Do some folks seem more attracted to apocalyptic scenarios than others?

Nah, Militarism and Apocalyptic cravings are different thangs…kinda like Nazis and Zombies (though sometimes one can turn into the other)! The former’s more about supporting Military power and Nationalism while the latter’s about folks losing ‘meaning’ in life and feeling powerless, usually of their own doing.. or not doing. Though if it’s any consolation, libs have both kinds too, same as conservs. So while Trump has his MAGA ‘left behinds’, instead we call ours “Berners” (aka, “both sides are the same, burn it all down”). But either way, the Apocalyptic folks are ultimately just self-destructive fatalists… aka, “my way or the highway”.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
