The Secret Reason for White-Hot Rhetoric Today

The fabiusmaximus site has a post on "The Secret Reason For Hot Political Rhetoric", and the following was my response, which goes to the heart of the problem--not just political--as enlightened by my discovery of the re-formation and design of the Earth's surface by the "gods" of ancient "myth":

There is some truth in laying the problem on "tribalism" (which is a clue that the past is the key to the present), but that is focusing on the symptoms, not the disease. The same criticism applies to your proposition that the Democrats and Republicans are coming together, towards a "unified ruling class", and the citizenry then becoming "apathetic and passive". The question is "Why", in both cases.

The reason for these symptoms, however, is simple: Dogma over reason, leading to a crisis of general incompetence in judgment. The truth is that divisive, false dogmas have been too long nurtured, by the various factions and groups in our societies. This is now a climactic time, when these chickens have come home to roost as it were, and adherence to one's favorite dogma(s) is ascendant over competent reason, on every front, in every confrontation. Thus, emotions rule. As a "hard" scientist--a physicist by education and long experience--I first identified this general incompetence within science itself, after making a revolutionary discovery that falsifies the very paradigm by which science has sought to advance ever since Darwin--that paradigm being undirected evolution of all that science observes in the world. Having made that discovery, I sought to bring it out to the world, only to find the world reacting with determined avoidance behavior, that increased the more I tried, even to the "white-hot" stage you refer to in the political discourse. (No, I'm not saying the white-hot political rhetoric is in reaction to my efforts to be heard; I'm saying it is due to avoidance behavior, primarily on the Left, against anyone trying to bring out the truth in any given situation--the Democrats have been fiercely battling any recognition of the truth throughout the Obama presidency years, for which I have been calling them the Insane Left for most if not all of that time. "White-hot" rhetoric, blatantly false, and perverse (as they have only been painting themselves into a smaller and smaller corner, trying to promulgate and defend what cannot be truthfully defended), is all the Insane Left seems able to call forth now.

But add in the stealth bipartisanship shown by the Republicans, and the resulting disconnect (ever deeper, ever wider) between the two parties and their "constituents"--the people, who don't like what their representatives are doing--and one can see it is not just the Left that is insane today, i.e., determinedly, obsessively avoiding the truth.

The preferred dogmas of that "unified ruling class" are, increasingly, simply not those of the people being misled.

The problem is too-long nurtured false dogmas, some for decades, others for generations, the worst throughout known history. This is a climactic time, and a hard test for all mankind. Because, finally, new knowledge needs to be properly confronted, and accepted by all, and very few are ready to do it.
