This is why modern machinations are so dubious. With specialization and technologically-abetted distractions increasing, the majority are progressively incompetent about most things - even as each lends a singularly sharpened tool to corporations and nations. Ex hypothesis, specialized populations are unable to meaningfully monitor the processes of which they are constitutive. This has ...
