What is the role of reason and technology in governance?

Farhad Manjoo in his July 7, 2016 column in the New York Times (ow.ly/prsT100dEeu)  laments the state of reason and science in the way Americans govern themselves. Although he doesn't state it as such, we do indeed govern ourselves by 18th-Century principles and institutions. Other nations, especially the European Community, have progressed way beyond what we do in America.


 However, they, too, have not come close to reaching their potential. What is needed is a new social ethos and set of public values in which an enhanced respect for reason and science is a component.


 The Action Manual lays out the role of reason and science in a 21st-Century America. Check out Chapter 6, especially, for a detailed explanation.

    Undeniably imagine that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be mindful of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the same time as folks consider issues that they just don't recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as smartly as defined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
