We fool them.

One day we'll be able to tell our grandchildren about a time - long, long ago - when something called "journalism" had us persuaded that the information it passed along to us could be relied upon as being (mostly) true, accurate, and indeed, reliable.

And they will smile indulgently at us for thinking that they could believe such a preposterous thing, or indeed even caring about it, one way or another.

Because they will have been taught the enlightened view that facts do not really matter; only feelings and opinions do.

And we will be reaping what we have stood by and watched others sew for a generation or two.

We will have a pretty good idea, then, that all really is lost for our society, for the hopes of free men and women to remain free.

As we look at the uninterested, vacant smiles of our grandchildren, and know how little - how very little - there is in the minds behind them, ashamed for having let it happen to them, day-after-day.

Until it was too late to save them . . .

To save us.
