William Blum is 84 and I'm only 77. So there's time.
There are so very few truly clear-eyed and logical people in this world -- I strive daily to be one myself -- no thanks to the corporate news media and "leaders" who decide for us what is what, whether it's what or not. Without incisive analysts like Blum we'd all be stumbling around in the dark.
I'm not suggesting, of course, that I agree with absolutely everything Blum says; I'm just saying he hits a lot of nails on the head.
Speaking of logic: allow me to acknowledge that any kind of criticism or approbation begins in the eye of the beholder. For example: my former husband -- who seemingly modelled his life on Time Magazine's pronouncements -- called me "irrational" when I failed to agree with him; yet, in a later, semi-successful relationship, I was labelled, "too logical."
And my sister once told me: "Your problem is you have too many brains". Also that I "talk too much". More recently, a woman in a seniors centre group burst out at me, "You're STUPID!" when I expressed a contrary opinion.
It's true; the reason I blog is because I'm always trying to get to the truth of things, and my musings tend to come out of my mouth. Since I'm currently surrounded by small-town, church-goin',TV-lovin', authority-respecting folks who don't want to hear it, I'm back to writing it instead.
It was only through activism in Ottawa and on the Internet that I came across similar personalities (Ann of Green Gable's "kindred spirits") -- people whose conclusions more closely resembled my own -- but even some of those ended up boggling me somewhat because of their silence throughout the Obama years.
It seems that activist "leftist" types can get caught in their own well-meaning biases: Obama Black - good; Clinton Female - good. Ergo, "See No Evil".
But William Blum is not so conflicted. Nor am I, mostly. I see what's happening, and discover who's helping to make it happen, and before I can censor myself, out pops: "Whut the ...????"
Anyway, I'm taking a week off partly to soothe my mind, and partly to visit some lovely, tolerant friends in a bigger town, and will return to the keyboard by next Sunday, Feb. 18, at the latest.
In the meantime, as a Valentine gift to anyone who bothers to read my site, I'm posting links to two articles by Blum that spoke loud-and-clear to me (there are others as well, of course).
An older one entitled: "Come Out of the White House With Your Hands Up" is just brilliant.
And one that is quite recent: “'Fake news' is fake news".
You just know there's going to be a "but" immediately following.
(Suddenly I'm reminded of Carl Sagan - YouTube ;-)
SEE YOU NEXT SUNDAY.
