    Oh. In politics it happens all the time. One half of the discussion of minimum wages is built on that principle. Or take the social security system or child pornography. All examples of this phenominon.

    But we weren't talking about politics. We were discussing regional differences, and perceptions based on how one speaks, or whether one lives in primarily an urban or rural setting. These would be personal decisions which effect our personal lives.
    "God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
    -C G Jung

    Was that your take on it? And you think that individuals are immune to the effects of unsophisticated decisions, while groups are not?
