Rationality Quote for February 2013

28 Feb

Rationality quote for February 2013! This months winner is a pretty good quote; one I wish would get put into practice. At Less Wrong, this quote had the highest karma — at 57 points — for February 2013:

It’s nice to elect the right people, but that’s not the way you solve things. The way you solve things is by making it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right things.

I’m not much of a politics junkie, but it seems to me that right now it’s politically profitable for the right people to do the wrong things. Then again, that probably applies to situations/corporations/institutions beyond mere politics.
