I have written before about the power and danger of propaganda. Then it was mostly aimed at the far left of the Bernie Sander’s variety, but it seems we have an even more dangerous and sinister form in the words of Trump. His glib comments with innuendo, his playing on fears (largely unfounded or outright bogus) and his pie in the sky promises aimed at beleaguered and low information Americans is scary stuff.
We are reverting to the worst of politics during the 18th and 19th centuries. Instead of evolving we are regressing into stupidity on all fronts. Where is the serious discussion of the serious issues?
The American voters ready acceptance of this propaganda and superfluous rhetoric while ignoring the facts, and consequences is the major threat facing our nation.
