 The very concept of an institutionalised political party and fans who blindly support it (under any circumstance) – raises serious questions about human intelligence. 

Human intelligence has powered great pursuits such as Artificial Intelligence and space travel. But, in so-called democracies, the way we elect how we are governed and who governs us is Stone Age! We have disrupted every conceivable industry, but our political systems have barely changed.

Doing the same thing and expecting different results, as Albert Einstein said, is insanity. I’d say illusion!
