The Age of Information was so effective in revealing the flaws of interventionism, the State had to create a new Age of Obscurantism. Never has it been so important in the history of America for serious people to step forward and defend truth and reality. Intellectuals will tell you that truth is relative and perception is reality, and that's precisely why Americans are starving for the honest representatives.
Government is lying to the American people in such blatant fashion, it's reminiscent of the horror stories we read about the USSR and Mao's China. Obama, Reid and Pelosi rammed through a healthcare takeover that's threatening to destroy healthcare in America as we've known it, and how do they respond? Reid calls all those liars who spoke out about the damage caused by ACA -- he said all the stories are made up. Pelosi said they had to pass the bill before we could know what's in it. Obama met with a comedian in a mock interview and made light of the law that's destroying healthcare coverage for millions of people. Obama is telling jokes hoping to fool young people while the reality is that to make ACA work young people will have to overpay for insurance they don't want or need, and they'll be forced by government one way or another to pay for it. Young people are in for a rude awakening when the truth is discovered and reality revealed.
Government's spying on us and one another. The NSA, the CIA, and all intelligence agenices are out of control, yet those in charge lie and mislead. Edward Snowden revealed the extent to which NSA has violated the 4th Amendment, yet the political realm mostly chooses to damn Snowden as a traitor. The State has to destroy truth-tellers, so they attack Snowden and whistleblowers in Benghazi. They tell stories about video makers to hide the reality of a terrorist attack -- the State protectors lie and deceive and it's only a matter of time before their interventions send us into complete collapse.
Republican moderates speak of a Big Tent and soft rhetoric and compromise when what we need is courage and fiery truth-telling. This is no time for common political strategy and two-party cooperation in a statist system that props up the status quo. We need revolutionaries. We need serious thinkers to articulate the grand ideas of liberty and justice. This is no time for political obscurantism -- this is time for honesty, courage and radical change.
