I’ve felt the same as of late. Whether outrage over a confederate flag, random knock-out games, or some silly lion in South Africa, people are becoming …. simple. And that will compound real and more important problems of the day.
“….realize a very important and vital lesson about the mental faculties of your average American. And that lesson is they are no longer capable of logic, reason, empiricism or sanity. Worse, they’re so selfish and narcissistic, they happily put their emotions over principles and the rights of others.”
So true. I see it often in my practice, where greed, emotion and id outweigh respect for others, kindness, and logic.
The lowest common denominator is becoming more common.
