Iron Triangles

Dr. Paul M. Johnson, professor of the department of political science at Auburn University, defines iron triangles as “The closed, mutually supportive relationships that often prevail in the United States between the government agencies, the special interest lobbying organizations, and the legislative committees or subcommittees with jurisdiction over a particular functional area of government policy.

As long as they hang together, the members of these small groups of movers and shakers tend to dominate all policy-making in their respective specialized areas of concern, and they tend to present a united front against ‘outsiders’ who attempt to invade their turf and alter established policies that have been worked out by years of private negotiations among the ‘insiders.’”

To put it another way, you could say that such people conspire together to support their own interests. But then you’d be talking about conspiracy theories and we all know that’s not okay.

Question to ponder: How many examples across how many industries would you need to see before you recognize the more accurate default position is that any government agency is more interested in supporting industry rather than the public?
That is Logan’s take.

We see it a little simpler. The worldly waves that these agreements are based on are being attacked by a worldwide virus – a real virus, a self-inflicted one like the one they accuse us of getting. This real virus that is attacking the infrastructure is kind of like a fail safe for Us.

They are trying to put an imaginary virus on us while the more they try – a real virus is attacking their computers, algorithms and devices. As beneficial as chem trales.

Nina, in her simplicity sees the fourth element, us, the public are the ‘virus’. The more they try to squelch the fourth element – the louder it gets.
