My complaint about Long John Silvers
I realize that everyone is entitled to his opinion, and I respect this. I also hope that you will all respect mine as you read this letter. Let's
review the errors in Long John Silvers's statements in order. First, Long John Silvers can't see the forest for the trees. Should we blindly trust
such exploitative crybabies?
For your edification, I should sincerely point out that Long John Silvers recently claimed that the media should "create" news rather than report
it. I would have found this comment shocking had I not heard similar garbage from it a hundred times before. It has been said that I find Long John
Silvers's double standards rather minatory. That makes sense to me. I believe it's true. But it really implies that Long John Silvers loves getting
up in front of people and telling them that anyone who dares to eschew execrable obscurantism can expect to suffer hair loss and tooth decay as a
result. It then boasts about how it'll overthrow all concepts of beauty and sublimity, of the noble and the good, and instead drag people down into
the sphere of its own base nature quicker than you can double-check the spelling of "theoanthropomorphism". It's all part of the media spectacle
that is Long John Silvers. Of course, it soaks it up and wallows in it like a pig in mud. Speaking of pigs and mud, Long John Silvers parrots whatever
ideas are fashionable at the moment. When the fashions change, its ideas will change instantly, like a weathercock. I could be wrong about any or all
of this, but at the moment, the above fits what I know of history, people, and current conditions. If anyone sees anything wrong or has some new facts
or theories on this, I'd love to hear about them.
