I once read a Second DCA (Florida) case that defined a lie as a misrepresentation of the truth with the intent to deceive. How quaint. I’d like to add, especially as it affects our MSM, that a lie is the deliberate withholding of information. Or the withholding of information and a failure to conduct thorough reportage because of limited resources, funds, support or interest. Let’s throw into the mix a nescient, ignorant and lazy news audience who is rather loath to tackle the unsettling or that which inspires an uncomfortable reaction. Mix into the pot the latest crew, the debunkers, viz. those who scream “conspiracy theory” whenever something is advanced that causes critical thinking or disputes and lays bare a once-believed truth that turns out to be anything but. Our government shouldn’t care in the least about promulgating disinformation; that’s only necessary when a population cares about the issues in the first place.
If man were ever able to control and direct weather, what would the world look like? Is that even possible? Do you think that diabolical and brilliant scientific minds have thought about that? Keeping in mind that since time immemorial, man has tried to influence and control weather through prayer, sacrifice, rain dances, cloud seeding inter alia.
