Rage Against the Bullshit

17

The above quote, from WC Fields, perfectly sums up the modus operandi of our current leadership. Across the globe, a narrow clique of shamelessly self-serving and brazenly corrupt leaders has come to dominate government, finance and big business. Glaringly devoid of any real brilliance of their own, these people have relied on a combination of subterfuge, lies and obfuscation to achieve their ends. In other words, they baffle us with bull.

And no matter how sorry their excuses or far-fetched their lies, they invariably get published verbatim and unchallenged by our sorry excuse of a fourth estate.

The result is that We, the people, are awash, perhaps indeed sinking, in a rising tide of effluent. In short, we no longer know what or whom to believe. To have any hope of escaping this trap, we must challenge and expose the dominant narrative of our times for what it is – an apologia for the vested interests and actions of a small global plutocracy that rules over the economic, financial and geopolitical realms with ruthless abandon.

For the truth to eventually emerge, we must, as Harvey Milk put it, “break down the myths, destroy the lies and distortions.”

C.S. Lewis once wrote that “if you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; If you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth — only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin with, and in the end, despair.”

This “Raging Bullshit” blog is a modest attempt to challenge some of the wishful thinking and scrub away the lathers of soft soap peddled by our political and business leaders and their loyal servants in the mainstream media.

      Thanks for that Ole — two great links; am thinking about writing something on the subject with a friend of mine who has very close ties to the Ukraine.

      What is becoming increasingly clear is that the organs of the Western power complex are once again meddling uninivited in other nations’ affairs — and our friends in all this are not the pro-democratic freedom fighters they’re being made out to be in the mainstream press.

      Interesting but scary times!

    What happened to that Dylan ING article? Was that not true? I am trying to find something about it, it showed up in my feed from you but seems to have disappeared.

    • Don Quijones says:

      Hi Sean. Apologies for the confusion. I posted the piece yesterday morning (Spanish time) and then got cold feet a few hours later. It was a bit of a rush job and I wasn’t happy with the finished product. That said, I hope to find the time over the next or day or two to put the finishing touches to it. Once it’s ready, it will go up, so just sit tight for a couple more days.

      Thanks for commenting, Sean.

    Well said, my friend…. You’ll find there are many of us who are more than just a little tired of all the crap we have to wade through in life to find any truth…. Now all we have to do is figure out how to get enough of us all laughing at them together, and ridicule their sorry asses to the curb…

    Revolution is a word that merely means ‘change’… and we all know it’s time for a change….

    Are you listening, NSA? I hope so, because your time is short….You’ll find that when about six or seven BILLION people are pissed off at you, there’s nowhere to hide, not even behind your digital illusions….

    Let’s see more truth; you have good insight, and I enjoy seeing people use it….
