@auxbuss I’ve realised I only got interested in politics when I started seeing it as something I needed to understand because there was a problem to solve. People seemed to be saying things that didn’t make sense to me, so I thought I’d try to analyse what there motivations were to lie to us. I started to try modelling their values and actions. Until then, I hadn’t bothered because I either thought politicians were either doing OK or there was nothing I could do about it. I thought I was better spending my time on other things where I could make more difference but ‘social networks’ have changed the power balance and politicians aren’t doing a good enough job. Society needs more rationalism.
