a bunch of crap. THIS is why no one who has NOT lived off their own business for a year should be allowed to hold political office of any kind. It’s NOT an IQ issue, it is an experiential learning issue. Those who don’t have such experiences don’t usually get it. Yes, there are indeed some exceptions, but, let’s say, if I go from the University to the House I just probably won’t get it. This would be a very different country is that were in place.
Centuries ago, Sulla thought he solved the political problems Rome was facing by enacting sweeping reforms on this scale (not all of them good). We sure could use reforms similar in scope today! Won’t happen, but it would be better.
