In September, former Spy magazine co-founder and New Yorker columnist Kurt Andersen penned a widely discussed essay for the Atlantic with the wonderful title "How America Lost Its Mind."

The essay's penetrating look at the post-truth culture of Trumpism was a masterpiece of the form, blamed anti-science movements of both the left and the right for the predicament we find ourselves in, and, best of all from our perspective, mentioned Scientology a couple of times (as well as Scientology favorite Thomas Szasz).

Andersen included Scientology as one of the many harbingers that the rest of the country would lose pretty much all contact with reality by the early 21st century.
