USA fell down deep rabbit hole

Zero Point Portal

The USA of today is less like the USA of the 90's than the USA of the 90's and (insert any foreign country).  But like a frog in a slowly boiling pot, he never jumps out until he is finally cooked. File:BoiledFrog.png

People living in US who do not regularly spend time out of the country or who do not have connections to other countries don't necessarily have the perspective to see this objectively.  So let's do some guided visualization.

For those of you who are older than 30 years old, imagine it's the 90's (pick your favorite time) and we meet in your favorite coffee shop (Starbucks not widely proliferated yet, and there is a huge nationwide problem of obtaining real coffee, with a few exceptions in major cities and Miami where Cubans sell real espresso).  I've traveled back in time from 2013 and I'm speaking my own reality, telling you what the future will be like.  Would you believe me then, if I told you that:

The change seems to be accelerating.  Main stream news sources are biased and have also deteriorated.  Investigative Journalists such as Dan Rather have been fired or otherwise forced out of their positions.

According to Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh:

Seymour Hersh has got some extreme ideas on how to fix journalism – close down the news bureaus of NBC and ABC, sack 90% of editors in publishing and get back to the fundamental job of journalists which, he says, is to be an outsider.

It doesn't take much to fire up Hersh, the investigative journalist who has been the nemesis of US presidents since the 1960s and who was once described by the Republican party as "the closest thing American journalism has to a terrorist".

He is angry about the timidity of journalists in America, their failure to challenge the White House and be an unpopular messenger of truth.

Don't even get him started on the New York Times which, he says, spends "so much more time carrying water for Obama than I ever thought they would" – or the death of Osama bin Laden. "Nothing's been done about that story, it's one big lie, not one word of it is true," he says of the dramatic US Navy Seals raid in 2011.

In a country that prides itself on "It's not what you know, but who you know" - it's not surprising that in one generation no one know anything.  But they know people.  How many times did you ask someone a question and they said "Well I know a guy..."

So if I had told you all these things in 1990 would you have believed it, that this is not only possible, this was the future?  We live in that world now, and it's changing on an ever rapid basis.  Points mentioned here are only examples, but the known unknowns are not so important as the unknown unknowns!  Or in other words, if a Tsunami is coming, would you want to know?
