The absurdity of our times

I look around me and see a world that is upside-down.
Nothing makes sense.
Irrationality reigns supreme.
Every man does what’s right in his own eyes.
But you can’t believe your own eyes.
And a nation that emerged from a world just like this one more than 230 years ago has apparently decided it doesn’t like being different, set apart, dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal, consecrated to God or unique in limiting the power of government under the rule of law and will of the people.
What am I talking about?
Can anyone answer the following for me?
I could go on.
These are just some random observations based on the headlines in the news this week.
We live in an age of active disinformation.
You can learn more about how that works in an absolutely riveting new book and companion documentary, both titled “Disinformation,” the lifelong work of Ion Pacepa, a heroic defector from the Soviet bloc.
It’s not about today’s absurd headlines – it’s the story of how they became today’s absurd headlines.
You will be amazed at what you learn.
Remember the infamous stories about black church bombings in the South that never took place? You’ll find out who planted those stories, how they were perpetrated and whose interests they served.
Remember the ugly stories about Pope Pius XII and how he was supposedly “Hitler’s pope”? “Disinformation” explains the tragic irony of why one of Hitler’s biggest foes was maliciously and fraudulently misportrayed as his friend and ally and why. Who benefited?
Why are Christian-bashing and anti-Semitism on the rise in the U.S. and around the world? You’ll find out it was spurred by an active campaign of deliberate disinformation and discover whose interests it continues to serve.
And very relevant to us today in the U.S., you will learn how the Soviet Union was transformed into the first intelligence dictatorship in the world – but perhaps not the last.
The biggest question you will have when you are through reading or viewing “Disinformation” will be: Why is the author of this book and the inspiration for this movie still forced to live in hiding in America while the beneficiaries of the crimes he exposes are somehow immune from prosecution?
