    And generally in agreement with accepted MacLuhanist principles.

    One saving grace, if you buy into the MacLuhan interpretation, is that electronic media are mitigating th affect of carsa and the like. We are actually becoming more tribal and collectivist in our thinking.

      The too effects of cool and hot don't cancle each other out, because it's not really a single line, but a deep geometry of human and societal trends.

      What we are getting is people who want to be selfish jackasses and who are turning to government and other tribalist drumbeats to achieve that to a greater degree. While the worst of them figure out how to dupe the others into furthering their own most selfish schemes at the expense of those ignorant enough to give them the boost.
