Why We Make Bad Political Decisions and How We Can Make Better Ones By David Moscrop Goose Lane Editions 265 pages; $22.95 Well, it’s election season. Important decisions, like political ones, though, need to be made in the long-form mode, so we don’t elect people who will ignore climate change and the buildup of nuclear weapons. Moscrop argues that we can learn to make better decisions and, as a result, make democracy more vital. First, we have to want to make better political decisions, a self-improvement project that may or may not rank very high on people’s to-do lists. After that, it gets even harder, since Moscrop suggests we need to start engaging in politics with diverse groups of people.
