Requiem for Civility: This Is Already Trump's America
Huffington Post - 5 months
I just had a surprising and disappointing experience on an airplane. Upon immediate, in-the-moment reflection, I realized that I have no good excuse to be surprised. A cultural movement: The reality-competition genre took over television over a decade ago, and barely an episode of any given reality TV show goes by without several contestants repeating this mantra. It's become integrated into the American psyche: I'm not here for you, is the implication; I'm here for what I can get from you. I arrived at Reagan National Airport an hour and a half before my flight this morning. I do try to be prepared, particularly because I tend to be forgetful and have made my own travels more complicated than they should be due to this forgetfulness and occasional confusion. Since my early 30s, "brain fog," sometimes in a way that feels like the early onset of dementia, has made life a little cumbersome. But you know what? After having regularly lost my car every single time I part it since m ...
