There Is A Straight Line....

...between this "argument" and the stories coming out of Iran back in the day about "terrorists" wearing the uniforms of soldiers. There was always a question of whether such stories were true, or just a convenient way of hiding the fact we weren’t winning hearts and minds. As ever: cui bono?

Either way, everything old is new again.  Noting is sui genesis.  Everything is connected to everything else; and that’s usually the problem: now is always all tangled up with then, even as we try to separate the two and insist there is a cleavage between the past and the present. We learn familiar concepts, and then we use them as a way of thinking. Or as a way of not having to think.
