Reality Oriented, Dr. Tim Morgan at Surplus Energy Economics has posted this clear assessment: The post-truth economy , Posted on September 18, 2023 THE UNTENABLE SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF There’s a plausible case to be made that we’re living in a “post-truth” age, and have been doing so since well before that term was “word of the year” for 2016
IMHO, the "Post Truth Era" began on 11/22/1963, and was pushed over the cliff on 9/11/2001.
Years ago a friend insisted drones would be used for good things like to deliver medicine. I laughed and said really? He and his nurse wife and 2 beautiful kids are all jabbed up, and we don't talk anymore.
I saw the item about the floods in Greece, first I'd heard of it, and the most disturbing ramifications spelled out therein.
Glad you r able to do these reposts and such as work is keeping me mostly too tired to do more than. The next day's work, then repeat rinsed....
Oak seedlings: may you find truffles :-))
WiFi can see you.......it can touch you also. Lectures about it in reverse recognition schooling.
Thanks for the coverage on Greece. Oh they have been so injured for so long by US interference- eg Olympics bankrupting them w US interested debt mongers as the debt-drug dealers. Anything the US does involving other countries must be assumed to serve narrow special interests and the devil. That assumption needs to be presumed in public hearings with the onus on legislators to prove their innocence. Proper use of a Napoleonic Code in public policy and we might consider crowd sourcing the debate settlements! Never mind Real Housewives -- let’s see some Real Legislators and Special interests reality tv with prizes for discovering the hidden payoffs. Truly, Dr John -- we need new thinking and public engagement around economic systems that work for everyone. With his many problems and unknown dimensions, one thing about The Donald was his pragmatic approach and successful and historical record breaking interventions with raising the workers wages before C19 insanity. While the conservatives are the freedom people for caucusing, I’m afraid they are unable to understand what FDR did. Levin is good on the Bill of Rights but cherry picks regarding the varieties of skullduggery in the 2 parties prior to the zombie demonRats arrival on the scene. I’m old enough to remember Reagan and his take on the ‘immoral’ boycott by Cesar Chavez and his complicity w emergent globalists in destroying American steel and auto, which were the highest paid blue collar jobs in the country. The machinists were sadly destroyed shortly after. Never hear a word about that from Levin but he’s excited to have amassed some kind of case about FDR. Probably there was a lot to find -- but it doesn’t nullify his contributions. Like a bad prosecutor, the conservative picks a target and then makes a case. I’m afraid we need a new model to make a compact -- one that supports merit and risk but also appreciates the efforts of all of labor and those who strive from the bottom. How will we get there? There has to be some pragmatic ideology and a long study evidence review program that the public is exposed to. Probably only 10-15 percent of folks will really engage, but we need something of a modern update that throws out all the grifters and caps personal profiteering within a capital appreciating marketplace. I don’t know if you look at Matt Gaetz from Florida, but I think the Congressman has a start with single topic bills that can be read and voted on separately. Continue to be the resilient luminous beings that you and Jenny are. 💜
Holy cow re the "WiFi can see you" ! Chalk another one up for Ethernet.
