Hegel’s Dialectic of “Choosing Sides”

The other day I posted an article about how we love to believe lies and as such makes us extremely susceptible to fraud, hoaxes, cons, etc. Even when told we have been made fools of, there is little hope that the fooled will snap out of it and realize what is taking place. Ah, the power of the master deceiver.

In that article, I wrote: “…if one lie is what we want to hear, we readily accept that as truth. We must believe in one side or the other, one actor over the other, one author over the other…right?”

Hegel was a 19th-century German philosopher and theologist. His Dialectic has been copied and put into play to the point that it is the controller of all things in our lives – mostly political. Few of us recognize this fact.

I would suggest that those seeking knowledge, study about the Hegelian Dialectic by starting here.

From this study, we discover Merriam-Webster’s definition of dialectic: “…the Hegelian process of change in which a concept or its realization passes over into and is preserved and fulfilled by its opposite.” and “…development through the stages of thesis, antithesis, and synthesis in accordance with the laws of dialectical materialism.”

I have often chosen to place the “triad” of “thesis, antithesis, and synthesis” into “create a problem, embellish the problem, offer a predetermined solution.”

Because Hegel’s dialectic is so active in our everyday lives, it is important to understand what it is and what it can do to us. From the article linked to above, we read: “Hegel’s dialectic is the tool which manipulates us into a frenzied circular pattern of thought and action. Every time we fight for or defend against an ideology we are playing a necessary role in Marx and Engels’ grand design to advance humanity into a dictatorship of the proletariat. The synthetic Hegelian solution to all these conflicts can’t be introduced unless we all take a side that will advance the agenda.   …The only way to stop land grabs, privacy invasions, expanded domestic police powers, insane wars against inanimate objects (and transient verbs), covert actions, and outright assaults on individual liberty, is to step outside the dialectic. Only then can we be released from the limitations of controlled and guided thought.”

And yet, in our insanity, we continue walking down the same street and falling in the same hole somehow believing each time it will be different. The result is less of all the things we once valued in life and more of those “outright assaults on individual liberty.”

We are consumed with Hegel’s theory: “Today the dialectic is active in every political issue that encourages taking sides. We can see it in environmentalists instigating conflicts against private property owners, in democrats against republicans, in greens against libertarians, in communists against socialists, in neo-cons against traditional conservatives, in community activists against individuals, in pro-choice versus pro-life, in Christians against Muslims, in isolationists versus interventionists, in peace activists against war hawks.”

Once the crisis/conflict is created, the antithesis begins which involves the need to create sides, each side warring with the other. This is actually easier than one might suspect due to a long time false paradigm of Left/Right, Republican/Democrat, Liberal/Conservative, and the “Two-Party System” of politics. In addition, this false paradigm relies on each one of our natural, GOD-given personality and character traits.

The anger, the hatred, the calls for “getting in someone’s face,” rioting and general violence, etc. are all part of the embellishment of a “problem” created for us by someone administering this dialectic. Once this embellishment reaches crisis mode, “synthesis” kicks in with a solution to a problem that was created by those seeking to implement their controlling solutions.

All one must do is to study and understand this dialectic, recognize it as part of our ongoing and angry existence in the country, and then take the action suggested above – “the only way…is to step outside the dialectic.” The only way to step outside the dialectic is to study it, understand it, and recognize it.

Without that, you are stuck…on stupid!

USFWS Stripped of Policing Powers and Guns

Trump Fools People Yet Again

 

Trump Administration stripping grizzlies of ESA protection… Oops… Trump Administration stripping wolves of ESA protection…Ooops… Trump Administration stripping USFWS of their police powers and their guns too… Oooops…Ain’t fake news fun…”The announcement will strip 51 refuge employees of the enforcement role in two stages between Oct. 1 and Jan. 1, according to the memo.” That means it hasn’t happened and will be challenged and over ruled by one of the federal black robed gods… AND if they really do this it only means someone else with police powers will enforce those still on the books federal laws.. A memo is a written message, especially in business and is not law… it’s a challenge that will more than likely be based upon other legal strategies and will end up increasing the USFWS policing powers.. As always something worse will come of this bullshit.. Just watch.. Fck people are gullible… This amounts to challenging their own authority to justify improving the authority by increasing the power of the authority.. Next the fake news will scream that lawlessness in those places has reached epic proportions and they’ll have shot gun shells scattered all over the banks of some pond and people running off with pickups full to the brim of poached ducks and geese… Crisis actors in orange suits with shotguns needed asap…

Trump Administration stripped Fish and Wild Life Service officials of their policing authority including their guns.
https://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/409455-trump-administration-ends-key-law-enforcement-program-at-wildlife

Whatta Joke…It’s not legal it’s political…And serves as fuel for the reactionary response that will both support the removal of the powers and be useful in strengthening those powers…

Trump’s memos are aimed at the public’s gullibility rather than their intelligence..

