LIONEL PODCAST: Immutable Verity. Realistic Disdain. Cautious Pessimism.

This is a subscription podcast. Click here to enter the world. It’s my art. It’s my craft. It’s my expression. And it’s my party and . . . you now the rest.

Build a better mousetrap. Unless your the mouse.​ Just look at your world. Don’t get me wrong, You’re a good person for the most part and you mean well. You don’t exactly commit yourself to knowing everything that goes on in the world, in fact, you’d rather not be bothered. And that’s the way your leaders want it.And that’s the way it will always be.

Edward Bernays noted that, “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.”

I’d rather distract than persuade you. ​True. Information sleight of hand. Journalistic prestidigitation. And look who’s running the show. Mark Twain said, “Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.” Why does he make more sense today?

Enjoy my myriad musings.
