    Recently someone said: "My girl-fried thinks I've got a 'situational relation' with the truth" I know it all too well from the petite bourgeoisie around here how politely they can talk to you and mock you behind your back. Yesterday morning for example, a young colleague said to someone "J., I've got as question regarding the W-LAN stuff..." and two minutes later he said to others : "I've asked that computer freak about the W-LAN thing..." I laughed and said: "Now I'd find it interesting to know how you call ME when I don't listen." We may adopt different stances after receiving new informations, but it's probably no sign of particular personal accuracy and consistency if such change takes only a few hours time. Nevertheless, I imagine that it is possible to say as Abbas does: "For me personally, I consider the things to be like this, but politically I have to take into consideration the will of others who elected me as their representant."

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
