'There has been a sharp shift in opinion, especially among white progressives, on all subjects racial. For most of the latter half of the 20th century, about 10% of white liberals supported increased immigration; now it’s 50% Trumpists have embraced narratives that put race at the center: We real Americans (white) have to protect our culture from the alien (brown) who would weaken it. The opposing narrative is something like this: America began with a crime — stealing the land from Native Americans. It continued with an atrocity, slavery. The American story is the conflict between oppressors who seek to preserve white supremacy and people who seek to move beyond it. The essential American struggle is to confront the national sin, have a racial reckoning and then seek reconciliation.'

The UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES of every transformational era is felt decades later, and only grasped as centuries lay out the reality.

The weaponization of disinformation by the experts who grasp how propaganda undoes democracies, is what we see now.

What did not exist for most of the 20th century was information technology. Tv began in the late 40s, but the mad=men' sue of imagery & memes, and the monopoly on media and the use of tv to sell opinions as 'news' came later, followed by that anarchic space (cyber space) where anyone can spew divisive opinions as fact.
