Problems At The Justice Department And FBI Are Serious

Problems At The White House Have Never Been -- Nor Will They Ever Be -- As Serious As They Are Under Trump | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Alan: It's fine to address problems with the FBI and DOJ but when we risk loss of perspective by ideological diversionism, then we have a problem almost as serious as Trump's attempt to denature Truth itself.

Problems At The Justice Department And FBI Are Serious

"There Are Two Ways Of Lying..." Denis De Rougemont And Donald Trump

There are two ways of lying, as there are two ways of deceiving customers. If the scale registers 15 ounces, you can say: "It's a pound." Your lie will remain relative to an invariable measure of the true. If customers check it, they can see that they are being robbed, and you know by how much you are robbing them: a truth remains as a judge between you. But if the demon induces you to tamper with the scale itself, it is the criterion of the true which is denatured, there is no longer any possible control. And little by little you will forget that you are cheating.    

Alan: At the end of the day, it's "all" about truth contextualized by perspective and proportion, and Trump is determined to de-rail all three.
