Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Mr. Jones, it seems to me that you are countering every word I say. Ok, that is your prerogative as a member of this online community. However, objecting a point that is not there is what you failed, miserably, to understand. And who says that the elitist model is more dangerous than the democratic model? You?

And, yes, it is true that oil companies that know more about oil than you and I do, would make the decisions about their companies. If you are so positive, why do not you go to an oil company's CEO and propose that you make the decisions for today's work load instead of him and his or her associates. I am entirely sure they will let you do so. Just, do not forget to write back and share your implications.

True, politicians do not know all the rules of the game when they enter office. They learn step by step, as plumbers and lawyers do, as every single person does. What is more, politics is not mathematics, it is not an exact science. It is about mindset, rational thinking, proper assessment and critical estimation,and many other mental qualities that you do not seem to understand.

It seems to me that you despite politicians. If so, I do not blame you for calling them unskilled. In your opinion, politicians look only for themselves, and vote for whatever it is, just to get reelected. Well, Mr. Jones, I would like to assure you that there is still living the idea of being "politically correct." No doubt, politics is dirty. But what is not dirty in our contemporary  world? With the same ease you stigmatize and vilify politicians, you might as well slander any other social group. So, go ahead, which is next? The plumbers, maybe?
