A thought for today

I expect to be disconnected from Your Intertubes for the next couple of days while I head out to The Land That Time Forgot. So I'll pick up on the whole probability and evaluation of outcomes thing when I get back.

Meanwhile, not that I haven't been cynical about politics previously, but the utter dysfunction and corruption of our political culture is just awesome to behold. The corporate media are at the heart of the problem, but the amoral politicians who collaborate with them on behalf of their parasitic corporate masters are equally culpable. Should I despair of our republic, or can this nation-state be saved?

If it can be saved, how?
