THE UGLY TRUTH, FRESH DAILY
Don’t get me wrong: I still miss Billmon, but I’ll be damned if Arthur Silber doesn’t oversupply my weekly quota of analysis that makes my fucking head explode. Silber has an understanding of the human condition that, applied to the current status of our dying republic, should be read and taken seriously by everyone in our federal government. Alas, it will not be.
With one sentence, though, Silber explains the putrid rot that is our system of corporate ‘news’ reporting. He explains the reflexive mendacity of our more successful and prominent politicians. He explains why we the people continue to pour money and votes into the subjects of both previous sentences.
When the truth reveals you to be a contemptible, unprincipled coward, lies become your friends.
You should read the post containing this quote here. You should also continue to read Arthur Silber’s blog, and you should consider offering some financial support. I shall do all three things.
