1. This is not a game – playing with our lives to gain an “edge” for your belief or political party has to stop.
2. Standard and Poor’s has made so many bad calls over the past few years, that it is difficult to take seriously and I don’t think people should take them seriously any longer – S&P you are downgraded for good!
3. Media and “pundits” – you are as much to blame as those attempting to gain a political edge. You are just spinning your own coverage to gain attention and gain your own edge. You time is nearly up as well.
4. We – the public – can all see that you are playing a “naked” game and while at times amusing – it has to end.
We need each other and need to work together – now! http://amplify.com/u/a1abxr
Threat from self-delusion:
The monster of Norway, the Unabomber, the Oklahoma City Bomber, and the pilots of 9-11 airplanes all suffered from two extreme self-delusions:
a. That their actions would cause what they believed would be “positive global” effects,
b. That they were fulfilling a calling, a destiny for greatness, and would be admired/remembered for their actions.
Threat from rationality:
a. Our collective self-delusion that the world is or can be 100% rational – that the actions of madmen can be rationally explained and thus be somehow prevented in future.
b. No single person can carry out such madness, therefore there must be some secret group behind the horrendous act(s). http://amplify.com/u/a19n41
I have Posterous checked to automatically get my Amplify posts but nothing has posted since March 21, 2011 – anyone had similar experience or explanation? Thanks. http://amplify.com/u/a17j47
