Talking heads and intelligentsia are at this point very alarmed at the surreal direction American society has gone (I never understood the wait, myself). I'm not ready to believe that people are that far gone. Many proclaim devout faith in God and Jesus (fundamentalists) and it is obvious they are full of poopoo. What is in my opinion a runaway problem for the Q'ers et al is psychopathy/sociopathy. And long has been (funny how the conservative party and Q-anon have merged into the same shindig).
