Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from a lifetime of experience and from research, more science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. Globalization or Democracy documents the historical roots of Oligarchy, the road to colonialism and tyranny

 Politicians at a very young age realized that they were treated special, that they could get away with things and be rewarded in ways that others could not. They soon realized that they could trade on their personality and not have to work, that they could get elected or rewarded in high school and college without even trying. Later, politisions found that they could thrive in the community without working, getting rich on other peoples money. Hardly a trustworthy trait for representative government or personal character. But that’s what we’ve got.
