The media-satiated masses have accepted that the abnormal – the diametrically abnormal – is normal.

The media-satiated masses have accepted that the abnormal – the diametrically abnormal – is normal.:
The policemen of the reprogrammed mind keep whispering: “Nothing to see here – keep moving” and indeed, the reprogrammed mind acts as though there is nothing to see here –
while the imperative of conformism dictates to keep moving, always moving, under the theory that all motion, including that of a catastrophic collapse, is equivalent to progress. The meaningless shibboleths echo everywhere – democracy, diversity, sustainability, equality – while once-great cities such as Detroit, Baltimore, and Philadelphia descend into a chaos of lawlessness and hopelessness amidst a desert of abandoned buildings, falling to ruin, punctuated here and there by liquor-stores, check-cashing businesses, and Plexiglas-enclosed bodegas where a package of beef jerky costs seven dollars. Murder is a way of life – and ninety-nine times out of ten no one cares. Nothing Is Normal « The Thinking Housewife
