As I watched PRESIDENT  Donald Trumpf, still ranting in his blistering campaign mode about creating a master race of Americans, I recalled (from old clip) something that George Orwell wrote in his sobering “1984”:

“In a way, the world-view of the Party imposed itself most successfully  on a people incapable of understanding  it.  They could  be made to accept  the most flagrant  violation of reality, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what  was demanded  of them, and were not sufficiently interested  in public events to notice what was happening.  By lack of understanding they remained sane.  They simply swallowed  everything, and what they swallowed did them no harm, because it left no  residue behind,  just  as a grain of corn will pass undigested through the body of a bird.”
