Down in the Foxhole: Distracted, Diverted, Insulated From Reality

 Posted:  September 13, 2014

There are thousands of reports each day from the front. Reports are coming in, videos are being watched, data is being crunched, decisions are postponed, and trying to figure out truth from fiction is a daunting task even for those who actually are trying to find the truth.

After a while everything seems to be personal opinion but your opinion may not be yours because you are so manipulated and saturated by the spin machines.

The linked article below discusses how we are distracted, diverted, and insulated from the realities of the world we live in, and elect people to represent us who are engaged in scamming too.

Two quotes are apropos:

“When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when a cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainment, when serious public talk becomes a form of baby talk, when a people become an audience to the public business vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk of a culture death …” (Author Neil Postman)

“Under these conditions there can be no thought. And, in fact, modern man does not think about current problems, he feels them. He reacts, but does not understand them any more than he takes responsibility for them. He is even less capable of spotting inconsistencies between successive facts; man’s ability to forget is unlimited. This is one of the most important and useful points for the propagandists who can always be sure that a particular propaganda theme, statement, or event, will be forgotten within a few weeks.

It also reminds us why Congresses approval rating is under ten percent. They, of all, have degraded our ability to progress because they cannot even agree on what constitutes a problem to be solved, much less move in any reasonable way to a solution. They dodge, disagree, feather their nests, point fingers, cloud, and, overall, fail do do even the most basic jobs they are supposed to do.

Why do we even have a Social Security system?

Why are we, the strongest military power in the world, making military alliances when no one is going to attack us?

Why do we not produce the energy we have in abundance in the U.S?

Why are so many men and women in Congress incredibly rich?

Why do we need so many laws when none of them are enforced?

You decide whether your incumbent should be allowed to return and continue the charade.

We have already decided our answer is “no”.
