@Munchaab - Yes it must be a conspiracy.

Oh wait perhaps I'm using a VPN. In Australia we all use them. Chuckle

"I hate you idiots but read this because it's been thoroughly researched by some effete academic-type person that agrees with me."

NO.

I've never been an angel here on earth, and for that I won't see the heavens... I'll probably catch hell

The following is an exert the full article is :https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/09/how-america-lost-its-mind/534231/

"Each of us is on a spectrum somewhere between the poles of rational and irrational. We all have hunches we can’t prove and superstitions that make no sense. Some of my best friends are very religious, and others believe in dubious conspiracy theories. What’s problematic is going overboard—letting the subjective entirely override the objective; thinking and acting as if opinions and feelings are just as true as facts. The American experiment, the original embodiment of the great Enlightenment idea of intellectual freedom, whereby every individual is welcome to believe anything she wishes, has metastasized out of control. From the start, our ultra-individualism was attached to epic dreams, sometimes epic fantasies—every American one of God’s chosen people building a custom-made utopia, all of us free to reinvent ourselves by imagination and will. In America nowadays, those more exciting parts of the Enlightenment idea have swamped the sober, rational, empirical parts. Little by little for centuries, then more and more and faster and faster during the past half century, we Americans have given ourselves over to all kinds of magical thinking, anything-goes relativism, and belief in fanciful explanation—small and large fantasies that console or thrill or terrify us. And most of us haven’t realized how far-reaching our strange new normal has become.

Much more than the other billion or so people in the developed world, we Americans believe—really believe—in the supernatural and the miraculous, in Satan on Earth, in reports of recent trips to and from heaven, and in a story of life’s instantaneous creation several thousand years ago.

We believe that the government and its co-conspirators are hiding all sorts of monstrous and shocking truths from us, concerning assassinations, extraterrestrials, the genesis of aids, the 9/11 attacks, the dangers of vaccines, and so much more.

And this was all true before we became familiar with the terms post-factual and post-truth, before we elected a president with an astoundingly open mind about conspiracy theories, what’s true and what’s false, the nature of reality.

We have passed through the looking glass and down the rabbit hole. America has mutated into Fantasyland."

So glad your thinking for yourself.. Imagin that?

daydream
Copy that..!

Damn where's my pencil?

The Wikipedia page for The Atlantic has the issue with Obama on the cover.

The author of that long-winded piece is a self-hating Dane/Norwegian socialist/atheist who is in shock Americans were tired of being ignored by cosmopolitan coastal fart-sniffers who forgot that even rigged elections with thousands of paid-for transportation vehicles to take the mentally retarded descendants of slaves and paupers to the polls can sometimes not go in their favor.

The brilliant man-child is in shock and so is his chosen editor-in-chief.

This puzzles them.

It's because they're whores. They truly believe that their way is the way and the light. They're a cult.

It's why they lost.

I hate these people. I've hated people like them my entire life.

They're conformists to the state and they only care about minorities because they're a vote and a means to eliminate people who look like them.

They're cowards because they hate themselves but they're too weak to kill themselves.

Instead they want to be Khaleesi (sp) and have their new Americans worship them like they're the fucking dragon queen.

I hope they die from worry.

They're the worst kind of parasite.
