Denial trumps everything. Speaking of Trump, Donald is a wonderful example of denial at work in the world, living proof that you can fool some of the people all of the time. And there is no convincing the true believers that they have been duped and are wrong to their core. No evidence can be presented that cannot be denied. "The theory expands to explain away (or incorporate) all facts presented to expose the invalid nature of the theory." And we believe what we believe because we believe with complete conviction the truth of what we believe. And are beyond correction, awakening, realization, enlightenment, satori... People argue about opinions! Fascism is grounded solidly upon opinion! Life is lived (and taken) around the world based on ideas that have no foundation and zero merit! Science is dismissed, denounced, despised in favor of fiction, fantasy and fabrication. Apparently intelligent people refuse vaccines because they think they will make them stupid. And the rest of us have to live with that. And, the world is purported to have intelligent design. The Goths and Vandals are always at the gates of civilization, it seems, with no re-set in sight. Happy New Year!

What a witty take on our perpetually tragic condition. I can face any upcoming year if I know one person who is not a true believer. Thank you, Jim.
