Just a little while ago, I was having a discussion around the kitchen table. We were talking about what’s happening in the USA and in Europe. And we were talking about what courses we took in school and in college that had best prepared us for life in the adult world. My alter-ego suggested this:
Suppose there were a law that, in addition to being a citizen, all candidates for political office had to pass a test … which demonstrated their skills … in logic: otherwise know as reason.
And then we added: Is there a test for common sense?
