I’m going through a period where I can barely look at the news, and when I do I feel nothing but dismay. I feel that as a culture we’re heading for the abyss. Nobody hears anyone else. We’re all locked into our positions. I have always said to myself that I would be perfectly happy to see an open public debate about what is really true and then live by the results—so long as everything is looked at honestly, without compromise or coercion. But this nation is not willing to do that. Everybody has an axe to grind, a pet philosophy to protect regardless of truth. We had an incredibly tough warning two years ago, and what happened then has already been distorted and forgotten. This is what greed does to the mind. It makes you deaf and blind. And so we continue on our journey to disaster.
I’ll be back soon with something less dreary. I’m focused on the book right now.
