superposition Free

Superposition: In any network with 2 or more sources, the current or voltage for any component is the algebraic sum of the effects produced by each source acting separately. The superposition of forces in a mechanical/electrical network results in compromise and allows the building of better bridges and interfaces. Using one ideology is like using half of a pair of pliers to grasp something. My avatar represents the % of approval, by party, that our congress enjoys. John Adams wrote in a letter in 1780: "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." "I was no party man myself, and the first wish of my heart was, if parties did exist, to reconcile them." GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Thomas Jefferson, July 6, 1796.

    Hard for a progressive to be heard when the right-of-center and far-right are fighting for control of the government, isn’t it?

    Hearing that, makes you wonder if there is as much chance of the Republicans turning progressive as there is the Democrats will. Why do Democrats now fear progressives so much?

    Before I could vote, decades ago, the Republicans were conservative much like the rest of the world’s conservatives, not a right-wing extremist cult taking dangerous risks for their post-Eisenhower ideology. The demographics of the world’s population are changing and they fear that they will be treated the same way that they treated minorities since the inception of the Goldwater-Nixon Southern strategy ** The cult-like members was always ready for an outspoken person like the resident and are willing to ignore his dishonesty and deception as they feel he share their anxiety about the changing world population demographics.

    The GOP successfully fused ideas about the role of government in the economy, women’s place in society, white evangelical Christianity and white racial grievance, in what became a “long Southern strategy” that extended well past the days of Goldwater and Nixon.https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2019/07/26/what-we-get-wrong-about-southern-strategy/

    We would have a different government if to be a federal representative, the median US income divided by the candidate’s income could not be less than 25%. Of course, we would need to see their tax form to get the denominator.

    What is truly frightening is that we dare to think of designing , programming, and training AI while we cannot even communicate effectively with our own (even next-door) neighbors if they are perceived as “different” than us. Technology is changing at an exponential rate yet some of us are unable to fully adapt to the skills needed for this century (and, yes, I’m including myself in that group).

    There is a dichotomy between those who design and those who use computing devices. Both fear what the “machine” can do, but the technophobes credit the technology with more power than it has while the designers sometimes are not rigorous/cautious enough in their analysis of possibilities.

    I’ve lived in my current neighborhood for 35 years. Back then, I trusted that my neighbors would make the same decisions that I would. Now I’ve been told to believe that is not so and all the opinions have been bundled by the politicized media to stereotype Democrats/republicans, … (e.g.)my Republican neighbor is NOT supposed to have solar panels on his roof or recycle and compost.

    We hate the cable companies’ bundling and most are cutting the cord to get the selection that we really want. Likewise, with only two (entrenched) political parties, there are many single-issue voters, who have to hold their nose to get the person elected that believes in that issue.

    Maybe it’s time to do our own fact-checking, ignore the opinioned media, and cut the political cords. We deserve/need more than two badly bundled choices of political ideologies. We should at least try to elect, those who will work across the aisle, to get the best solution to an issue, … if there are any of those people left.

    This seems to be a problem as even some AI has been shown to have a bias. The jury duty that I was part of included finding a jury that was satisfactory to both sides.

    I would be satisfied with loyal Democrats/Republicans being replaced by people whose only loyalty is to our constitutional democratic republic and ALL of its people.

    Usually, I will try some food again, as it may be an acquired taste (e.g. scotch, olives, Brussel sprouts, in my case), however, possum stew is on my once-is-enough list.
