When listening to political leaders in the West, particularly when describing Syria or “Palestinian terrorists” or the threat from Russia and China, for those with critical thinking ability the statements heard are puzzling. One can’t help but ask, “How do humans get this stupid?
One might also ask, “How do they get elected to public office in supposedly ‘freedom loving democracies,’ but we don’t need to go there now.”
One way of understanding how those who represent the collective efforts of multi-billion-dollar information gathering organizations and the virtual armies of analysts, advisors and experts, and how they get nearly everything so wrong requires an understanding of “process,” or rather “lack thereof.”
