On the night before Halloween in 1938, narrator Orson Welles did a radio dramatization of The War of the Worlds. It was so well done that a few people actually believed that the world was being invaded by aliens.
It’s obvious after the fact that aliens weren’t attacking us. Because we can look around and see evidence that it didn’t happen.
News today can appear murky in the waters with elections and vaccinations but they will be very clear down the road.
No one has a crystal ball. We don’t now what is going to happen next. We take guesses and we watch as things play out. As William Goldman has pointed out, “No one knows anything.”
If you are confused about what is going on the first step is to acknowledge that science fiction isn’t real. It’s an entertainment.
