The Problem Well Defined — Yet No Suggestions for a Solution

The United States Is Awash in Public Stupidity, and Critical Thought Is Under Assault

The Disease

The Disease

America has become amnesiac – a country in which forms of historical, political, and moral forgetting are not only willfully practiced but celebrated. The United States has degenerated into a social order that is awash in public stupidity and views critical thought as both a liability and a threat.

Not only is this obvious in the presence of a celebrity culture that embraces the banal and idiotic, but also in the prevailing discourses and policies of a range of politicians and anti-public intellectuals who believe that the legacy of the Enlightenment needs to be reversed.  


What do you think?

Do I have any suggestions?

Oh — yes I do.  Opinions are exactly like armpits — everybody has at least two.  And — what are they worth.  Well … everyone must decide that for themselves.

I do think that this article is overly negative and despairing although — I must say — that the article is very well written and tells some facts  without pulling any punches.  But — there exists a huge “however”  . . .

It is a mistake to totally overlook the Great Shift of the Ages which is now upon us.
