Denial of master plan?  Whose plan?  Isn't conspiracy theory on R & L how the West operates today?

History as it happened, not the Hollywood version, but one of the few people in 1934 who understood what was going on ...

I disagree with his assessment that there are several "truths", that's something out of Jordan B. Peterson's playbook. There are facts and opinions. If you base something on opinion, which I think he's conflating his version of "truths" with, then you're of course gonna get a wrong picture of reality.


He basically beating around the bush about how we view the world, and what we can discern from that view. The way I understand it, objective truths is seeing the world from a detached, non-subjective way, that different people will come to the same conclusions about the same objective truths; be it a measurement, a result, or other piece of fact.


I'm wary of people trying to distort or otherwise give some "commentary" on how facts can be viewed in several ways. Slavoj Ε½iΕΎek is one of them.

There is one truth, the Hillary Truth!!  CNN is lying and Acosta is lying, about Acosta  touching the aide, when it is clearly shown on video.    Ir was also reported by eye witnesses.  So what is the truth of that?  We must deny all eye witnesses, and accuse all video of being doctored?

Just not like Chicken Run ... you have to be on a British Farm and have delusions of WW II.

I work harder and smarter ;-))

Yes, would like to see the British Museum.  One of the one time posters here, his daughter got a job at the British Museum.  Have to say that is one of the few situations that make me a little jealous.

Ooo nice. Grand museums of that size and capasity... and I can only give two days for it. :( They are all free in London though. May be I'll rush in if I find some time. I'm also looking forward to Natural History and Science Museums. A&V, Tate. Too many places in London. And these are just the classics. I didn't even bother to buy a city pass. My feet will swell and ache for a week after I got back.
