Look at our ongoing political situation - we continue to elect crackpots due to our political amnesia. They’ve been placed to GOVERN - to manage what most of us can’t or don’t want to - but they think that they’ve been given some divine right to RULE - and their glaring attempts to hide their incompetence puts the rest of us in dangerous positions. I refer you to George Santayana and Winston Churchill for some irrefutable quotes. Mark Twain provides some zingers, too.
