few details have been released by the school which serves students from pre-K to eighth grade.
