I’ve been thinking about Newton’s 3rd law of physics, that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, a law that apparently can be broken, “in certain nonequilibrium (out-of-balance) situations.”
Hey, I think we’re in one of those situations.
Over 50 of my digital (iPad) cartoons, doodles, and photo-mashups about this nightmare, dating back to late 2014:

Once in a while I can’t help seeing our current excremental political situation from the standpoint of the opposition. For example, just yesterday I saw a tweet with a link to an actual story about how American evangelicals could overlook this so-called president’s sexual relations with a porn star because he was subsequently ordained by “God” to become POTUS. How could the views be so different?
What explains the perceptual and conceptual polarization? I came up with the following explanation, a variation on an earlier explanation.
The earlier explanation:
Words escape me.
