*** begin quote ***

You don’t have to be Hegel to know that if the thesis is 100% belief in the media, and the antithesis is 100% disbelief, the correct synthesis is somewhere in between. While the media is obviously paid to lie about a long list of extremely important matters, it also sometimes publishes or broadcasts accurate information, whether by accident or because the billionaires and security wonks at the top of the military-corporate power pyramid don’t really care about suppressing those particular nuggets of truthful information. The sum total of lies and truths told by authorities normally congeals into a somewhat vague and nebulous consensus reality, a set of “public myths” that most people accept and embrace, expressly or tacitly, and use to guide themselves in their collective actions.

*** end quote ***

He uses the line “today’s soulless atheist-materialist barbarian elite” to describe the new “priestly class” of “celebrities”, “experts”, politicians, and bureaucrats who produce NOTHING while being immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy.

I don’t know where this leads us to anything other than some type of “civil war” for the heart and soul of America.

I doubt that I’ll be around to see the collapse, but it’s surely coming.

I guess we need a criteria to evaluate the tin foil hat “conspiracy theories” per centage probability that they’re true in whole or in part.  Remember that some past “conspiracy theories” have been proven true. Some were not completely wrong, And, some are just hanging around. I open to suggestions as to what the scale should be.
