Attorney General of the US perjures himself

Mar. 3, 2017 7:59 am

The sentence that forms the title to this entry, "Attorney General of the US perjures himself," is a consequence of the poison of theocracy now coursing through the veins of America and rapidly killing her. Utterly immoral and unethical men believe they are "justified" by some "higher" law and thus show no respect for any law, including the allegedly higher law. And shall such a man adjudicate over perjury in other men?

The day before the sickening news broke, I posted a poem, "Beautiful Words: MEASURE," on which I had worked every day for weeks and weeks and weeks. The poem attempts to expose doublespeak as a violation of all measure, itself understood in the West from the West's very beginnings as a monstrous crime, hubris. The next day, I awake to nauseating proof of the argument.

When will we come to our senses? TrumPutin and their sub-monsters intend the destruction of America. Orwell is right:

Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.

We must find an antidote to doublespeak and theocracy. Fortunately, we have one, if we will but take it, "government of the people, by the people, for the people."

Hi Allen!

What is it that you mean by the use of the word "immoral?" And "unethical?" Both words logically imply objective and universal standards... So what is moral? What is ethical?

Another question which your missive begs is: "Why don't you address real theocracies e.g., those of a number of Muslim countries? And specifically for example: Saudi Arabia that murder homosexuals?" Allen, it is also the case that those theocracies - by law - mandate that women that have been raped are to be put to death (stoned? drowned? perhaps some other method?); unless 4 Muslim men attest that the women was raped. What do you have to say about that? Do you consider such Muslim's - as a Religion of Peace - as exemplifying "doublespeak?" Why no mention of such regular occurrences in real theocracies? And Allen, are you guilty of the doublespeak of which you report Orwell wrote? Why don't you address those murders? And 59 + million human beings have murdered in the United States since 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision; have you mentioned those murders, or is that an instance of "doublespeak?" Is the "pro-choice" label, doublespeak?

Another question Allen: "What is presupposed in all measure/s?"

Well I have many more related questions, but those will do for now...

Cordially,

Thomas J. Donegan

 

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
