One more week to go in this dystopian election season. We’re dealing with a Republican party with no plans to fix any of the problems plaguing our world today. All they do is stoke fear, blame Democrats and lie. About everything. So I jumped when I saw that a new book was out called How to Win the War on Truth: An Illustrated Guide to How Mistruths Are Sold, Why They Stick, and How to Reclaim Reality.
Its author Samuel C. Spitale joins us today, hopefully with some advice we can put into play over the next six days.
I’m pondering when I’ll leave Twitter as the self-proclaimed “chief Twit” exhibits the worst of the behavior he claims he wants to prevent. It’s the Opposite World of which I speak all the time and it’s despicable. So I wrote a song about it… (tweaked and performed by Lauren Mayer!)
I’m dealing with the depths to which this nation has sunk thanks to the ugliness of one man who made it ok for people to show their ugliest qualities, to show their bigotry, racism and ignorance loudly and, inconceivably, proudly. And now I’m watching the families whose loved ones were murdered by the mass murderer in Parkland Florida (about 10 minutes from where I’m sitting) as they make their final statements to the killer before he’s locked away for the rest of his life. I’m worried about our future. I don’t think we have one. And that’s where I am today…. Gee, let’s put on a show!
