Something to Know - 18 December

Jeff Danziger

There is this article from The Nation magazine that has begun circulating here in Claremont (courtesy of Merrill Ring).   The author is Professor Susan McWilliams of Pomona College, and it offers a view of "Trumpsim" that began back when Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson wrote Hell's Angels: The Strange and Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs . It may help to understand what is being thrust upon us and advice (warning?) on how to react.

Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance. 

H. L. Mencken
