Prompt 020: The Era of the Demagogue
20. When historians talk about the present day, what nickname do you think they'd give it and why? Would that nickname effectively convey the world you lived in? Why or why not?
I'd call this the Age of the Demagogue. It seems to me that these days, there are too many bullshitters who have too much influence over too much of the big picture.
All one needs to do is look at our current president of the United States. How that guy ever ended up in charge of a nation - let alone the one with the largest military in the world - I'll never understand. I'd lump him in the same category as Kim Kardashian: not really worth listening to, with unearned fame. All "style," no substance.
