“It’s all the same and it’s all meaningless.” If they cared enough to have one, it would be the battle cry of the apathetic non-voter. These are the people who are too lazy to differentiate between sides, too intentionally ignorant to look at issues, and too stupid to understand that their servile indifference equates to rabid support of this country’s problems.
They have help, of course, in the form of a mass media which refuses to face facts and cannot resist allowing their biases and opinions to molest straight news stories. The dichotomy between what people perceive and what passes for news is so great that they believe neither.

Surprise! In “The Information Age” it’s harder to get facts than it was sixty years ago. The pablum in the press is provided by people who are no longer interested in truth and whose idea of morality extends to “their side” winning the next election. Call it “situational morality” or the Left’s mantra “the ends justify the means” but nihilism is winning the day. The denial of great truths about the intrinsic value of life and liberty are common – in every sense of the word.
The mainstream media kowtows to power, especially statist and Leftist power, and can’t seem to ask straightforward questions that affect our future. In the face of blatant lies that defy all logic, the press simply smooths its skirts and looks vaguely embarrassed but can’t seem to remember why it should feel shame or humiliation.
