This is an excellent article by Steve Cortes. His subtitle is:
Here is the harsh reality of the American ruling class: they are as dumb as they are corrupt.
Here’s another insight:
Presently, anyone who doubts the prevailing ruling class framing of the Russia-Ukraine conflict is immediately castigated as a puppet of Putin, a lover of authoritarianism. But in reality, patriotic, dispassionate realists see this conflict as an inevitable consequence of years of lies and failures from Washington, Brussels, and Davos.
Does this sound familiar? If you voted for Trump, you’re a Nazi. Don’t believe in the jab, you’re anti-science.
This is definitely worth a full read.
