To keep with this line of discussion ........

I agree with your pendulum analogy. What has started the pendulum to swing is a knee jerk reaction by those who now forced to acknowledge that wrong is being done. It seems that the greater the political repercussions of the wrong the greater the swing in the pendulum.

To say that change is coming, I put it to all of you that we are living it now. Because it is happening all around us it make it difficult to see, but it is happening. That is where history comes in handy, to identify benchmarks through time to measure where we are now. In short, we canít observe ourselves from the outside so therefore we are driving blind so to speak. Like piloting a ship with the front windows blacked out. By observing our wake we can estimate where we are going.
