1. "Social Media Rumors" also said Antifa was invading 41 small towns across America.

They weren't, but the gunners all turned out with their MSSAs and tactical vests anyway.

America, you're losing your marbles.

3. There is indeed a basic problem

with many Americans being reflexively quarrelsome and defiant about basically everything, but I also think that is part of Human Nature. It explains why RW propaganda is so effective in getting working-class White People to vote against their own interests.

Hard to say if it's worse here than, say, Brazil, where they're burning down the Amazon out of spite for the rest of the planet asking them not to.

Humans are, by and large, panicky, dumb Apes.
