The Right’s New Left

I must be having a hard time understanding how folks think these days.  Back in the olden days, facts were facts, not that there weren’t grey areas; you could figure that most people were all on the same page. Maybe those guys in New Guinea who had been lost for centuries didn’t get it, but anyone in the US who had gone through sixth grade got science and history. Now folks just decide to deny expertise and choose their own reality. I love this concept. It almost seems that the folks who don’t believe in evolution are proving it by devolving in front of our eyes.