Help for Helpless Victims of Government Wolves

By James Beers:

A Canadian colleague and I recently received the following email from a concerned friend in the State of Washington. I have eliminated names so that what I say will not cause them any needless difficulty.

I have interjected some comments in the request and the reportage about wolves from Oregon.  The situation, intrigue and government perfidy about wolves could just as easily come from Arizona or Minnesota or North Carolina.

My attempted response to his inquiry follows and is forwarded for the edification of readers on all sides of this contentious and destructive issue…  Jim Beers

———————————————————————————

The Request –

To: Jim Beers <jimbeers7@comcast.net>; YYYYY
Subject: Fwd: Wolves kill guard dog in SW Oregon

 Jim and YYYYY,

I’m going hunting next week about 10 miles from——— Ranch.  Can you please read the article below and advise me as to how I should coach the rancher?  Thanks, XXXXX

Begin forwarded message (with several inserted comments by me, Jim Beers):

 Subject: Wolves kill guard dog in SW Oregon

Date: October 2, 2018

 Wolves kill guard dog in S.W., Oregon

——- had already lost three calves to wolves from the Rogue pack in southwest Oregon back in January.

 On Sept. 24, wolves returned and killed one of the guard dogs —– brought in to protect his herd.

——-, who owns the —– Ranch south of ——-in —– County, said he was awakened early in the morning to the sound of his dog, an adult Tibetan Mastiff, being attacked in a fenced pasture 600 yards from the house.

By the time —— got up, jumped into his boots, grabbed a headlamp and rifle and ran out onto the front porch, he said the wolves were gone, though he did find the dog limping along slowly with blood on its backside. It died later in the day.

Wildlife investigators shaved the dog, finding injuries consistent with wolf bites. —– said the animal’s back end “was like grape jelly.”

The investigation also turned up wolf tracks on the property, which together was enough for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to confirm the (insert your favorite “cutesy” name here.  Jim Beers) pack was responsible for the attack.

“There’s no escaping them,” —-  said. “It seems like they’re getting pretty brazen.”

Problems with the (naming wolves, besides being disgusting is simply propaganda to fill urban kids and soccer Moms heads with.  Jim Beers) pack at —- Ranch began in January, when wolves killed three calves in a span of eight days, prompting  —- and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to ramp up non-lethal deterrents  (“ramping up non-lethal wolf control” is like an urban high school teacher facing fights and gunfire in her classroom saying she will raise her voice if they don’t stop!  Jim Beers) at the property.

As part of the effort, —- was given two Tibetan Mastiffs from a family in—–, Ore., on the other side of the county.

“I do believe they’ve been a deterrent,” —— said. “Any time the wolves have been in the vicinity, they just carry on like crazy.”

 John Stephenson, wolf biologist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Oregon, said the ranch is within the pack’s territory, not far from where the wolves den.

 It is common for wolves to act aggressively toward dogs, Stephenson added, viewing them as competition. (How profound!  Jim Beers)

 “If they have the number on the dogs, they can behave pretty aggressively,” Stephenson said. (Even more profound!  Where do these “experts” learn all this?  Jim Beers)

 The —– pack was started by Oregon’s famous (as in “infamous” if you are trying to make a living where they choose to roam and reveal themselves.  Jim Beers) wandering wolf, OR-7, and his mate in 2014. In 2017, the pack had seven known animals, including two new pups that survived through the end of the year.

