THey should care, this civilization is not only in decline but it is getting increasingly unstable and the Geniuses have not the first clue what to do about that so we all should know what is coming.

Unfortunately most people are now too ignorant to figure it out, and of those who are not most are in denial.

Trump is in the White House for God's Sake...

Things are most certainly NOT fine.
