SB: stopping bubbles as they build seems to be against the genetic code of our systemYes, and I mean that quite literally regarding "genetic code." Biologic evolution did not leave us optimized to cope with the dangers and opportunities of our modern world. HOWEVER, occasionally cultural evolution comes up with some terrific things sometimes. The Iroquois nation, famously, had a cultural norm that required significant decisions to be made in the context of what would benefit the nation for 7 (SEVEN!) generations. The puritans put a high value on practical jokes, especially those that humiliated the powerful and arrogant, and even skeptical humility has had periods of persistent application.The founders tried to make the USA system of government a bulwark to help humble skepticism. Political evolution seems to have developed immunity and has led to cancerous growths. david fb
