say, ‘If the Congress were more representative of the people it would
be better.’ I say Congress is too damn representative. It’s just as
stupid as the people are, just as uneducated, just as dumb, just as
selfish.” ~Dean Acheson

Many thanks to readers who have made suggestions about how to put the site to better use.
Some have suggested we open it to opinions from readers. That's a nifty idea, except for the work it places on the editor whose main objective is to spend LESS time fiddling with this site...not more. We have never installed a program through which readers can automatically post comments. There's a danger to that, including attracting nonsense, obscenity, scams, and more.
Wrisley.com was launched in the late 20th century as an adjunct to a radio talk show. It's a personal blog and does not rely on commercial income. It's a blog dealing with views and opinions that are usually out of step with the political mainstream. See Radical Independent Party for an example.
We also think there are lessons to be learned from the the study of democracies by Professor Tytler. See Cycle of Democracy. Throughout history experiments in democracy have crashed and burned. It seems reasonable to try to discover why.
The LINKS PAGE in the upper right box remains live. It contains lots of links from the political left and right.
Bottom line: This site is not going away. It is being re-worked to make it easier for its aging editor to handle. Drop us an email if you have any suggestions. John Wrisley, Ye Ed.
