18. Beautifully written and IMO accurate. But there is a new generation beginning to emerge now.

Different is, well, different. I believe many of this new generation know how to move forward, instead of backward, and they are better equipped to ignore propaganda and shiny objects.

If you assign a number from one to ten to politicians, members of Congress, and those in other occupations requiring neither hearts nor brains, of course tfg is a zero. Almost half of Congress and most MAGAS are also zeros, many of whom are old and on their way out one way or another anyway. The sixes through nines are the ones who will welcome the new generation, and they already know that Earth is not flat, so they will continue to learn. I have avoided assigning a ten, but there are many with both good hearts and minds, so more tens may already be on the way. IMO we can get out of this mess and into a much smaller mess, unless of course, Putin presses the wrong button.
