Everything we know is wrong

imageMaybe it is just the way of the world, the manner in which power manifests itself to us, its tentacles reaching into every aspect of our lives.

  • As I have learned in my lifetime, if we want to know what is true in our everyday political lives, we must avoid journalists. They are required to lie for their living.
  • If we want to know what is true about the products we buy, we must avoid advertisers. They are required to lie for their living.
  • If we want to know what is true about our history, we must avoid historians, who are only ‘credible’ to the degree that they dress up scoundrels as saviors and villains as heroes. They are required to lie for their living.
  • If we want an education, we must avoid our schools, whose function is quite the opposite, to dumb us down and prepare us for eking out mundane existences, steeped in the lies of journalism, advertising and history, sans curiosity.
  • And, as I have known for some years and is finally coming out in the mainstream, if we want to be healthy, we must avoid food corporations, their products, their scientists, and professional nutritionists. Our children are not just obese. They are being poisoned and are very sick.

    So, when did “quality of life” actually begin to decline? Technology, along with your list of prime suspects, has given us what exactly?

    Remember that picture you used of yourself on the internet?

    “The National Security Agency is harvesting huge numbers of images of people from communications that it intercepts through its global surveillance operations for use in sophisticated facial recognition programs, according to top-secret documents.

    The spy agency’s reliance on facial recognition technology has grown significantly over the last four years as the agency has turned to new software to exploit the flood of images included in emails, text messages, social media, videoconferences and other communications, the N.S.A. documents reveal. Agency officials believe that technological advances could revolutionize the way that the N.S.A. finds intelligence targets around the world, the documents show. The agency’s ambitions for this highly sensitive ability and the scale of its effort have not previously been disclosed.”-NY Times

    Any regrets?

      All I gots to say is that the only pictures showing up in google search on my name (and presumably the NSA db) are images for an african american guy’s mug shots in PA. And a phony one I put up on my FB page.

      Seed the nsa db with as much bad data as you can, while you still can…

    • Regrets? I am but small potatoes, and so no one cares what I write. I don’t think Obama is sending any drones my way. And anyway, my photo is on my driver’s license and passport. What’s the big deal?

      However, I should say in my preemptive defense here that I am in perfect health, have no drugs or illegal substances here in the house, do not engage in child porn, am not suicidal, do not own any weapons, don’t drink and drive, so that if anything happens to me or if I am arrested after an agent finds a trove of kiddy-pics in my basement, I have been either been murdered or framed. If I should appear in the news with bright red hair and bugged-out eyes, I have been drugged.
