    are tied to realistic thinking about complex isues facing a diverse world for them to accept and promulgate a simplistic emotion based explanation that would appeal to all the low information voters. The people most negatively affected by the changes the 1% corporatists have applied to society are by now reactiing mostly from their limbic brain so they can only operate on emotion based (mostly fear) ideologies. The one recent movement that taps into this is the Firearms Background checks legislation. Reasonable fear of having your children and you killed by random senseless violence is moving most of us in ways unimaginable 6 months ago. Pushing safety regulations  could be next to stop the corporatist push for fewer "regulations".  The tragedy in West, TX, each dertailment of toxic chemicals, the lack of taggants in gun powder all affect all citizns and not just the ones in any one factory. There are dozens of others that are being pushed as "environmental" needs when they should be labeled as  threats to our famalies on several levels.

    I'd tip you but they cut off my tip box. The TSA would put Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad on the no-fly list.
