It really is true that we seem to be experiencing a very strange period of our history right now. Some see Nazis everywhere - including in Eagles (check out Don Cheadle on Twitter if you want to know what that’s about).
But Dilbert's Scott Adams has just written an excellent blog called "How To Know You're In A Mass Hysteria Bubble" which might just explain it all.
This really is a MUST READ!
Scott begins by telling us "History is full of examples of Mass Hysterias. They happen fairly often. The cool thing about mass hysterias is that you don’t know when you are in one. But sometimes the people who are not experiencing the mass hysteria can recognize when others are experiencing one, if they know what to look for."
