Darius you are the man. I think you have hit the nail on the head for what is the biggest problem in America today. No doubt about it that taken as a whole American’s think way too much. From our top level executive leadership right down to the average man on the street, people are simply spending way too much time deep in thought. Instead of acting decisively with little regard for the consequences like a real American would, they are wasting their time contemplating, considering, and analyzing situations to try and determine an optimal course of action that would have the most benefit overall while at the same time minimizing the negative consequences. Sounds like socialism to me, maybe even communism. Certainly a slippery slope to one of those two. I, myself, have made the case that we should quit trying to remember stuff, but I didn’t have the guts to go as far as you have gone, and to suggest a reduction or perhaps even elimination of all thought. We need more bold thinking like this on the pages of Medium. Oops, I said thinking when I should have said acting. Obviously very little thought was put into this piece which is exactly as it should be. Poorly thought through but executed boldly and decisively. Now if we could just get this sort of leadership in the oval office we might be on to something.
