THE BITTER FRUITS OF POSTMODERN SKEPTICISM.

Just go read Miranda Devine's column.  "So unscrupulous are [Our President's noisiest detractors] in their blinkered hunt for Trump’s scalp that they don’t care if the lies they tell endanger people and deepen the divisions in the country, even while they lament the coarsening of the political debate."

It came to this, dear reader, the first time some participant in a philosophy seminar put air quotes around truth.  "Truth is whatever version of reality best suits your purpose."

In response, a plurality of left-behind people were willing to go along with Our President's hostile takeover of the Republican Party.  There's something similar going on among Democrats right now, only we don't see what the resolution looks like.
