Why Do So Many Americans Hate Each Other?

That was the question on Facebook this morning. This was my answer.

It’s fear, most likely. People don’t understand what’s happening in our country today and so they cling desperately to the idea that nothings wrong. When someone tries to point out what’s essentially cognitive dissonance, they lash out in fear.

Our “modern” educational system, which places standardized testing above actual learning, has made it all but impossible to recognize that our nation’s run as an empire is over. We have an evil buffoon in the White House who is set on destroying the country from within. A man who has sworn to uphold the Constitution and defend it against all enemies, foreign or domestic, is himself the greatest domestic enemy.

Both he and his corporately-owned cronies in Congress will be remembered, if at all, as petty Neros who fiddled while Rome burned.

I recently read a prediction that Trump will be the last Republican president, that his party won’t survive his administration. I predict that he will be the last president period, regardless of political party.
