This is the age of denial. We are trying to cope with our increasing ills and the sense of incipient panic they engender by retreating into infantilist denial of reality. We believe lies that should not fool a child. From religious and superstitious bullshit to Trump and Brexit, and even the denial of biology; of “fat positive”, of “you can do anything if you really want to”. Deluded fantasy, all of it. And those who point this out are derided with hyperbolic condemnation and abuse. Perhaps it is us who will be first against the wall, not the real villains.
