Here’s the latest reader rant, along with my reply!
Tom writes: Your article the other day about the Glendale Sadists (here) is a perfect example of why we left “the land of the fee and the home of the slave,” never to return. Thank you so much for bringing this outrage to light.
Good on Ya!
My reply: I think it’s important to try, while it is still possible. It may be futile – a majority of Americans appear to be indifferent to the gradual (but noticeably accelerating) transformation of the United States into an overt authoritarian police state – but I wonder.
And it’s why I italicized “appear.”
We get a general impression, a lay of the land, from . . . the mainstream press. Even online, the narrative is tightly controlled by a few huge enterprises such that we may have the wrong impression about what a majority of Americans actually think.
As an example: Trump won – and his approval ratings are going up. If you viewed things from the mainstream media perspective you’d have thought Hillary was inevitable – as intended. And – currently – that the country loathes the Orange Man.
To be clear, I am not touting Trump; just using him – his success – to make the point that things may not be as they seem.
Regardless, I feel obliged to give it a go – if only because I am contumacious by nature!
