  •  you are way lower in your estimate than the polls (6+ / 0-)

    the polls of the consumers (don't have citizens any longer) which give congress a rating of 10%

    how can you be lower than the reality of polls of people who don't have a clue about what is going on?

    OK. I will give you another chance by bringing in another voice.

    What if 'the public' is an abstraction that undermined commitment in the West?

    If that were true, the use of statistics to get the public opinion would be a further fraud.

    There is much more involved in this 1846 critique by the Danish theologian and philosopher Kierkegaard.

    Here is a link to an article that has, at least for me, real insights on how far we are today in understanding what matters.

    Kierkegaard noted that we are no longer able to make the distinction between what matters and what doesn't matter.

    My comment is a snark on the use of 0%. Said another way, the political system is unable to decide what matters from what doesn't matter so a  little thing like a poll is just part of the noise.
