If you have "no place to go," come here!

Honesty is such a lonely word

Chris Floyd:

Even if you break through somehow, momentarily, and hold up a fragment of the truth, most people have no context for dealing with it. It's like a bolt from the blue, they can't process the information. And so the sea of lies closes over us again, and again, and again.

But I don't know what else we can do, except to keep on telling as much of the truth as we can find, to anyone who will listen: reclaiming reality, fragment by fragment, one person at a time.

It's an endless task -- maybe a hopeless task -- but the alternative is a surrender to the worst elements in our society -- and in ourselves.

about you and lambert and others. You're relentless in pursuing truth and demanding honesty and accountability.

It's refreshing, much needed, and, really, just the right thing to do.

i really liked vastleft's comment (to chris floyd's post), part of which i will copy-n-paste here:

I'm worn out from trying to get someone, anyone to explain why all lefties are being demanded (by the big bloggers, MoveOn, even Will Farrell!) to support "public option," without the slightest information being provided as to what that wafty term actually means.

I'm holding out for Arthur Silber to continue his tribalism series and perhaps provide a little more insight into the self-satisfied, cliquish, ineffectual world of American "progressive" politics.

vl, if you ever get that explanation please share. (i really don't think tribalism is enough to explain it, but i'm at a loss to provide any alternative).
