How to out-think modern liberal democracy

From a goofy and unlikely source:

Creativity killer profile 6: the Narrow-minded Mob

With a stubborn and often headstrong approach, killers fitting the narrow-minded profile ensure their dupes remain trapped in their standard, familiar patterns of behavior. Victims are unwitting casualties of their own habitual ways of thinking and behaving. Narrow-mindedness leads to convergent thinking, and the full creative process requires divergent thinking before a specific focus is chosen. Human thought patterns tend to slip into these standard channels, or set ways of thinking, if they are not regularly challenged. The brain seeks to organize its thoughts--often in response to incoming information--into temporarily stable states that succeed each other to give a sequence. When a sequence or pattern is repeated, it becomes a thought-pattern or mindset that channels future thoughts more easily along the same path. It thus becomes a habitual standard way of looking at a situation or problem. Blinkered expertise, prejudice and groupthink are all examples of the way narrow-mindedness can manifest itself.

To deal with this killer:

Embrace "creative innocence"--try putting aside any notions of expertise, recognize any biases or prejudices you may have developed, and approach a situation as a child would instead. - Fast Co.

There's also simply recognizing that herds converge on the LCD.

This one was just the usual reactionary nonsense. The fuddy duddy elitist mentality is scared of its own extinction as democracy and progress flower worldwide. Check any news source. And the evil dave troll can bugger off. Dave (URL) - 15-06-’12 21:02

There's more to discuss other than Liberalism
These blog posts are getting more and more predictable and stale as time goes on. As a long time reader, it would be nice to see something of intellectual novelty. There's more to discuss other than Liberalism - 17-06-’12 00:01
