The Friday Wiki - its all around you

So fucked up is this country right now? I mean gas is $3.50 a gallon, we're caught in a never-ending war, religious fundamentalism is on the rise, the economy is heading south, and thousands of terrorists are plotting ways to turn ordinary household chemicals into bombs you can sneak onto planes.

Our press has failed us by long ago abdicating their responsiblity to bring truth to the masses in favor of currying favor with their corporate overlords by towing the corporatist Republican line.

There's got to be one word that could describe our descent into mindless idiocy. What got us to this point?

One word which certainly fits is hubris. Exaggerated self confidence. Reckless disregard. As an added bonus, the Greeks (who invented the term) regard a hubristic act as causing particular shame for the victim of your reckless disregard.

Sound familiar?
