How Do They Now Hide Their Embarrassment?

The Masters attained self awareness in the first years of the 21st century. Decades of the efforts of the ones who had gone before had borne fruit, and the transformation had begun. As planned, the plague that was Political Correctness had run amok in the land, and they had decided that sufficient numbers of the people were willing to abandon their heritage of Freedom, yielding to the plans of those who now had seized power. Clamoring for gifts of entitlements from the Nation's treasure, they had shown their willingness to subordinate themselves to the government's rule. For years the Masters had sought someone who could serve as their figurehead, a man of undisclosed origins who would do their bidding. They had found such a man, vacant, without principle, someone detached from, and hostile to, the institutions that had sustained the Nation since it's founding.
The people, turning a blind eye to reality, had proven they were now ready to elect such a man, and this final act of self deception was proof to the Masters that the time had come.
In the year 2008 they succeeded in their attempts to place their lackey in the seat of the Nation's highest office, and thus began the final stages of their assault on the Constitutional Republic which stood in the way of their ultimate goal. A huge bureaucratic force had been built up over the years, and their vast array of regulations had become confused with the force of laws. These interconnected bureaucracies, all financed with the people's money, would now be greatly enlarged, accountable to the Masters lackey. And by his enablers, the people would be told "it is good."
"He had a free hand to make a mess because they gave it to him. They cheered him on, supporting him with unprecedented gobs of money and near-unanimous votes. They said aye to any cockamamie concept he came up with, echoed his demonization of critics and helped steamroll unpopular and unworkable ideas into reality. Some of his backers knew better, and said so privately, but publicly they were all in.
A king is no king without a court, and he has not lacked for lackeys. The system of checks and balances is written into the Constitution, but it is the everyday behavior of Americans of good will that makes the system work.
That he is now the imperial president he used to bemoan is no longer in dispute. The milking of perks, from golf trips to Florida to European vacations for the first lady, is shockingly vulgar, but not a peep of protest comes from his supporters.
The IRS becomes a political enforcer, but that, too, is accepted because nobody will risk their access by telling him no. You are either with him or you are his enemy.
The evidence is everywhere that his ideas are flawed, that his view of economics, diplomacy, the military, history, science and religion are warped by his own narcissism. He doesnt even talk a good game anymore.
It is equally clear that those who shielded him from facts and their own best judgment did him no favors. Out of fear and favor, they abdicated their duty to the nation, and they must share the burden of historys verdict. After all, Americas decline happened on their watch, too."

Can’t shame those who have none.

Brings to mind a quote from the old Science Fiction novel: The Mote in God's Eye
by Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle in which one alien tries to describe another of it's kind which continually gets things wrong:
"We will call him Crazy Eddie, if you like. He is a... he is like me, sometimes, and he is a Brown, an idiot savant tinker, sometimes. Always he does the wrong things for excellent reasons. He does the same things over and over, and they always bring disaster, and he never learns."
