Perhaps it should be marked as {{US}} then? The term "short-sightedness" is very rare in comparison, here in America. --Connel MacKenzie 16:02, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
"short-sighted" is an adjective. "The propensity" is defining a noun. SemperBlotto 16:09, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

"Of the propensity" then, would be infinitely better than re-asserting the circular "foresight" (which is also comparatively rare.) --Connel MacKenzie 16:16, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
I respectfully disagree. ‘Of the propensity’ is unnecessarily wordy, and foresight is surely a common word (which has the advantage of maintaining the visual metaphor). Widsith 16:23, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
