It is most difficult to make sense out of what is non-sensible. And maybe that is what the Corporatocracy has brilliantly perpetrated upon us the creation of the non-sensible with the goal that the overclass is in charge and the masses you are not and will never be so give up and tow the line.
Kinda reminds me of the NAzi's "Strength through joy" program. Joy for whom well in the end didn't pay off for anyone in the short term it benefited the NAZI goals.
So it is today short term the non-sensible benefits the democrats. History yet to unfold if the damage was worth it.