 Unlike wolves in Eastern Oregon, the species is still federally listed as endangered west of U.S. highways 395, 78 and 95. (Let that sort of bureaucratic BS sink in!  Jim Beers)

 —- said he is working with the USFWS to once again surround his 276-acre property with electrified fladry — lines of rope with flags that flap in the wind to spook wolves from entering the pasture — and set up additional flashing lights to scare away the predators.  (Fladry was developed and used by Russian wolf controllers to funnel driven wolves through woodlands to passages where shooters lay in wait.  It was and remains effective for that purpose.  Setting it up in a static situation is about as challenging for wolves to circumvent upon watching it is similar to expecting a human baby to avoid it in the living room while Mama cooks supper.  Electrification of real fences or these gossamer threads in the open is merely something wolves quickly learn to avoid like my golden retriever [and he wore a collar] did with his electric fence when a deer ran through the yard.  Dogs and wolves and coyotes are not horses in a pasture that will avoid electrified things.  Wolves, dogs and coyotes treat them as just one more thing to learn to circumvent quickly and with a minimum of inconvenience or pain!  Jim Beers)

 Stephenson said the fladry was an effective tool earlier this year and hopes it will be effective again.  (It couldn’t have been any other reason or reasons for variable predation?  No, No; wolves are supposed to be like Russians retaking Stalingrad in WW II in that they persist 24/7 until they kill all the livestock or die in the attempt?  Remember we pay these do-nothing bureaucrats to bamboozle us and put these ranchers out of business.  Is this a great country or what?  Jim Beers)

 But —– said he is becoming increasingly frustrated, dealing with the anxiety of wolf attacks at the ranch.

 “I need to have some way to protect my livelihood and not have to stress out about this, day in and day out,” he said.

 The U.S. House Natural Resources Committee passed a bill Sept. 26 by a vote of 19-15 that would remove gray wolves from the federal endangered species list in the lower 48 states.  (That will be reversed in court when Trump is gone and in the meanwhile we will turn wolves over to a state wildlife agency corrupted by federal overseers, federal money, and state bureaucrats ridden with the radical philosophies if the environmental/animal rights crowd!  What could go wrong?  Jim Beers)

 The legislation has drawn sharp rebukes from environmental and conservation organizations, with Jason Rylander, senior staff attorney for Defenders of Wildlife, saying science — not politics — should decide when to delist species.  (Whose “science”: mine or yours?  There is no longer any “TRUTH” in the US; only “my” view, “your” view, and who has the most “power!  See the Kavanaugh Senate “Hearings” for confirmation.  Jim Beers)

 “Gray wolf recovery is well underway, but the work is not done,” Rylander said in a statement.  (It will never be done until ranching, farming, hunting, fishing, eating meat, animal ownership and management, private property, the 2nd Amendment and rural prosperity for families and communities are all eliminated.  Jim Beers)

 If Congress really is committed to preserving and protecting wildlife, they would spend their time finding the funding needed to recover species, not attacking the process.” (Sure!  You are already spending billions to destroy Rural America under the guise of a “process” to “recover species”.  Now with the nation over 20 TRILLION in debt you need more?  This entire sham should be cut 90% and sent packing!  Jim Beers)

Oregon currently has at least 124 wolves living across the state, according to the 2017 ODFW annual wolf report.

My, somewhat labored, Response:

On 2018-10-03 10:15 AM, jimbeers7@comcast.net wrote:

XXXXX,

 I honestly don’t know what to say.  If that sounds like I’m a phony or a liar, it is only because what I have seen over the past thirty years does not suggest anything that IS ALLOWED to work.

 Put simply:

Wolves have to eat, and they will eat whatever is readily and easily available.  Where moose, elk and cattle/sheep are available they will feed on them whenever they can.  Livestock are the most vulnerable and available prey; additionally, supplying a large meal of prime meat.

Wolves habituate readily in settled landscapes.  The more people, roads, homes and the detritus of civilization are available, the sooner wolves will habituate and their destructive impacts will multiply along with their populations and densities.

Wolves that are neither shot at, trapped, poisoned nor snared will habituate more quickly as surviving wolves will become even less reluctant to go near human activities, habitations or structures.

Wolves, like dogs and coyotes, get “used to” and “figure out how to” avoid and “get around” FLADRY, ELECTRIC FENCES, HIGH FENCES TO GROUND LEVEL, GUARD DOGS (in addition to eventually killing or outwitting them, the wolves will take advantage of bitches “in heat” and inseminate them), “RANGE RIDERS”, NOISE MAKERS, ETC.

Wolves, despite not thinking ahead like we do, live and learn both from their parents and from what they learn from other pack member’s experience.  The live day in and day out (including nights) doing nothing more than “learning” how to get the most food with the least effort.  There has never been, throughout world history, a way to reduce undesirable wolf impacts other than reducing their numbers year after year to minimize their impacts or killing (“exterminating” or as the Wisconsin DNR says about dogs killed by wolves, “they were ‘depredated’”) as was once done in The Lower 48 States, Europe and the British Isles where the Irish Wolfhound breed was developed exclusively for that purpose when they had the wherewithal and determination to exterminate them in settled landscapes and civilized society.

