Back home. We did end up stopping for a few hours sleep in Kentucky, but drove some into the night. About midnight, I heard Mike Savage and another guy afterward in Tennessee. Heard of Savage Nation but never actually heard him before. If I had to sum up what I heard (it did keep me awake ;-) in one word, it would be "poison."
It's no wonder half of America is angry if they're listening to this sort of stuff. Good grief, he virtually called O'Reilly, Hannity, etc part of a Republican establishment conspiracy.
In the midst of my despair at the irrationality of America right now, I thought perhaps it is time to start a new movement. The word "Remodernism" came back to mind. Yes, we have learned from the postmodern challenge that we cannot be objective. But it's about time we started trying again. One sided talk shows on both sides are poisoning the populace.
We need to return to dispassionate debate across the board, moderated by neutrals, with all major positions represented and objectivity the goal. The bottom line playing field must be evidence and coherency, or the West is lost to tribalism.
