If you can get your emotions out of it, 21st-century politics is an incredibly entertaining game.

It's a never-ending power struggle, more dynamic than any TV show -- yes, even Game of Thrones.

We've got a bunch of goofy storylines in the latest episode of our reality TV show government, and they all revolve around power. Everyone wants it. So everyone is doing whatever they can do to get it.

However, no one will admit to it.

In 21st-century Western society, openly seeking power is gauche. So everyone hides behind all sorts of justifications. They tell us lots of different stories about how no really they aren't trying to get power actually they're sacrificing themselves for the good of the rest of us yeah exactly that's it.

Today, we're going to talk about a few different instances where that's the case.

Will there even be presidential debates between Trump and Biden?

What is the real reason Trump is banning TikTok and WeChat?

What can a white man actually do in this country without being accused of racism?

Where did this obsession with using race as a point of division come from, and what can we do about it?

All that and more!

It was a spicy show today, so y'all should be plenty entertained as we head into the weekend.
