The microbes hijacked from Stormy really would not bother me.  Remember, she sat on my lap back in the 90s when she was Stormy Waters; she was spotless back then.

The ignorance and lying has evidently been passed down to some of his kids.

I would argue it isn't ignorance. People want to do as they damn please, and social norms and order be damned. Both right and leftwingers are afflicted with these tendencies, and begit dismay, depression, and dispair for rational centrist folk. Seeds are being sown, and the harvest will be dreadful.

It wouldn't surprise me a bit if the number tops one million by Feb.

I'll be a bit of a semi-hermit the next 4 months. Shits about to get real.

It's almost like the capitalist system is incapable of taking the steps that would make this less of a fucking disaster.

I don't blame the system, I blame collective stupidity on the part of our nation's inhabitants. We don't live in a post truth world, but rather a post reality world saturated with unearthly expectations of a painless existence, meds, drugs, and video games, junk food, and ingorance.

We live in a relativistic truth world, which is post-truth.  Truth is now defined as whatever someone wants it to be instead of  factual information.  It is by default a sentinel shift in the values of the culture.  It happens across the spectrum and is not limited to conservative, liberal, progressive, or any other label you can identify.

I won't argue about the "unearthly expectations" you mention.  I think you are spot on.  I will say that's not new, it just looks different than it ever has in our history.

Information gets bombarded at us when it happens, whether is has been confirmed or simply spun by someone's particular flavor-of-the-minute thought process. That drives peoples' fear, anxiety, uncertainty, and reactions.  People become protectionistic rather than investigative.  They let everyone else think for them instead of thinking for themselves.

"Collective stupidity" is a byproduct of the system, and not just of the collateral damage sort.  It is essential to the operation of that system, and billions upon billions of dollars of resources are poured into fostering it.
