Those who read H.P. Lovecraft will want to read Thomas Bertonneau’s piece at The Orthosphere. It’s titled Woke: Cthulhu Awakens. The whole society does seem to be moving in the direction of the sort of weird, sinister milieu that Lovecraft depicted in his stories, especially the Cthulhu mythos stories.
Bertonneau ties it all up in a convincing package. It’s a good read and it’s thought-provoking.
