51. The current state and massive trending in our modern America, sadly, seems to fully disprove this
apparently wishful thinking laid out in this article.

I would LIKE it to be true, but from the current state of our nation I would say that sociopaths have the evolutionary advantage and NO structure We the People can create can stop them or even slow them down at all.

Robber Barons in at the beginning of the 20th Century, reduced in power by the New Deal, now dismantled and we have Robber Barons again.

The same situation with our "Media as Watchdog".

The same for colonized nations, who broke free in that great en masse independence of the 1960s.

Recolonized by WTO, IMF and all the rest of the "economic hit men".

I WISH this article were true, but the current data suggests just the opposite.

It suggest that human beings will continue to struggle vainly against the usually fatal (to everyone else) combination of the Rich, Mean & Gullible, who are by far the largest group of the three.

We will break free now and again, in some countries, for short periods of time, but eventually the sociopaths will find a new skin in which to dress an old snake.
