Disclosure: I support Ms. Johnstone and I am not a Russian troll, whatever that is. Since I read to inform myself and do not have the time necessary to fact check every assertion, a writer’s tone goes a long way in the decision to trust that writer. I have checked Ms. Johnstone’s base political premise — that the post war democratic institutions that were set up to protect democracy — have been co-opted by power and money and that we now have an unelected power establishment that has subverted corporate media and has given us gross inequality and rapacious foreign policy, and find it to be true. I will take Ms. Johnstone’s truthful invective over your sneering and condescending tone any day. So what if she wrote an astrology book! And “Dear reader…” Please!
