(sociology) The phenomenon of disbelieving one's situation when faced with grave and imminent danger and/or catastrophe. As in overfocusing on the actual phenomenon instead of taking evasive action, a state of paralysis.
If you don't think nearly every member of the Liberty Movement has slipped into a state of normalcy bias and dismissal, you are probably in a state of normalcy bias.
Despite the Liberty Establishment Intelligentsia who relentlessly preach to us from their on-high perches in the blogosphere that Presidents can't really do anything, a little objective observation will inform you differently.
Example One: President Obama destroyed 1/6th of our economy and the best healthcare system in the world in just one act: ObamaCare. While our medical system at the time was (and remains) horribly corrupted and dysfunctional, he made it exponentially worse.
Example Two: President Trump has begun to unleash the economy with simple deregulation and America First policies and tax cuts.
Both of these events created epic shifts in American life, reaching from boardrooms to soup kitchens. Everyone has been touched by these two examples. And there are many more.
But America is still on the same high-velocity glide path toward a crater as she has ever been.
The reason is very, very simple.
The Red Plague has managed to seduce and corrupt a very strong majority of Americans.
More than half of American households accept some form of welfare from some .gov entity. It is the people in those households, Pig Farmers one and all, who believe they are entitled to the fruits of your labors. This is a corruption of mind and soul, a loss of virtue.
Your neighbors are the problem and they have not changed their base nature under either Obama or President Trump.
Nor will they. They are fouled souls who are willing to take the money stolen from your pockets - then go zip-lining.
If you are stuck in normalcy bias: Pull your head out of your bum and re-focus on the coming Big Die Off. You can ignore reality - but reality doesn't give a whit about what you think.
That is all.
