Because we have incontrovertible evidence that we are being lied to in almost every area, by almost everyone, it’s hard to know what is true. This has created fertile ground for some pretty outrageous speculation.
Of course, we live in an outrageous age, so there is merit to be found in speculating outrageously.
But, it doesn’t help to spend too much time standing at the brink of hysteria. Nor does it help to spend time cooking up irrational theories.
Reality is bad enough, thankyouverymuch.
And, this Ebola thing is very much a case-in-point. It is an absolute obscenity, and we would do well to pay attention to what is real.
