You make the case well, although it’s discouraging as heck! Especially the part about many people not developing the capability for analytical thinking. This terrible trajectory may be a very long one.
Yep. In a next post I’ll make an inventory of all the things that will need to be addressed once the Trump ordeal is over. Education is a biggie!

Just two current library books I recommend to you: William Kilpatrick’s ‘Christianity, islam and Atheism’ and Todd Starnes ‘Godless America’. Oh, and W. Kilpatrick’s ‘The Politically Incorrect Guide to jihad’ as well. Education is a biggie!
Perfect! I have imagined the same situation about the brazilian recent case (right wing coup with very little resistence and further dismounting of people’s working rights and selling of the country assets). And … thought of the same possibility you’ve thought (collective Stockholm Syndrome). I truly liked your analysis.
Thanks. Good luck down there!
