Seems you think the spread of misinformation by those in power or those wanting to be in power is a new thing. It is not, just gets spread faster to the uninformed and misinformed. You want the demise of freedom and democracy, ruin the beliefs of the voters in their institutions first, the rest will follow. Now I know from posts by you in the past that most of this you will not agree with, but we now have reached what to scientists call ‘critical mass’, the belief in our news organisations has been damaged immensely, the faith in our elected leaders has been destroyed by the widespread propaganda over the last 3 decades by the ‘right’ to a point where one has to wonder if our survival as a united country is viable. How do we turn this around? Well one thing is apparent, things will only get worse under the leadership of a petulant, narcissistic liar in the White House.
