James Harvey Robinson Quote

“Poltical campaigns are designedly made into emotional orgies which endeavor to distract attention from the real issues involved, and they actually paralyze what slight powers of cerebration (thinking) man can normally muster.”

Ratings and Comments

jim k, Austin, Tx

A perfect description of political campaigns.

E Archer, NYC

Same as it ever was. Rational arguments are simply met with targeted hate, name-calling, and other distractions aimed at raising emotional outcries. This is mass psychology 101.

Mike, Norwalk

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over, and over again and expecting a different result. Those caught up in the emotional orgies and hope for a different result are a dummied down majority.
