How Not To Deal With The Apocalypse

Yesterday I suggested you should stop watching TV, not knowing that two days before The New York Times had an article about how more and more people are turning to TV for comfort because they don’t like the President! They are watching Maddow, The Daily Show and Saturday Night Live:

There is a new safe space for liberals in the age of President Trump: the television set…

Traditional television, a medium considered so last century, has watched audiences drift away for the better part of a decade. Now rattled liberals are surging back, seeking catharsis, solidarity and relief.

No matter what your opinion of Mr Trump I am sure that you recognize the fact that his election is a portent of The End Times (or maybe that The End Times came and went and we are only now figuring it out.)

You don’t survive the Apocalypse by fleeing reality, that just gets you marked by the beast or eaten by zombies or whatever metaphor you prefer.
