Looking at it another way

Once one understands that the entire raison d’etre of this government is to loot the Titanic before it goes down, it all makes a twisted kind of sense.  The brutal cynicism, rabid venality and shameless lies all have a certain logic to them once one accepts that they know the ship is holed, fatally, and will, definitely, unquestionably, go down. They’re even taking the lifeboats. We’d better build some of our own.
