The Modern Media, including the Alternative Media, are not providing objective and reliable news. In many cases the news is nothing more than opinions or analysis on a few points. Often the reader is required to accept anonymous assertions from unnamed sources. In the race to be first and score points with reader's attention there is too little weight put on verification. And give the absence of consequences for missreportage,   other agenda can be pursued with impunity. Unnamed and anonymous sources can no longer be accepted as having credibility, even if, and perhaps specially if, they are supported by the weight of popular opinion.

 

We must become the puppy, finally tired of the game, which leaves us exhausted and looking like fools, or worse. To maintain our dignity and even our sanity, we have only two choices. We must either, opt-out and ignore the game and the potential machinations of our leaders (Many people have gone this route, "Screw you and your dumb game, this is not relevant to my life"), or we must be assertive and take control of our portion of this game by demanding a level playing field which includes our own copy of the play book. Making the latter choice may appear more interesting. But, it demands that each of us must be more rigorous in our thinking and more positive in our actions.

 

The middle road, the path of the dilettante, is dangerous for us personally and for our society. An interest in current events not supported by a commitment to finding the truth wherever it might be, will probably lead to a psychic failure. And it will certainly contribute to the anxiety and confusion of all you communicate with.
Editor's note: for your edification and distraction, here's a video of a puppy chasing its tail.

The (formerly)reluctant revolutionary. I am concerned that human forms of organization and governance have become obsessed with control rather than fair representation of the people. I fear that this will not only stunt our development, but may (more...)
