Illusory World Views to Pop and Fly Around Like a Balloon?


My stomach cannot endure listening to Bush speak, and always wait to read about it the next day. Here is a very good distillation of his monkey-speak.

We are talking real entropy here.

I have quoted this before, but the ramifications are so astounding that enough attention cannot be drawn to the incredible hubris portrayed here:
The Bush Cult

First, the top Bush insider mocked the journalist and all those “in what we call the reality-based community,” i.e., people who “believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” Suskind's attempt to defend the principles of reason and enlightenment cut no ice with the Bush-man. “That's not the way the world really works anymore. We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality,” he said. “And while you're studying that reality, we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors ... and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
With wishful thinking and hubris in such large measures, this regime will reveal themselves to the world. More and more people are seeing that this war on terror is bogus.

Surely, as self-appointed lords of the world and gods of reality, they think something must be done to convince us we must “stay the course”. They will try to create reality. A reality where we will believe that perpetual war and stripping of freedoms is the only option.

I am pretty sure it is impossible for them to imagine that a scheme of theirs could possibly fall apart, revealing the sound stage and cue cards.

Perhaps it will require an equal measure of wishful thinking and hubris on the observers part to still believe anything coming from this regime.

Perhaps it will require more energy to maintain the walls of belief now firmly ensconced, than to finally allow the truth and horror to sink in.

What each person decides to do with the truth, as an individual, is where we each discover if we are a lion or a mouse.
