If the stars in the sky are fake then the younger brother has violated the agreement with the older brother

"I think enough intellectuals are hellbent on destroying this man's power that we can expect it to vanish in the near future."

that's a nonsense proposition, if it was true trump never would have won, so I told him to be quite.

I wrote :) to show that I am just the type of optimist you suggested

Trump has been back and forth from bankruptcy, built major companies, major structures, runs a major enterprise, conducted a SUCCESSFUL major campaign AGAINST the establishment (who the media was in the corner for, undeniably). But you doubt his ability to conduct himself for the successful interests of the United States?

The public voted against decorum and dignity in 2016, Trump won, now he's acting like it, going about business the way he knows how.

Yes, you would expect him to ascribe good intentions to media that slanders him? You've never been the center of a negative press piece

Trumps argument is those standards are outdated and toxic

*or at least the system they've created is such

The mainstream press is an inbreed obfuscation system, it should be attacked.

This is very much in line as what I see as the general decline of privacy. I'm writing an article about how my company plans on exploiting this decline, the most relevant section has yet to come, but parts 1-3 are available here: www.linkedin.com/pulse/world-ending-wdd-commoditization-your-attention-part-one-streich

kcWDD  ·  1039 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: A post-truth thought experiment

No, lies allow us to set the boundary on the truth; without lies and the recognition of things as lies, we would have no basis from which to establish what is real and common.

Just think about unintentional lies; are they detrimental as you claim or are they essential because our phenomenological experiences can't be totally shared.

"Anscombe's quartet is a famous example of four two-variable datasets that look very different when graphed but that nevertheless have an identical x-y correlation, as well as identical means and standard deviations."
