“..If there is a single problem with our lives today, it is the breathtaking shallowness of modern life. We seem infatuated with grade-school gossip and a breathless yearning for “stuff,” as if the latest gadgetry or a fatter bank account could make anything real in our lives better.

It is astounding how little most people know of history and religion. It is frightening how illogical and anti-historical the vast majority of us have become.
The flurry of “news” these days is nothing more than rhetorical spitballs and name-calling. Most news outlets anymore are almost unwatchable, with hosts who luxuriate in banality. Most of these nebbishes say the same things all the time and demonstrate little more than nice legs, pretty faces, and ample breasts.
Our system of statist institutional education parrots what fits into the cesspool of social conformity, producing graduates who know less than before they entered college. Our public school students are programmed to feed corrupt and stupid academia and to crank out like sausages lobotomized and neutered creatures, as incapable of challenging the vast network of illogic and lies that governs society as the tormented subjects of Oceania in Orwell’s 1984.

It will take intellectual courage, which seems lacking everywhere. That means telling the truth instead of saying what one is expected to say..” Shallow Reality in America
