One time, I grounded my son and made him read Plato’s Allegory of the Cave in The Republic.
Parenting: Phenomenal Cosmic Power!
My own reaction to Wikileaks’ revelations reminded me of taking exception to Plato’s solution for the Cave.
My view: blow the mother-fucking roof off the cave and let the sunshine in!!!
Assange has done the world a favor (The Atlantic). Yeah, the puppeteers are foaming at the mouth and trying to gin up mobs to act against their own interests.
Puppet shows aren’t much fun without an audience. It’s true…unless you’re watching the show from the hole at the top of the cave.
But we are not the pussies Jack Nicholson assumes we are in A Few Good Men.
We can handle the truth. Move forward. Try to be better.
The way the lip-flapping sissy fucktards on TV talk, we have to sacrifice the First Amendment for Security…
…because we are mindless pussies.
Nobody has stepped forward and proved Assange a liar. Can we say as much about politicians? Knowing is always better than not knowing.
But this is awesome…Ron Paul says of Julian Assange…”In a society where truth becomes treason, then we’re in big trouble.”
Update: Senator Mitch McConnell confesses he’s a big ol’ pussy. Terrorism is by definition a calculated effort by a small group to inspire fear. And McConnell admits Assange has made him piss his suit.
