The problem lies not on people's inability for critical thought but people mistaking feeling for thinking. Feeling is easy, no effort is required to feel. Controlling those primal urges is harder. It requires a high degree of self-awareness and mental sophistication to do so–that is the mark of being human. Unfortunately, the cult of feelings is rising and it threatens to destroy humanity.

Something that society at large would not admit, people would prefer the narrative fed to them. It's more comforting to blame the rich than to find actual solutions to inequality.
I don't bow to political gods nor do I use politics as my religion. I don't use politics as a substitute for my identity nor do I use politics to show how good I am or display my virtues to the world. I don't believe in politics that way. I'm a political atheist.
"In the long run, we'll all be dead." Said John Maynard Keynes. A lot of people would quote him and proclaim the meaninglessness of life and glorify nihilism. They use mortality as an excuse for living a life without a purpose, they use it as an excuse to be lazy. Mortality as a license to waste life. That is how I see it.
