All systems (electrical, mechanical, biological, social) need effective
(engineers refer to it as negative feedback).
In society, feedback is the news media's job.
To competent systems engineers or management consultants it should be evident that
American society's feedback loop is seriously deficient.
Without effective feedback systems become unstable.
Dissatisfaction with the status quo cannot be corrected without effective feedback.
With effective feedback we would likely have better leaders in Congress and the White House.
