Lobotomizing AmericaQuicklink submitted by Joan Brunwasser Permalink

|Knowledge begins and ends in human memory. And by extension, we as humans have a deeply encoded spoken and written language, carrying a great range and subtlety of meaning and experience to record the good and bad lessons of history. Denied the right to view and understand the language of history, that faculty is stilted, lobotomized. We are as stones in the dark, impediments to our own progress, prey to the thieves of information who come like gravediggers in the night to steal the past. With corporate media as the anesthetic of inquiry, lulling millions of Americans into a no-pain stupor, the pointed, well-sharpened scalpels of intelligence go to work, leaving just enough brain to keep the public shuffling to work and back and through the steps of ritualized life.|