The wolves you are dealing with are not there for any “scientific” or “environmental” benefit.  They are there because of the political influence of powerful and rich Non-Government Organizations (NGO’s) that use their introduction, protection, spread, and the lies spread in the media and schools to implement a range of hidden agendas from eliminating ranching, farming and rural American life in general to taking control of rural America as other Socialist (I do not apologize for being political about a political matter here) agenda items from gun control to overall societal control are implemented nation-wide.  In this effort they are enabled by unjust federal laws like the ESA; a federal workforce of Socialism-advocates writing the regulations they enforce; and state governments and state wildlife agencies in particular that are no more than federal subcontractors begging for federal money and jobs like the University professors and the NGO’s.

Nothing has been done to change anything other than make it worse since the ESA gave legitimacy to the illegitimate imposition of wolves in the settled landscapes of the Lower 48 States.  They are NOT Endangered, Threatened, or in danger of anything except eventually being subsumed into the domestic dog gene pool somewhere down the road.  All of the “Court Decisions”; “Secretaries’ Orders”; and Congressional promises of “Amendment”, “Reform” and “Change” were and are smoke and mirrors.  Unless the ESA law is changed wherein the USFWS has no power to take private property without compensation, and the federal role vis viz resident non-treaty wildlife is returned to State Jurisdiction as provided in the US Constitution…..  What can I say?

You can’t shoot them.

There is no proven or consistent non-lethal control or protection for livestock out of a barn.

The State government that is supposed to protect you is no more than NGO-advocates disguised in state uniforms working as federal deputies under federal overlords that are salivating to make “examples” of any peasant that dares to try to “obstruct” or “resist” them.  Between their satellite collars, supportive tinker belle courts, and enforcement techniques developed over time from Al Capone to Islamic Terror Operations, one need only remember the recent Bundy Operation in Nevada and the rancher killed in the Oregon snow with his hands in the air to understand what you are up against.

I wish I could give you some help, but other than prayer, I know of no nostrum.  If you see one, let me know and I will do all I can to tell others there is an answer to this positively awful situation.

Stupid Human Tricks, Goats, Gobs of Money and More Stupid Human Tricks

The first stupid human trick began when goats were introduced into an area, now the Olympic National Park, that was not their natural habitat. Now goats are described as a “potential” public safety issue because they’ve developed an affinity for human piss. Because park users, including visitors, hikers, etc. relieve themselves anywhere they so please, evidently this has become a problem.

The next stupid human trick is that we are spending gobs and gobs of money to helicopter the goats out of the park and relocate them (nearly 400) into another part of Washington state. Do you suppose the habitat where they are going can handle an additional 400 goats?

The third stupid human trick is that what goats they can’t catch and transport will, more than likely, be killed BECAUSE THEY ARE A THREAT TO PUBLIC SAFETY! 

Image that? A goat following you around looking to lick at your urine and sweat is a public safety issue that calls for spending millions(?) of dollars to move someplace else and killing the rest. I wonder why this same tactic isn’t used with wolves, grizzlies, mountain lions, and other animals?

There is little need to exaggerate the silliness of the things that men will spend their money on because their behavior is bizarre enough.<<<Read More>>>

Of Course It’s Constitutional, Because We Live in a Free Country Bwahahaha

A Federal judge has ruled that it is NOT unconstitutional for the Gov. of New Jersey to force the destruction of any magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The order gave owners of such devices 180 to comply – December 10, 2018.

More than likely on December 10, 2018, New Jersey will get quite an increase in unlawful citizens.<<<Read More here and the complete court ruling>>>

