Bread and Games

We live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, and political groups.  I ask in my writing ‘What is real?’ Because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudo realities manufactured by very sophisticated people use very sophisticated electronic mechanisms.

Using a Hegelian concept of “being” or “reality” our society is offering more and more opportunities to participate in activities that create an alternative reality.  That is why the young person who handed your coffee and change this morning seemed not to connect with you at all.  The place where you intersect with their world is not on that easily accessed, safe, electronic media.  His reality does not include you. He does not belong to your reality.  That can’t be good.

Author: W. D. Edmiston

W.D. Edmiston is a culture warrior of sorts who is concerned more for the original intent of the founders of the USA and cares much less about the later culture changes that relate to the "feelings" crowd or judgemental debate over who is sleeping with whom. An originalist on the Constitution as well, he is an outspoken critique of Marxism and the modern court system, especially the Roberts Supreme Court. The blog is an America First style of thinking - from strength we can set the best example to other countries.
