Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Group evolutionary theory, etc. Now that we've finally got participatory communication, rather than broadcast top down communication, it's possible we can figure out how to sort out the overload.

I see the human perception of information as William James' description, "a buzzing, blooming confusion" talking about what the world looks like to a newborn baby.

The question is: "Who's the caretaking adult?"

as to the first point, this is indeed a radical change, and one that still gives me a lot of hope.

great james quote!

the caretaking adult has to be all of us, that way we reduce corruptibility, that's the real group evolution to theorise. (one of them anyway)

great discussion, btw. the varied and sometimes opposing viewpoints are all well expressed, and perfectly mirror my own schizophrenia about obama.

you make your case extremely well.