The Psychological Profile of the Typical U.N.E.P. Pro UNEP and Anti UNEP Clones

Biology, ecology and zoology, it must be remembered is a philosophical method used in ‘someones’ figment of the imagination or creation of the mind that makes up their personal view of the way they see the ecological environment they’re walking about in and its various relationships they temporarily observe which sets in motion their own imaginings. This view resides in their mind and their mind alone, and therefore it is fictitious in nature and can be reflected on paper as an opinion of their imagination ‘mimicking’ the physical world as they might have temporarily experienced it.. Then of course when this data is used to restrict the use of the earth’s resources for obvious political agenda one must consider data manipulation for that political objective.. Thus the blow back against those advocating for this nonsense is justified simply because they have psychologically underestimated those they’ve targeted with these psychological imaginings they support and advocate for… The arguments they’ve made for these bogus science theories goes against reason by appeals to emotion. Worse the majority of these advocates have never observed any of these alleged claims made in the original written down explanations of those imagining they’ve actually observed these various relationships in the ecological environment. It’s all belief based thus faith based arguments in something someone allegedly imagined that not one of those supporting the claims through their advocacy can substantiate with irrefutable evidence.. Dispossessing people of their ‘freedoms’ and lands, for the restrictive practices of pseudo environmental sciences… As well dispossessing people and yourselves out of multiple use privileges on public lands lands for the same restrictive practices of pseudo environmental scientific nonsense.. Is insanity. There is your psychological profile of your own idiocy dear U.N.E.P. clones… A continuation of your psychological analysis which strangely enough matches your Anti UNEP opponents who also never read the UNEP tome, thus both sides psyches would go something like this; Neurotic. Over reactionary.. Paranoid.. Cowardly, Tyrannical.. Brainwashed. Insane.. very limited knowledge, politically motivated by appeals to emotional nonsense.. At varying degrees fitting to the evaluation of the ambulatory psychopath.. Impossible to have a rational reasoned discussion with.. See anyone from the WLNs and the SWW groups.. Control freaks. Fascists. Narcissistic. Crazy.. Zombies, living in darkness thinking it is enlightenment..Advocates for a centralized system of political dominance.  All of these people are identical.. biased bigoted and dishonest.

Echinococcus in wild canids in Québec (Canada) and Maine (USA)

Abstract

Zoonotic Echinococcus spp. cestodes (E. canadensis and E. multilocularis) infect domestic animals, wildlife, and people in regions of Canada and the USA. We recovered and quantified Echinococcus spp. cestodes from 22 of 307 intestinal tracts of wild canids (23 wolves, 100 coyotes, 184 red and arctic foxes) in the state of Maine and the province of Québec. We identified the species and genotypes of three Echinococcus spp. cestodes per infected animal by sequencing mitochondrial DNA at two loci. We further confirmed the absence of E. multilocularis by extracting DNA from pools of all cestodes from each animal and running a duplex PCR capable of distinguishing the two species. We detected E. canadensis (G8 and G10), but not E. multilocularis, which is emerging as an important human and animal health concern in adjacent regions. Prevalence and median intensity of E. canadensis was higher in wolves (35%, 460) than coyotes (14%, 358). This parasite has historically been absent in Atlantic regions of North America, where suitable intermediate hosts, but not wolves, are present. Our study suggests that coyotes are serving as sylvatic definitive hosts for E. canadensis in Atlantic regions, and this may facilitate eastward range expansion of E. canadensis in the USA and Canada. As well, compared to wolves, coyotes are more likely to contaminate urban green spaces and peri-urban environments with zoonotic parasites.<<<Read More>>>

You Must Believe Me…

It would seem that the majority of people prefer to be lied to. Why is that?

Most all of us read. As a matter of fact, one source that I looked at said 73% of people read books regularly. It seems that a majority prefer to read fiction vs. nonfiction. In other words, we prefer to be lied to rather than told the truth? Maybe. Greater entertainment value?

Is it because we want to believe what we are being told, whether verbally or in print? It would appear that way. In reality, we have absolutely no reason to believe anything told or written by any person and yet we still do. I have always marveled at listening to people discuss a movie or a fiction book they have read and are relating it as though it really happened – that it was the truth.

Have you ever known or read about (snicker) famous fakers, con men, hoaxers, forgers? The world is full of them. Some are “professional” – whatever exactly that means. We are all fakers, con artists, hoaxers, and forgers of some kind. Be honest. We lie. We believe that under most conditions, the means to an end can be justified even if it is mired in dishonesty.

One of the world’s greater “professional” hoaxers might have been a man by the name of Clifford Irving. Irving was notably an author and investigative journalist known best for his supposed “autobiography” of Howard Hughes – as told by Howard Hughes. It could never be proven or disproven that he even knew Hughes say nothing about writing his autobiography from interviews with the man.

But people lined up to buy his work. Many believed it. Many wanted to believe it. He lied. Or did he? How do we know? Does it matter?

Irving became friends with a Hungarian man named “Elmyr.” Elmyr was one of the worlds great art forgers…we think because we have been told. But it is impossible to prove anything he allegedly did or didn’t do.

