Arresting Abusive Tyranny: Beyond Political Brands

Results matter.  Results matter more than political brands.  Results matter more than the currently fashionable factions embedded in any given system of governance.  Why is the evaluation of governance not based on results, instead of stereotypes or obscene selfishness?  In my opinion, the focus of evaluation should include those who suffer, for it is those suffering that need assistance, those suffering that need relief, those suffering that need to alter their systems of government.

Has political science failed, as an intellectual discipline?  Is brand loyalty driving the lack of well known (and used) concepts and terminology?  Political debates rarely cover results in detail.  Results over time, as societies under brand influence evolve, and ignorable failure modes become ignorable no longer.

Why is accountability for results so rare, often late, and brutal?
