Take the Blue Pill....

     Living here in Trump Nation, we are presently being admonished to think about our “moral profile” hundreds of times a day.  From the Bleeding-Left to the Alt-Right, every preacher, pundit, prosecutor, professor, and promoter is selling his/her own brand of “commodified virtue”.  Yes, it may be semi-science true that we, the audience, are assigned our "DNA Moral Marker”, at the Conception Lottery, but.....
     No problem, our culture has varigated the Universal Golden Rule Morality to resonate with as many as a dozen distinct identity groups.  For we post-moderns it doesn’t matter whether we are exploring the nuances of Charlottesville, Global Warming or Apple Pie, we can be damn sure that there will be legions of polarized devotees pleading their divergent truth, all claiming the high moral ground.  
     When I  think about it, it is extremely complicated, such that I quickly realize that it’s best not to think about it.  Probably it’s best to just be a "believer" and auto-subscribe to the folly of whichever identity priest pushed our button back about our 14th year.....not!
