The absence of curiosity has a lot to do with Trump’s election, Robert A Stribley. Ditto the lack of global awareness (Brexit was a massive warning, America ignored it because it happened somewhere far, far way across the ocean), and the widespread inability to engage in critical thinking.
America gawks at the TV and points the finger and gets all huffy but that’s it.
Plus there’s American journalism sacrificing ethics to capitalism…
(Hey, ATrigueiro, this could be right up your alley BTW, along with everything Stribs writes — you two should read each other, probably.)
