The Ignoble Lie
For those with the time, and the inclination, to listen to a potted history of, well, of all sorts really, I recommend this video.
I have never listened to Alan Watt speak before tonight. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute. You will hear some of the stuff I write about, and indeed, some of the stuff you tell me about.
If you prefer to read, rather than watch and listen, there is a transcript here.
It is long, at 90 minutes but it beats the crap out of Strictly Come Get Me Out Of Here Street. And you will know why as you listen to Alan explain how cleverly they bamboozle us all. And why we let them fool us.
And, obscenely, why we pay them to treat us like the fuckwits we are.
There is a lot of food for thought in here and as always, I welcome your thoughts.
This video will not change your life.
But it may just cause your thinking to alter a tad.
I hope so.
I really fucking hope so.
