I think the single most disturbing thing to me recently is the huge influx of doublethink and hypocrisy here on these boards. I may not have been
registered long and I haven't lurked for that long before that, but I don't recall the amount of pure irrationality that I've been seeing around
the past month.
They're bad qualities and they are becoming increasingly prevalent here. And if we here choose to deny ignorance, part of denying ignorance is
denying hypocrisy. People say one thing in one thread and go around saying the other in another thread.
Considering the revelations of Israeli internet propaganda efforts and efforts by the US government to disrupt sites like this, people who are truly
seeking the truth need to not only keep a keen mind but to expose those who aren't here for the right reasons.
The shills, the propagandists, the hypocrites, the spin artists; if you are a truth seeker, if you see someone like above you should call them out on
it and let it be known their games won't be allowed here. I'm not suggesting censorship; by all means, let them spew their filth. But after you
clean it up you sure as hell should chastise them. Let it be known that people should be wary of these individuals and possibly even blackball them
from the community through the ignore feature.
But I also want to echo what Ian McLean has said. People get too caught up in the moment and even I have on the rare occasion. The truth is
self-evident though. In the end, it requires no defense. Truth is not an aggressor that destroys any attempt by those who don't accept it. The truth
needs no army, only an army that knows what is the truth. It's a war of worldview, a battle of paradigm in a persons mind. They can fight the truth,
deny the truth, cover it up, smear it, lock it in a chest and hide it away deep in the keep. In the end, the truth is revealed, people see it, and
people accept it. It's a battle of attrition that pits a force that is infinite versus a force that is finite. The truth is all that is, the farce
lives on only when there is fuel for the farce.
"Truth will first be ridiculed, then violently opposed, and finally accepted as self-evident" A. Schopenhauer 1788-1860
