Postscript:  (Feb. 2018)

       In the Preface section, at top, I listed four critical facts which would underscore this entire project.  Now, one year later, this research more than illuminates my Trump hypotheses: 


  1. 1.Indeed, Russia and many others -- even Americans -- continue to openly attack our country with no punitive response from the Republican Party.  This will only worsen.

  2. 2.Trump, continuing to believe he is a King, remains humanly unfit to uphold the Constitution and lead the United States.  This will only worsen.

  3. 3.A new perverse form of righteous evangelical bile is deepening, and it is cross-pollinating with many other toxicants.  This will only worsen.

  4. 4.We continue to knowingly fuel our most dire predicaments inside the machinations and misunderstandings of media.   And that our ignorant normative notions of “THE Media” are literally leading us into further atomization (death).  This will only worsen.


And here I would add a fifth point:


  1. 5.We must learn to how to wrestle mechanical communication technologies into doing our bidding.  This project --Critical Media Ethnography -- employs historical methods of archival, observation, appropriation, layering, cut/paste and dissolve, which are robust tools of intellectual iconoclasm (dialectical montage), and which must become universally accepted as vital means for publicly combating mendacious media production.  This must be taught-and-learnt soon, or else...

  

      Yes, this project is over, but today is also Ground Hog’s Day, day 378 of this Dirty Presidency.  We are indeed drifting into a Hobbesian State of Nature: War of every man against every man. Both TV-news and Punxsutawney Phil are saying to expect at least six more weeks of winter.  So I am obliged to continue my media potlatch, and to continue planting more trees, because the Sun continues to give to me... and sunlight is the final disinfectant.  You should do this too.  It’s for your own well being.  For there is no better earth than Earth, no better life than Life, no better experience than Human experience.


     But truly, when all considered, I am left with a sense of profound bottomless loss, unbearable guilt, and fierce resentment toward those now in power who didn’t do what was necessary to ward off this stoppable calamity. (Americans!)   How were we led to this predicament of historical amnesia? (Media!)  What is to come of the rule of law? (Autocracy!)  What have we already lost forever?(Truth!)  Why do we continue down this horrific lethal path of ignorant bliss? (Hypnosis!)  What more could I have done to help stem this rising tide? (Resistance!)   Why keep asking these questions? (Survival!)


     I so wish I hadn’t needed to make this project.  It is up to others now to resist with even more (C)ritical (theory) methods.
