Sounds like a solution, right?
If we agree, than nothing else really matters because that is consensus and consensus protects everyone from feeling left out or abandoned.
So, can we agree to agree?
The concept of consensus has been around forever. But it is becoming more and more an insidious part of our culture. Pundits say television is a reflection of our culture.
OK, so what are the most watched programs on TV?
Reality shows like the Voice, American Idol, America’s Got Talent…..what do they all do? They ask the audience, what can we all agree on? Through digital communications everyone in the collective room (the country) can have a say
That may work as entertainment, but not so well as a way of governing. How else can you explain the complete collapse of the deliberative body of government?
