scary stuff

A great many blogs out there seem to come out of dark places where spiders like to hide and where gibbering in the dark corners of a mind is thinking.

I do a lot of gibbering as you can tell.

I like what I see BTW. Thanks for stepping up to the plate.

A lot of these blogs aren't even thinking; they seem to be just a bunch of white noise coming out of the speakers with the tuner set off a station. I haven't run into too many philosophers here, in any language. Sad but true as a commentary on the minds of today's society that are evolved enough to put their thoughts onto a computer, only to discover there's nothing to type.

Thank you both for coming in. I think that we are teaching people to look at things which show you what you should see without asking you to think about it. May be the biggest problem with Michael Moore. Although I haven't seen the movie, I've heard about it (a lot) and I think I agree. But people should have come to those conclusions some time ago by reading and thinking.

You know - you've come up with probably the first intellectually valid criticism of Fahrenheit 9/11...

I saw the movie and enjoyed it and found it to be valuable. (My review can be found here):

What you are saying is correct, however, and I never thought of the movie in that context.

The movie is an assembly of predigested information - pure wheat from chaff. As a smug, bi-coastal liberal elitist, I naturally had drawn the same conclusions from my own reading and observations of the world around me... If I were someone who was not focused on reading, analysis and world peace (naturally), Fahrenheit 9/11 would have been as predigested and spoonfed as Rush Limbaugh is to his NASCAR-watching zombies.
