Crushingly sad and spot on, Marley K.

I despair at the dearth of critical thinking in a country where everything is polarized, where’s there’s no nuance, no middle ground, and very litte curiosity. And therein lies the problem, I believe.

But there’s laziness. Social media tells you what to think so you go along with that because it’s easier than finding out the facts.

I had been wondering for a while whether it was just me being harsh on account of my being foreign-born but I’m glad I’m not alone in having noticed this.

Critical thinking just isn’t American strong point, alas. And neither is self-awareness. For confirmation, look at the orange aberration in the White House… 🤦‍♀️
