The brightest humans are starting to catch up. Sort of.

One of Earth’s finest scholars gives us a decent “30,000-foot view” on America’s less perfect union. America is coming apart. Obviously he’s not caught up to the present-day site.  America isn’t coming apart, it has come apart.  But he’s close to where we … Continue reading
