Romney’s campaign ran strong until the end, when voters pushed him over the edge and into a landslide win that shocked the Obama team and raised cheers that could be heard around the world.

Okay, so it’s not true.  I just thought I’d see how it feels to throw something out and pretend I was reporting on facts, even though it really isn’t a fact and ought to be obviously so before anyone begins reading.  Of course, those who are doing that type of “journalism – not” on a frequent basis, may think their opinions are facts, because they are living in a delusional pit of illusions, as they listen to the fibber snitches from the political and governmental voice of their ideological choice.

Do these “journalists – not” think that whatever they say will suddenly become reality once they put it into words and others read it?  (Magic?)

Do these “journalists – not” think that whatever they say will suddenly be believed by the readers and then, because it is believed, become true?  (Self-prophecy?)

Do these “journalists – not” believe their own propaganda because the talking points say the non-facts are actually the facts?  (Dumbed Down Puppets?)

Whatever it is that the “journalists – not” think, or don’t think, reading their opinions and hopes written as fact is an insult to the reader and to every TRUE JOURNALIST that ever put pen to paper (fingers to keyboard) with integrity and honesty in spite of personal opinion or wishes.  It is an insult.  It is a game.  It is pure deception.

The game of “let’s pretend” belongs in the realm of childhood, not in adulthood where there is true danger in not facing reality and instead dealing in fantasy and wishful thinking.  Not everyone plays harmless games.  Some play for keeps.

There is no ideal world.  There is no such thing as absolute, except for death.  No such thing as absolute tolerance or equality.  There will always be those who are not tolerated by the “tolerant.” There will always be those who rose to power that then do not see others as their equal.  Now that they are in power, they will always be more equal than others.  They will always be the intellectual superior that knows better for all people, while no one knows better for they.  They will be the future “1984” characters that lived in the fantasy world based upon the “journalists-not” tales of facts that weren’t really facts and so-called non-facts that really were facts.  It will be a world where fiction “is” and no one will ever be sure what is truth and what is not.

    Back in the 70s our culture turned a corner, leaving the authority of absolute truth and entering the permissiveness of relativism. As a society, we became less concerned with what is ‘true’, and more concerned with what is ‘true for me’. “You see what you want to see and hear what you want to hear.” While pluralism allowed for a variety of positive expressions under one banner (“E Pluribus Unum”), diversity destroyed the authority of our unity. Now all we like sheep have gone astray — each to his own way. Every group has its own ‘truths’, expressed as political agendas. And the ‘truth’ of the government-media oligarchy is no more far-fetched than your example of a Romney victory.

      I’d put that turn more in the 60’s; the window into moral and intellectual anarchy. I was once one of those who thought the cultural revolution was kind of “hip” and harmless, silly, actually, until I read Judge Robert Bork’s Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline, a malaise-shattering wake up call to what we’re really up against. The 70’s were just an outworking of the barbarian overwhelming that this country experienced in the 60’s. Today’s leaders are the spawn of that untameable creature.

        Yep. In the 60s we were in the turn. The 70s completed the turn. The course had been changed, and we were moving in a new direction.

          Thank you! Both of you explained the history of how we got from there to here far better than I could have. It is amazing how seemingly harmless activity and beliefs can mushroom into a nightmare that threatens our very existence. It certainly would be nice if we had a group movement turning our world back towards God, sanity and “actual” truth. I believe it’s possible though I don’t know that it will happen.

            “a group movement turning our world back towards God”

            I’ve never heard of a better description for the Great Commission! And what better reason is there for churches to be united in Christ?
