HOW THE U.S. LOST ITS MIND   – – – when did America become untethered from reality?

The nation’s current post-truth movement:

by Kurt Andersen, from THE ATLANTIC MAGAZINE, September 2017 issue:


In America nowadays, those more exciting parts of the Enlightenment idea have swamped the sober, rational, empirical parts.

Little by little for centuries, then more and more and faster and faster during the past half century, we Americans have given ourselves over to all kinds of magical thinking, anything-goes relativism, and belief in fanciful explanation – – small and large fantasies that console or thrill or terrify us.

And most of us haven’t realized how far-reaching our strange new normal has become, letting the subjective entirely override the objective; thinking and acting as if opinions and feelings are just as true as facts.

Digital technology is empowering real-seeming fictions of the ideological and religious and scientific kinds.

Among the web’s 1 billion sites, believers in anything and everything can find thousands of fellow fantasists, with collages of facts and “facts” to support them.

Before the internet, crackpots were mostly isolated, and surely had a harder time remaining convinced of their alternate realities.

Now their devoutly believed opinions are all over the airwaves and the web, just like actual news.

Now all of the fantasies look real.

  1. all this started in 1945 with the secrecy of the Manhattan project.Which in turn brought out the ufos to see what craziness the humans are up to with the bomb came an immature empire cause England and France had collapsed after ww1. America took up the slack no prior experience at running a hegemony and look how far we come TRUMP is running the show or he thinks he is the deep state is cause the deep state started in 1947 with the National security Act.secrets secrets secrets lets hide the UFO stuff cause it will bring down our hegemony and their is nothing we can do to stop these visitors.(prison guards of the soul if you ask me).the deep state went on and shot Kennedy and the next in line president that was going to expose them Robert Kennedy shot in the head as well. You see when you have a new or young nation like america .which is redneck bigoted running the western roman empire which is still going 2000 years latter and still bombing the Muslim country’s today Iraq Afghanistan Libya Yeman Syria and soon to be Iran. AND then when the oil runs out revenge for 9/11 the Saudis will be next. ally becomes enemy bye bye Wahhabi ideology on the chopping block.
    i hope your seeing the pattern.
    as a UFO experiencer just like Norios mum was too Norio still skeptic well you have too see to believe ive have had 4 close encounters up close and personal and my wife was a skeptic until she saw her mile wide ufo with me mid-day over 5 minutes going over our house great day for me when you see someone you love awaken to the real matrix we all find ourselves in Earth has its secrets and there slowly coming out.
