  1. Interesting. The problem here and now is that the entire information industry seems to have been infected with an agenda of some sort. Most do not rise to the level of Cleon, but the general, overall tone of many web sites and print media has a decided slant, and this slant, if you are not well versed in the subject, can be hard to detect. There is something wrong with our society. I am not quite sure what it is, but the pervasiveness of bullshit is just one symptom, and the election of Trump is a reaction to that symptom. What we need is a new sun god, along the lines of Amenhotep, or FDR, though I suspect FDR has achieved his near mythological status by having a war with the devil himself and defeating him.

    • So much on every side seems to be advocacy. People select those facts that support their goal and present them in the most compelling way. Scientists, journalists, clergy – they’re acting like trial lawyers, and are indifferent to the truth of what they say, as long as what they say will advance their cause.
