I’ve been paying a little more attention these days to what the main stream media thinks is going on.
They report on government data that says the economy has recovered from the 2008 crisis. They also report on the rise of Trump that indicates many citizens are struggling and angry.
They know that incomes have stagnated while life’s expenses continue to rise but they have no clue what is causing this.
They don’t even have an intelligent theory.
On other important matters obvious to anyone that cares to look such as the climate spiraling out of control, the 6th great extinction of species, and human overshoot starting to bite in some of the weaker countries, they say nothing.
It’s quite amazing.
It seems likely we will collapse with most people having no idea what is causing their pain.
