And in our own brains too? (i.e., actually test more ideas & ideologies, and quickly throw out those that fail to help us navigate reality?)

Where are our objective methods for rapidly reviewing & discriminating progress vs failure in public policy?
Where are our methods for RAPID, prior convergence to consensus goals?
Come to think of it, where's our path to national success? Already out of sight? Do we have a consensus to leapfrog the current horizon and try to catch sight of that ambition again? Do we even have the will and methods to adequately review our situation and reach an INTELLIGENT consensus decision?
We don't NEED any mythical equilibria. We need agile METHODS for continuously adapting, faster. And, we also need agile sub-methods for continuously adjusting all of our methods, faster. We cannot tell what demands the future may throw at us, and hence cannot specifically prepare for them. However, we can determine what sort of adaptive rate we can muster when the hour strikes. We can do that with practice at exploring emerging options. We cannot succeed by insisting upon failed or even existing methods, or persisting with them for too long. There are always things we could be changing even sooner. Why waste time?
