The professional class has gone woke and alienated and lost the trust of the people and the explosion of conspiracy theories is just one manifestation of the consequences. As you might expect, they are willing to do anything but examine their own behavior which has led to this loss of confidence.
“Last month, millions of Americans watched as President Biden took the oath of office and, in a high-minded Inaugural Address, called for a new era of American unity.
But plenty of other Americans weren’t paying attention to Mr. Biden’s speech. They were too busy watching YouTube videos alleging that the inauguration was a prerecorded hoax that had been filmed on a Hollywood soundstage.
Or they were melting down in QAnon group chats, trying to figure out why former President Donald J. Trump wasn’t interrupting Mr. Biden’s speech to declare martial law and announce the mass arrest of satanic pedophiles. …”
Personally, I don’t read the New York Times to catch up with the news anymore. I read it to see what political narrative our enemies are pushing on any given day. Millions of people are less intelligent, less educated, less tethered to reality and less able to discern news from narrative than I am. They believe what people like Vox Day, Andrew Anglin and Alex Jones are saying on any given day.
Note: This website steered clear of QAnon, COVID-19 conspiracies, the Stop the Steal rallies and election fraud narrative, etc. We also always pointed out Donald Trump’s failures.
