We live in a Kakistocracy

The Kakistocracy blog is fed up with the system, and writes:
I believe the time for measured debate on national topics has passed. There are many erudite books now decorating the tweed-jacket pipe-rooms of avuncular conservative theorists. And none as effective at convincing our opponents as a shovel to the face. But setting that means aside, there is no utility in good-faith debate with a side whose core principle is your destruction. The “middle ground” is a chasm. It is instead our duty to scathe, to ridicule, to scorn, and encourage the same in others. But perhaps foremost it is our duty to hate what is being done. A healthy virile hate. For those of you not yet so animated, I can assure its effects are invigorating. ...

So for those of you perturbed by our blossoming dystopia…All I am saying is give hate a chance.
The word kakistocracy is in the dictionary, to my surprise:
government by the worst persons; a form of government in which the worst persons are in power.
His issues are not my issues, but I can understand that he thinks that there is no good-faith debate with our government and corporate leaders who are selling out the nation.

He uses words like "Narrative" without definition. I guess it means that the mainstream media and elite leaders agree on a story about what happened or is happening, especially when that deviates from the facts or common sense. I hate to make this sound like a conspiracy theory, but the narrative in 2014 was gay marriage and Ferguson racist cops and a few other trivial issues, and nothing about the family court issues that affect millions of people.

CH uses the term hivemind, also without definition. This suggests a collective group-think, where no one is allowed to think for himself. To those with left-wing political views, it is particularly important to get everyone thinking the same as the group.
