First, I can’t believe we’re not living in a dream. On my side of the Atlantic, I see the most grotesque things in Trump rallies and think no one would go for any of it, but the crowds go wild. I see the most angry Fox TV attacks in Greta Thunberg and think no one would watch it, and it gets record ratings.
Shows that I don’t have the the slightest clue.
It feels like the answer must lie in someplace like this TechCrunch story: we’ve somehow managed to optimize some media and rallies to help us lose our minds.
