THE Question: What are we going to do about it?
I went home for the holidays to visit my Mom and stepfather. I went out for a ride with my stepfather and I had him take notice of the cameras at the intersections with stoplights that are recently installed. He had not noticed them, but when I pointed them out-he waived at them while I sent them "you're number 1" greetings.
I came across this (pretty much) all-encompassing synopsis of the current state of affairs in the USA. I think anyone who lives here will agree. The question is: What are WE going to do about it?
Oh, and did ya'll know I love Einstein? (rhetorical question)
Title- Albert Einstein: “A Foolish Faith In Authority Is The Worst Enemy Of The Truth”
Excerpt- Don’t Be Foolish
Albert Einstein said:
A foolish faith in authority is the worst enemy of the truth.
Indeed, scientists have shown that people will go to absurd lengths - and engage in mental gymnastics – in order to cling to their belief in what those in authority have said.
Part of the reason so many are so vulnerable to naive belief in authority is that we evolved in small tribes … and we assume that the super-elites are just like us.
In reality, there are millions of psychopaths in the world … and they are largely running D.C. and on Wall Street.
These people have no hesitation in lying to promote their goals.
The Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs told Morley Safer of 60 Minutes and CBS News:
Look, if you think any American official is going to tell you the truth, then you’re stupid. Did you hear that? — stupid.
And studies show that the super-rich lie, cheat and steal more than the rest of us
