Up in the air junior birdmen

Since America has temporarily or maybe permanently lost its marbles, and since there’s no silver bullet to solve gun problems, we’re focusing elsewhere these days. The junior birdmen came from a simpler time in America, and they didn’t have to put up with airport security like this. What’s weirder, we ask, the product or the customer reviews? Or perhaps both are normal compared to the freak show that the political media and indeed the non-political media have become. “A republic, if you can keep it.” Sigh. HT: PL

    I clicked on the airport security link and my reaction to it was a desire to crawl into a hole and never come out again. Our country, and our world, has truly become a freak show. Unreal.

    Off-topic, but connected with one of your themes.

    From “The Behavioral Sink”:

    “No matter how sophisticated we considered ourselves to be, once the number of individuals capable of filling roles greatly exceeded the number of roles, ‘only violence and disruption of social organization can follow. …Individuals born under these circumstances will be so out of touch with reality as to be incapable even of alienation. Their most complex behaviors will become fragmented.’”

    I was pondering this in relation to your repeated observation that many, perhaps most Americans have no direct contact with the basic activities that bring them great wealth and comfort. Clearly we’re not suffering from overcrowding in terms of living space, but perhaps we do suffer from a lack of meaningful societal roles.

    Anyway RTWT, as they say.
