From Wealth to Power: The Unusual Origins of America's World Role

This original and well-written work takes up an intriguing question: Why did the United States not expand for over three decades after the Civil War, when its power was such as to present few external obstacles? Expansionist projects proved abortive, Zakaria argues, because of the institutional weakness of the American state from 1865 to 1889. Growth of national and presidential power, in turn, accounts for expansion in the 1890s.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
This should be a viral message!!! Which government employees or officials do you think should get a snail Salerno of $1:00??? I do think it should start with reducing the salary of every representative that voted to do this to $1 first for the rest of that official's time in office before applying this to any other government employee. Then those people be the first to give us feedback to see you working for nearly nothing. Please call you representatives and elected officials to let them know such reductions should start within their own personal ranks and salaries.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Hillary won the popular vote by nearly 3 million. A friend said that should have been enough. True! So the GOP idea that most people in the nation support their agenda is dead wrong and they better realize that! When they act on their agenda more will soon dislike that agenda. The plan to undermine social security safety nets, further undermine our environment, educational, and labor rights and fairness will soon show in full force. Hillary lost the wrong states and there is a good chance she did that on her own along with the con the GOP has for years played on those same voters they played them this year until the custom designed ruthless, con-man emerged to snatch those same pre-programmed voters filled with ideas of how the Mexican, poor and muslims were going to ruin their world take their money, jobs and security away.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
I found this a disgusting move on Trump's part after whining about not taking his own prissy little dull faced boy out of school in the middle of the year and moving his wife and son into the White House on January 20th. It is also going to cost the public a fortune to protect his three wives and that herd of kids he had with them and their families as well. Isn't he just so special. I am not feeling in a respectful mood about Trump yet... I keep hoping I'm wrong but Trump just keeps showing his disregard for anyone but himself every where he goes, with nearly everyone he appoints and when ever he opens his mouth or tweets.

If you want to save democracy, learn to think like a scientist

Fake news is running rampant on the internet, but blaming social media sites like Facebook for not filtering it out doesn't address the larger issue at hand. Bogus news isn't the real problem: The problem is that we undervalue the type of critical thinking needed to spot it. We shouldn't expect a social media site t
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
This article discusses the importance of developing critical thinking skills... and the danger of lacking critical thinking skills. Children in school change by the second grade from kids you can barely contain and hold back ideas you would never dream to sitting and waiting to be told blow-by blow what to do next. The increased weight and importance we give to testing these days encourages improving the behavior of listening and doing exactly as expected to be rewarded. Even in a visual art class by the second grade students begin to come into the room and sit waiting for you to tell them exactly what to do and what "YOU" want from them.

 I would add one needs to also think like an artist. Do not see only what you think you see or try to figure out what someone else intends for you to only see and respond only to that but seek every tiny detail. Reality can be very abstract up close, but as you bring those details in by more objectively seeking out all the details and even with improved subjectivity you begin to see more clearly and understand how to piece together and communicate what you see and understand, 

Improved subjectivity means really listening to and understanding what your "gut " (your own actual data collected by your senses of sight, hearing, seeing, touching and tasting ) tell you and understanding what emotions and reactions those  senses trigger. That means carefully observing not only verbal information but becoming keenly aware of all types of data your mind reacts to both consciously and unconsciously. Building critical intuitive thinking skills is as important and building rational critical thinking skills. False news and marketing  people are masters at going directly for you intuitive reactions.  Most of us have extremely underdeveloped thinking control or even awareness of our intuitive thinking which can override rational thinking in a heart beat. People will behave far more readily the way you want if you go straight to the intuitive reactions.

A man that has studied this is Dr. Thomas Nelson....https://polisci.osu.edu/people/nelson.179
