If We Can’t Drain the Swamp Now, The Swamp Is Going to Drain Us Right Into The Sewer Of History

n America today most people choose their favorite brand of the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel based on the charisma of the news reader, and don’t waste their time tuning into other news options.

What are the criteria for their choice of a news outlet? Does the news reader look or sound authoritative? Are they better looking? Do they have a more pleasing voice? Are they a Male? Are they a female? Are they Gay? Are we not sure? Whatever the reason, it isn’t because they say anything different. It often sounds like they all have the same writers and story selectors. The content is no different.

Do you want to hear the story about how the Republicrat Elite is going to stop the Trump agenda before or after you hear the story about how the Donald is not fit for the highest office in the land or after? Do you want to learn about the latest polls that show everyone hates Trump before or after you hear how Trump the Traitor colluded with the Russians before or after you hear about the insane proposals of the racist homophobe misogynist Trump to build a wall, stop the terrorists from moving next door, or starve the poor? Perhaps the line-up of the stories is slightly changed from one news clone to another but that’s about it. All hate Trump all the time.

When I have a chance encounter and what passes for conversation with so many Kool-Aid drinking low information voters i.e progressive induhviduals the conversation usually goes like this:

Me: What do you think about _______ (fill in the blank)?

Progressive Induhvidual: Repeat what ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune, etc. has said recently stated as if this was their independently arrived at personal opinion.

Or if they’re a Conservative Induhvidual: Repeat what Fox, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, National Review, etc. has recently said.

It’s almost impossible to find anyone who has actually read any books on topics of importance such as economics, politics, sociology, or the History that ties them all together.

Several times a year I attend meetings that are filled with nothing but PhDs, professors, and university administrators. All content experts in these very subjects as well as many others. The results are basically the same. The death of critical thinking has led to a deafening silence in the area of actual personal opinion, a dearth of dialogue, and a collapse of conversation.

The American people, who at the time of the Founding saw blacksmiths discussing with candle makers the pros and cons of constitutions and the meaning of liberty or carpenters debating with plumbers the need for a free economy versus the need for public works. Just read the Federalist and the Anti-Federalist Papers, look at the level of thought and speech and ask yourself, “How do the public debate, and newspaper articles of contemporary America match up?” Today the public debate takes place at about a 3rd grade level compared to the graduate school of those earlier days.
