Speaking of prophetic observations, here is a particularly profound one made by Hans Howe back in 2017:
Trump administration lies constantly but doesn’t even attempt to make it seem like they aren’t lying.
Trump’s supporters don’t care about being lied to. You can point out the lies until you’re blue in the face, but it makes no difference to them. Why? Because it is just a game to them. The media lies, bloggers lie, politicians lie, it’s just all a bunch of lies. Facts don’t matter because those are lies also. Those trolls on Twitter, 4Chan, T_D, etc. are just having a good laugh. They are congratulating each other for being so smart. We are fools for still believing in anything.
Well worth reading the whole thing.
