The Smarm Offensive

How do you expect people to relate to a mentally ill society bent on wanton cruelty and destruction?

It’s past time for civil words to have any effect on what’s become an exclusive corporatocracy; as citizens we have been atomised. Within this system of stimuli scientifically evolved to bypass the frontal lobes and plug directly into animal compulsions, only grunts and moans are heard. Steered by fear, a love of shiny things and a sugar jones, the mob is corralled.

IMO the only way to restore the possibility of a coherent and worthwhile public conversation is to start with a fresh system; ignoring the old one as much as possible.

How can we ever hope to enjoy a fruitful conversation with people influenced by the likes of Rupert Murdoch? We must exclude trollies somehow.
