Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Since economic theory is anti-democratic, pretty much by definition"

Example? Economic theory is about the interactions of humans, so I'll expect your theory to be more than the inane "rational actor" crap.

And, please, no presumptions that bad actors drive out good actors, since that is very much a subject of dispute.

Group evolutionary theory, etc. Now that we've finally got participatory communication, rather than broadcast top down communication, it's possible we can figure out how to sort out the overload.

I see the human perception of information as William James' description, "a buzzing, blooming confusion" talking about what the world looks like to a newborn baby.

The question is: "Who's the caretaking adult?"

Align culture with our nature. Ot else!