The preservation of this fakery is done by the faker himself. Irving and Elmyr both were once asked if they would “come clean” about their forgeries. They said they would and sat down to discuss the “truth” about the events, only to discover at some point that the interviews were fake and full of lies – just more hoaxes. Regardless of the number of times either Irving or Elmyr was asked to come clean, they said they would but it would end in what could only be seen as continued lies and hoaxes.

If we spend the majority of our time when we read, reading fiction books, does this muddy our ability to determine truth from fiction? Do we even care? We want to believe…in something. Are there better things to be found in fiction reading than in reality?

How important is it that the faker, hoaxer, liar, fraud convinces you they are telling the truth? There are millions of dollars to be made from this, even in areas typically accepted by people as legitimate platforms of media, i.e. books, newspapers, television, social media, movies, music, etc. Because of this simple fact, it only makes sense that the perpetrators of hoaxes, lies, fake news, fraud ought to be trained professionals – actors? Why not? The things we do for money.

Actors are nothing more than trained professional liars. They are failures if they are not. Their job as an actor is to convince you they are real and what they do and say can be taken as authentic. If this is so convincing on the movie screen, why isn’t this same act carried out on television “news” programs, or anywhere else, say in Congress, the White House, IRS, FBI, NSA, CIA, etc.? There is always a lot at stake – often times more than we can imagine.

Remember the H.G. Wells movie “War of the Worlds?” What made the movie successful is that people believed and wanted to believe it was really happening. It took an awful lot to convince these people it was a hoax. Millions were made and within the event, it was discovered what power existed in this format of lying to convince people of things for sinister reasons.

If you will recall the formation to the Wellington House, a group of professionals (some liars/writers of fiction) whose purpose was to create propaganda (lies) in order to manipulate public opinion in support of World War I. This, in more fine-tuned fashion, continues today.

Nobody wants to be made a fool of and because of that, it becomes that much more difficult to convince people they are being lied to, conned, misled, etc. That’s what makes lying so wonderful to those seeking the advantage in dishonest ways.

We know that newspapers, magazines, television, movies, social media, etc. all contain lies. What we don’t know is how much and just what are the lies and what are truths. How do we determine? Can we? Maybe it is best to stop using these resources for information. But we won’t. It’s an addiction.

When we are told that someone or some media source was caught lying, how do we know that the supposed lie was, in fact, a lie? How do we know that the accusers aren’t lying? We don’t. How do we know that this isn’t just a conspiracy plotted between the accused liar and the accuser? We don’t. However, if one lie is what we want to hear, we readily accept that as truth. We must believe in one side or the other, one actor over the other, one author over the other…right?

If we can wrap our fingers around the notion that what is at stake is of such a high value, monetarily and politically, or even protect clandestine operations and the sinister things they do, then can we begin to understand that these same operators will go to whatever lengths necessary to accomplish what is “life or death” to them?

Why then, do we or should we believe what we are being fed? There is no reason to. Are any of the things we are seeing on television real? If not, which ones are acted out, lies, i.e. “fake?”

We are supposed to believe that a woman from 30-some years ago in a Supreme Court nominee’s past attacked her…or something. What is at stake here? You would think the end of the world is the outcome the way people are acting and reacting. Therefore, at what lengths will people go to stop this nomination or at what lengths will they go to confirm this nomination? Would they go so far as to bring in trained actors, make them up and give them a script? Why not? We love the entertainment of lies. We feed off lies. We want very much to believe those lies.

Still not convinced? For those probably least convinced, they may be the consumers of fiction books and movies. Look at what computers can do on the movie screen. Look at what makeup is capable of these days. The technology exists that if someone wanted to make another person up to look like Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi, Brett Kavanaugh, Christine Ford, or anybody they so choose, they could. We would not know the difference.

After all, what is at stake? How important is it for certain things to take place? How important is it to the government, to Big Corporations, to banks, to the Vatican to get what they want?

Do we still have the capability of decerning fact from fiction? Do we just adore our fiction so much, i.e. being lied to, that in our programmed confusion we can’t and don’t want to know reality? We have all been taught that “you are what you eat.” If your life is drowning in fiction, then your life is drowning in fiction.

The lives or Clifford Irving and Elmyr, along with others, was made into a movie – “F is for Faker,” hosted and narrated by Orson Welles. I’ll leave you with what he said at the end of the movie: “I did promise that for one hour, I’d tell you only the truth. That hour, ladies and gentlemen, is over. For the past seventeen minutes, I’ve been lying my head off.”

Now what?
