NYT: Nuclear Attack Schnuclear Attack, What Guam Really Needs to Fear is Climate Change

Via Instapundit, the New York Times will not let a petty little hiccup like nuclear war stand in the way of propagating its lunatic cultist dogmas.


Safe link to Daily Caller for coverage of the religious maniac daily, quoting the Times:

"The island of Guam made rare headlines this week when North Korea, responding to blustery language from President Trump, threatened to fire four ballistic missiles into waters near the American territory’s shores," the linked article reads. "Scientists in Guam, however, say they have at least one other major threat in mind: climate change."

Here's a question I'd like to ask. I'll try to figure out my own answer in the comments. But this is what I'm interested in:

When did you begin to suspect that the people in charge of the government and the media were dumb, ignorant, and sometimes actually deranged, and what confirmed it for you? What were your feelings about this? That is, was it like taking the Red Pill? Was it scary?

I'm trying to remember when this happened to me. Oh, the media I knew was biased; but I didn't realize until the last decade that it was pig-ignorant and incompetent and filled with people who are mentally unwell.

The government -- well, I blithely assumed that people who ran the government (or other major institutions) were generally at least low-level qualified.

At some point I realized we are being led -- or rather controlled, as we do not follow willingly, but through coercion -- by misfits, morons, and maniacs.

It was both scarifying and liberating, in a dark way.

But I think these realizations came kind of slowly and I'm trying to think of major things that crystallized them.

It also changed my opinion of many of my fellow citizens and onetime allies: I now view them as fools and maniacs (or worse) themselves for apparently seeming to continue to believe that Everything's Okay and we're still being led (controlled) by, if not the best and brightest, certainly the somewhat good and reasonably intelligent.
