Lately I’ve been noticing establishment types who understand reality better than independent types. This reversal happens only on specific issues.
The debt ceiling stageplay is a good example. Yahoo Financial gets it. The whole thing is pure noise, and even the changes made by each “side” to finish the negotiation are marginal and temporary, reverted by next year’s debt ceiling stageplay. Meanwhile, the “independents” on both “sides” are treating it as a deadly serious existential crisis.
The Hollywood establishment as heard in the Ankler substack seems to understand the reality of the “virus” better than the vax-screeching independents who are following RFK into the Gaian branch of the same tyranny.
…. Come to think of it, I shouldn’t be surprised that Hollywood knows the difference between stage and reality.
