Way too many Americans, especially those who allow their reality to be defined by Right Wing media, “Presidential” tweets, evangelical “end times” beliefs, the beneficence of the “free” market, and the hocus-pocus of the “Prosperity Gospel” con artist preachers—
have seemingly and willingly turned their backs on reality, truth, logic and science.
As long as they are able to continue their excessive consumption habits, they seem to be
perfectly content with willful ignorance, and are comfortable with allowing their corporate masters tell them what to think and say; what to believe; and ,mainly what to buy.
As we have seen, their numbers are great enough, given the anti-democratic design of
the Electoral College, to elect someone like Trump. I think they will do it again.
