Not pessimistic, realistic.
Thank you - this is the point - that the lie is often in the eye of the beholder. "He`s a liar!" is not a political argument.
Nothing profound here. The Network movie is a good one for analogies...and sorry about the lame entertainment value (but that`s why it`s in the News&Politics category.
What we need is a loyal leader that can misguide us towards the truth. Or dumb-fire us, seeing as we`re a mis-guided country. Dumb-firing with accuracy seems like a wiser, yet riskier move.
Like me, it would have to be an intelligent, social-moron, that knows, by the book, how people behave, and forsees thier next behaviors, with only themselves to guide, without assistance.
Like ballistics, that`s practically dumb-firing. Like I said, and much like ballistics, it`s extremely risky to pull off; but if you are a dead-eye with it, well then, that`s freaking amazing.
Politicians suck, they only think for themselves. Leadership is about sacrifice. Nothing says politics like a good coward.
"STOP PREACHING"STOP LISTENING! really, if you ont want to hear something, the solution most of the time is to simply not listen. dont go to a church and protest that you dont like what they`re saying. dont go anywhere where somebody "preaches" unless youre ready to grow up and accept the fact that they`re going to acctually "preach".
Mani-Jac, it seems you`ve missed the point as well. The video or its description didn`t offer proof that politicians lie; it`s about how people are convinced that politicians lie, and therefore they don`t believe what politicians say when campaigning.
Yes, I missed the point, but I think it`d be cool to be a politician, so no comment.
