    In truth, we all have preconceived notions that are resistant to facts--call it religion, superstition, bias--and often we make the opposition to be more monstrous than they actually are.  Sadly, this time they are monsters, sadly this time truth is too befogged for many to accept.  Some still deny evolution---they don't want to believe in climate change--they do have false gods--capitalism.  
    When we were so rich in natural resources, our governmental follies could be overcome.  No longer true--and either the system changes or we disintegrate.  All empires fell for similar reasons--the elite became soft and blind.  Building the 1% has to lead to fiddling while the country burns.  Selfishness breeds contempt which breeds denial of truth.  Too much self esteem is a bitch.

    Under capitalism, man exploits man. Under communism, it's just the opposite. John Kenneth Galbraith .
