I am not entirely sure what to make of this piece at Doug Ross’ place, except that it is a righteous rant, if nothing else.
It is now common for some to assume that that those in the White House are intentionally damaging or hampering our economic system and will use any means possible for their progressive aims. I think the discussion stops short of making clear what the intended psychological effects are of not trusting your government to deal effectively with issues (i.e. economy, foreign policy) and distrusting their motivations.
Some commentators come close when they they say that there will come a time when you will not know what to believe, but I do not think this is explicit enough. . . . our most vital institutions are crumbling before our eyes.
Then again, it could be part-and-parcel of the “remaking of America” that some of us have been expecting for the past 5 years.
