We Do Not Live in “Post Truth” World, We Live in a World of Lies and We Always Have

We’re conditioned to lies, as a society. We accept ads and even follow up on some of their lying premises and promises. We vote for blatantly lying, cheating, thieving, grafting, politicians. We continue to fill churches and mosques run by liars and thieves on behalf of non-existent deities and even when we don’t believe in such, we defend the rights of these liars to spew their right-winged bile across the nation and the world. And we continue to use the products of life-destroying corporations such as Monsanto; we continue to allow Big Pharma and a for-profit only medical system to pump our children full of deadly vaccines and drugs. That is the result of brainwashing, and that is why we prefer fake news to the truth because the truth makes us look and feel bad, and in our fast disappearing world of entitlement, to feel bad is bad, never a call to change.

    I can’t agree with your point about vaccination. The ‘harm’ they are reputed to cause is the lie. And, even were it to be true, would still outweigh the good. That said, I love Robert Fisk’s writing and will read the original article which I thank you for sharing. Happy 2017.
