“When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.” – The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
“The more obvious the truth the more absurd it sounds.” – Me
Think for yourself. I know that’s tough. Especially when it comes to anything political. Or anent news for that matter. You’re spoon-fed pap, pabulum and media-filtered bunkum. And Exhibit A: Ron Paul.
The media are determined (per orders) to vilify and destroy the candidacy of Ron Paul. And as far as I’m concerned, it only makes my conviction and support stronger.
But it’s not just Paul that fascinates me, The way we look at social problems, mental illness, substance abuse, the war on terror (Ha!), UFO’s, crop circles, 9/11 truthers — all that we see and perceive is dependent upon the prism through which we evaluate the world. So to complicate matters, aside from the usual problems attendant to and with media obfuscation, we also have our own idiosyncrasies and biases that filter, limit and selectively eliminate true and actual perception.
I call it micro versus macropschology. The individual versus the system, the society, the world.
