I know I have written this before but I keep coming back to that Lionel Richie interview where he talked about as a child he was always told he was "so sensitive" but that is what makes him a good song writer. And I have to believe that describes me. And the reality is that same sensitivity is what made me "uncoachable", and being uncoachable is making me "unemployable." And it's not just stupid internet memes I've seen today. I think about the parable of the talents and if my sensitivity is a gift I have used it as nothing but a liability.
Yes I am trying to convince myself to do something artistic against my better judgement that I have no artistic ability.
In a 2 party political system that basically encouraged gridlock, corruption (bribes, kickbacks, back room deals) is how you grease the wheels to keep the machine of government moving.
In a monarchy, there is not gridlock, so there is no real need for corruption. And if there is corruption, you call it treason and eliminate it like people dream of , but can't, stamp out corruption.
