Why do we need to “Rethink?”

What has become clear from my work, studies, and interactions with all of these people is this: There is not one policy issue, or one party, or one ideology, or one new app, or one budget, or one election, or one clever meme that stands in the way of systematically better governance outcomes.

What sort of assumptions do we make in our politics and governance in 2021 that are equivalent in scope and impact to people who believed the earth was flat?
