Jazz Coleman on musician/politicos
(although I wish he hadnt said the word 'irish')
cos jazz often does not make sense ....to me at least, a lot of it goes over my head

As for 'seeing it' over an extended period. Well I would still be more suprised that people cannot even 'glimpse it' for a brief period, but then again perhaps people do not extrapolate that which they know/hear about the world, and thus do not draw any conclusions at all? I dunno, doesnt make the assessment and understanding that something that is inherently unsustainable will shortly collapse any less accurate......the inaccuracy is due to the non prediction of how irresponsible leaders were in using up the remains of what could be used to help in gentle decline, rather than continue to ramp up and use all that is remaining........I think that the analagy of a star expanding rapidly towards the end of its largely active life cycle, using up the remains of its energy as it expands rapidly, before collapsing even more catastrophically as the energy within can not longer support its size.........perhaps I thought that they would have taken some action based on what appeared to be obvious (which would in itself have caused true visibility of the situation)......and yet they havnt, so there you are
makes me dislike him quite alot. his points are almost nullified
