Leonard Cohen sums it up perfectly in his song, “Everyone Knows.”

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

  1. My dinosaur of a computer will not let me listen to Cohen so i must rely on the printed text, but I can imagine his deep voice 'singing' these words.

    Unfortunately for America, everybody DOESN'T know and they prove their ignorance almost on a daily basis. The U.S. may be one of the very few nations on earth that becomes less informed as the years go by. That bodes terribly poorly for this democracy. Terribly poorly!
