Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

So scary...

-          4% of voters say they believe “lizard people” control our societies by gaining political power
Only 4%?

Conspiracy theories are fun, but they also speak to a need for the human mind to impose order on the world.  The randomness of, say, 9/11 is as terrifying as the event itself.  So we create a conspiracy about the government being behind it, because that gives it some order.

The world is crazy and chaotic.

I blame the lizard people.
