My politically incorrect concern about the present and future is that we, as a nation, are lazily adopting a Peter Pan lifestyle in lieu of reality -- using our imagination to replace objectivity with subjectivity. We view ourselves as proudly autonomous individuals, wiser than the ignorant herd, unconnected from others, allowing us to be personally indifferent to real situations. Every single one of us, 300 million or so, is well above average. We will never grow old, and are joyously following our leader who throws pixie dust to make us happy by concealing and banishing reality.
We all know that our connectedness with others is fading, as the acids of multi-culturism are dissolving American culture. But that is not the worst attack on unity. Sophists, experts in the art of twisting words, succulently present something bad as something good, and something white as black, are the dominant minority, single-mindedly focused on pursuit of power. They tell us how wonderful we are if we unreservedly do what they want, but how unimaginably evil we are if we prefer reality.
Deception is the language spoken universally, in all languages and dialects. Real communication is becoming nearly impossible, since truth focuses on reality, and lies only present imaginary elements of an imaginary universe.
