Have you read any good books lately? Are you part of a book club? Do you read the New York Times bestsellers list? Or do you listen to your friends' recommendations?
I have recently started reading a book concerning people asking dumb questions and have begun a study of those people, can I use you as a specimen?
Ha! Very funny, but there are no dumb questions. At least, that's what they told me when I was in school.
You're right, Defender, Bugsy wasn't helpful, was he? Maybe Bugsy is just feeling a mite bored today.
Well, here's a book that captured my interest. It gives a very good glimpse into how the real world works. By extrapolation, it should motivate the reader to turn off those tvs and desist participating in the drivel that masks as entertainment. Supplying the populace with a wide range of diversions allows the "decision makers" free rein to get on with their business (which, incidentally, isn't anything that's going to benefit us). Also, whilst reading through this illuminating book, keep in mind how far down the socioeconomic scale all but the decision makers have sunk over these past 10 years.
And finally, if we remember nothing else, we should be at all times aware that no empire has ever remained in tact. Aject greed, lies, fraud, state sanctioned murders, inhumanity to man invariably serves to topple once great nations. Such an event may well be put off another 100 years or so if people would only climb out of very deep denial.
So read, think, extrapolate, and then be prepared to ask questions, lots and lots of questions. And as you say, there are no stupid questions. Just beware that being refused answers is a strong signal to ask yet another question, Why?
And the book is, "Crossing the Rubicon" by Michael C. Ruppert
