              In this new age of Hypernormalization (Thank you Adam Curtis), the bizarre is quickly becoming mundane and action is losing all meaning. This has been going on for some time, but since the Trump presidency it’s been in overdrive. What people say and what they do have been completely disconnected from each other, and we’re watching it with our very eyes…

              We say to ourselves, “Ah-ha, you’re doing the exact opposite what you stand for[1]” and nothing happens. People point out the hypocrisy, the moral/ethical/political failing, and nothing. There’s no repercussions for the offender, and you’ll find people online not only defending the act, but somehow twist it as an attack on the other side. “Didn’t see that coming did you?” “Triggered?”

              Then people just try to keep point out the hypocrisy while the other side says it doesn’t matter. What the fuck is this? This isn’t discourse.  

              We’ve hit some point where misconduct doesn’t matter. As Trump said, he could shoot someone and not lose voters. If anyone wants to change someone’s mind with a politician now, it’s going to be with what they stand for.  We’ve seen it happen in the UK with Jeremy Corbyn. I think it’s the only way we’re going to see change happen over here. [2]

Thanks you. Life's been rough, but I need to write again

Cool man good to have you back seriously. We are pretty much the antithesis of each others political ideology but what is cool is I find it fascinating to hear your point of view, so any time I see your name I immediately go into a tizzy wanting to read it. Keep on posting. If you click the writers portrait too you can see everything I wrote if you go to one of my articles.

Don't worry, I've been lurking

I'm trying to get more people to write. Right now there isn't really a whole lot of writers hanging around. But I do hope in the future watching it take off with a daily blast of users wanting to write.
