What were once dark conjectures about the future are now facts about the present.
Where American society once had pride in being part of the Western Enlightenment, its younger members have been taught to seek “emancipation” from its influence.
Where truth was once immutable it is now ephemeral.
Where privacy was once sacred, it is now nearly extinct.

I haven’t paid much more than cursory attention to it myself for whatever reason, which should by no means be construed as my having rejected it, mind. It’s an intriguing concept, certainly, if not tremendously helpful as a guide to what might be done about the shit sandwich with which we’ve been presented.
