Filter here… filter there but no one wants to
admit what they see is like the blind men…
describing what an elephant really is, as all
six run into something different by it when
they tell their stories, completely missing
the bigger picture of the elephant and then…
make the absurd claim to know the truth!

 

When the special little people in any of the
political circle jerks1️⃣ are exposed to the light
of social media… their tight little grips on
their beliefs are pressed clearly in our sight,
and what they think is now in the ‘Public
Domain’ but empowers both left and right…
make the absurd claim to know the truth!

 

Snippets of reality, as through social media,
are to brief to grant us all the bigger view,
they are prisms of thought… a snapshot
of a scenario, a fractal to offer us all by clue
but the smaller truth does not encompass
the picture we see, left us to call it half true…
make the absurd claim to know the truth!

 

1… yes, the use of this ’term’ brings with it (in the US) a negative connotation but please know it was used due to a reference and comment [in the Guardian] and might be more commonly used there, in the UK- thus desensitized or conditioned; inured.

 

Can there be nothing more to this than spin or is it spun out of control- oriented to (truly) complete control over what we think about any given subject? Example… ‘the Sweden tweets’ come to bear the full panoply of circumstance, denial and reality vs. expectation. Did you know there are around 50 ‘no-go zones’ in Sweden, areas the police do not even want to enter? See the article here. Then we see news about the US news blackout covering these issues (after the fact), like this one. Now comes ’the tweet heard ‘round the world’ and what happened after. POTUS Trump’s tweet, found here. The cynical reaction by many and Sweden too is here. What came about as a culmination from all this was not entirely to be unexpected, unless you might be referring to: Sweden itself, denial of the peace loving masses (so they claim) or the positions people have placed themselves in so compliantly- pointing to the damage of: lies, half truths, bias and spin when it comes to news (or what can have a direct and lasting impact on our very lives) and what we are told about it. When you step back from any issue you will face, even this one, your perspective will change, wouldn’t you agree?

I’d like to know what the criminologists are smoking, Carl Bildt?
