Recently, I mentioned that modern America seems to be drifting toward Rule By Actresses in which the complaints and antics of actresses dominate public affairs. While not unknown in history (e.g., Peronista Argentina), this is a fairly novel concept in human thought judging by how not only is there no Greek or Latin word for “rule by actresses,” but how the phrase had never been used in the history of the Internet before. As I summed up:
I hope it works out well for us.
Today’s news in which 65-year-old actress Roseanne Barr, having pulled off one of the more stunning comebacks in TV history — first reassembling her great supporting cast (John Goodman, Laurie Metcalfe, etc.) and then winning giant ratings — blew up her revived “Roseanne” show with a pretty suicidal tweet reminds us again of why the concept of Rule By Actresses had never occurred to any political political theorist before.
