Speaking truth to power–futile, or not?
Excerpts from http://smokingmirrors.blogspot.com/ :
The people we would most like to have made aware of the things we talk about are unlikely to ever be curious enough on their own to come here.
People aren’t curious or open to more than they think they already know, so they aren’t open to having their mind changed, if the truth about something they swallowed whole from sources, whose intent was to deceive them to begin with, can be conclusively disproved if they would only take the trouble to inquire or look further.
I shake my head in wonder at the colossal ignorance and lack of curiosity that is the present state of humanity.
The president of the United States can tell the nation that The Gulf of Mexico is perfectly safe for swimming and that not only are the fish safe to eat but that the fishermen should be back out there catching them. In the small print it says that the fishermen are liable if anything goes wrong.
The sheer insanity of this is beyond measuring and the public carries on as if these people had their best interests at heart.
It is beyond my capacity for description to communicate the unbelievable absurdity of the times. Lately, I am in such awe of what I see that I am almost incapable of writing about it.
It’s one thing to be so stupid that you allow yourself to be reduced to the state you are in now but it is another thing entirely to willingly cooperate with your abusers, as if that was all you ever wanted, while being reduced to ever worsening conditions, with no other reaction than unflinching support of them.
