Trumped Up Trickle Down
The Ochelli Effect 6-21-2018 Carmine Savastano
The newest paradigm of toxic politics. Trump, Trump, everywhere, and not a drop of other news to drink.The politics of outrage.
Most Thursday nights on the show are spent discussing troublesome issues from the past. This time instead of Sinister History Carmine and Chuck examine the light speed loss of reasonable debate in the most current of political landscapes. What is the result of news entirely? It’s not all fake news but how real is the illusion that there is nothing else to focus on aside from a cult of personality. Chuck and Carmine do not see the subject in the same way.
Do all roads lead to Hitler? Is Trump the salesman for Fascism 2.0? Political beliefs have quickly become far too similar to religious dogmatic reflexes. This is a dangerous time in what will be our history. Things will get worse before they get better. What will you do? How will history treat this period. Chuck also compares today to the point of time during the civil war in a somewhat unique way.
