The Establishment Mindset

When I was in junior high school our class took a field trip to New York City to visit the United Nations building. When I taught public high school in the 1960s I was instructed to weave certain basic themes in throughout the year. Our view of world history was to emphasize the growth from smaller, less centralized governments and geographic units, to larger more centralized governments culminating in (You guessed it!) the United Nations.

These agents leaked distorted information to the press (or at least to those portions of the press controlled by the establishment). The establishment then changed the rules regarding whistle blowers to allow second-hand information to qualify. The Mueller probe had failed to unseat Trump. Their effort to convince the people that a recession had arrived also failed. They therefore, needed to come up with new ...
