Who do you think that you are?
October 27, 2012
There are no more facts. Everything is opinion. And opinion is the folly of all democracies. Because everyone has a right to one. And even in the face of facts, opinion wins out. Advertising does this. Always the emphasis on the ‘me’. News channels (except for FOX) with their emphasis on ‘fairness’ do this. (FOX has managed to avoid ‘fairness’ and ‘facts’.) Beware of political figures who temper their judgements based on public opinion. Any society that builds policy based on opinion is headed for disaster.
And now if you would turn your attention to page 121 of the prayer book we will sing Instant Karma.
