I wish we all could just open our minds and start to think, maybe we could learn to adopt the good ideas and drop the ideas that suck.
As kids, my generation knew how to change rules and adjust to changing conditions. Baseball did not have to have nine players on a team, we adjusted to how many kids showed up at the park. If there were sixteen players, then right field became a foul ball. Sometimes you just rotated players from the field to at bat. We made up rules and adjusted however we had to so we could play the game. We listened to the other kids and came up with a way to play.
Our politicians today do not know how to change rules (or ideas) and adjust. They are like the kid who owned the only bat and would take it home if he didn’t get it his way.
Politics today is too much about owning the only bat.
