I see it differently. People are better educated and more critical than ever before. That gives them the belief that they can understand complex issue. However, global complexity and interconnectedness has outstripped our (growing) capacity to understand--and certainly our ability to focus long enough to have a chance of a reflective view. That leaves people frustrated and liable to believe simplified explanations.

Ally this with a denigration of pure learning for a celebration of applied knowledge and you've got a ship unmoored. 

These things facilitate that blithering idiot Boris and Depraved Donny and promises of easy medicine for the disengaged.
