Committee on the Present Danger

When the powerful think really hard, they are fully capable of producing a load of very hazardous garbage.

The purpose of the garbage (its "recommendation") is to force the center of debate, dialog and deliberation from where it inherently and indigenously belongs, to a place where they can be in full control to set the agenda. (The rise of authentic, indigenous democracy appears to be the real present danger.)

Daydreams are not just solace to the poor and the downtrodden. They afflict the rich and the powerful, too.
