…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

My sporadic, mini TV watching sometimes produces howlers. For example, seeing a knot of wipers pursuing some lizard, I assumed that it is a simile of the main stream media treatment of Donald Trump. Well, yes and no. Yes, but unintentionally.


For real, it is intended as an advertisement for that darling of BBC, politically correct David Attenborough, who floods TV stations worldwide with his cut and paste feel-good programmes.

Far more amusing presenter of nature programmes David Bellamy – dared to say something to the effect that the climate change is not the industrial age phenomena – and before you can say Al Gore our God he became persona non grata for the British Broadcasting Commissariat and his programmes disappeared from gleichstellung television screens. See well worth reading

I believe it is a gross misnomer to call the current usurpers of the printing presses and air waves Main Stream Media for a stream invokes something fresh, pure,cheerfully moving. Unfortunately the media by now became Main Sewer Media – foetid swamp where the only movement is provided by toxic methane bubbles from the decaying Marxist fallacies. Dishonesty and leftist activism abound and we got to the stage where the TV “reality” shows are more realistic than the TV news.

I have some sympathy for that freshly hatched iguana released into the environment teeming with enemies. The dogma of the survival of the fittest notwithstanding, in any case totally ignored by the so called environmentalists, I prefer lizards to snakes, whether in animal or human form.

trust.mediaPerhaps this overwhelming, disastrous cloud has silver lining – for surely by now even the most brain-washed consumer of the fabricated news, “expert” opinions and unashamedly biased commentary must realise the utter depravity of the media.


About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    You are hopeless optimist, Antisthenes. The sheep are far too gone to think for themselves.

  2. Sad Yank says:

    Trump will be betrayed; and a half of America will rejoice. Better a dream than reality.

    No, the West is far too gone. Gramski and Alinski and Soroski are winning.
