Should Be Better Than Thee
Happy mid-term election year. Sure to be, among other things, exciting. But given the chaos and energy spent during the year rump, I wonder if we still have the constitution to end game this out.
Seems the current occupier of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave views a third of his job, that being Head Of State, as the low-rent landlord of social media fecal posting, while forswearing the uncomfortable and ubiquitous fact, and then feels the need to act as a High Priest of the Commons, curating the follies of the low-brow cultural flow.
But hey, that’s pretty much my personal profile. Some dross on Twitter, often daily dealing in denial, and acting as a self-proclaimed potentate of what’s good for the public peons.
But I’m not the President Of the country. Nor do I day job as the Chief Executive of this nation. And not for a second would I presume to be capable and so honored as to have the responsibility in being Commander in Chief of the armed forces of the United States.
Now I know, he’s not a politician. It ain’t his game. A fish, a big tower of a tuna out of water. That’s the pardon his partisans proffer. That’s the excuse for his keyboard fisticuffs, his crowd-sourced mean-spiritedness, and his administration’s campaign against actuality.
They say he gets a pass because he’s unaccustomed to what constitutes a “customary” political society. They olé his bull-shit and bamboozle and relish his radicalism, unaware that it just might roll away the rock that grounds their Republic. And they do so because they can feel, but are unable to grasp, and even less capable to articulate that mind numbing, but politically necessary notion of The Noble Lie.
Hold your breath. This might be more than just a hiccup of U.S.history.
In politics, a noble lie is a myth or untruth, often, but not invariably, of a religious nature, knowingly propagated by an elite to maintain social harmony or to advance an agenda. The noble lie is a concept originated by Plato as described in the Republic. More Here
