Impeach?

 

How many legs does a dog have

if you count the tail as a leg?

Four.

Calling the tail a leg

does not make it a leg.

 

                                  –   Abraham Lincoln

 

 

 

 

 

 

Will our (Republican dominated) senate muster up the necessary tunnel vision (ignoring the facts, ignoring their oath) to acquit our Mr. Trump of his betrayal of the public trust?  

It looks like it.

Is not such Tunnel Vision really a form of arrogance?  [thinking that we’re so important that we are at liberty to ignore whatever does not pertain to Republican Party politics.  (Who cares about Context?  Who cares about the nature of the Broader Situation?)  As though we were our own Primary Reality!]

 

But suppose they don’t.  Suppose for a minute they find him guilty (of the crimes indicated by the facts)

Do you imagine that Donald Trump will admit that he did wrong?   Mmm?

 

NOT A CHANCE !

 

Donald Trump is Our Problem.  He’s US, really. He’s the Arrival our society has been heading toward for quite some time.

 

And … WHICH do you think is more important?  President Trump being on trial? …. or the fact that our Entire Society is on Trial before the World?

 

WHAT is our relationship with the Truth?   (and how has that relationship been developing during the last couple centuries?)

 

We treat Knowledge as though it were a disease.  In our public schools, we teach our children that if they can just pass (a certain) test … they will then be “immune” to the knowledge covered in the test … and they won’t have to bother with it further.  (Once you’ve had the measles, you won’t have to deal with it again. You’ll then be immune.)

 

And – what about the “sport” of Debate?  We’ve been doing (formalized) debate since 1892   (a century and a quarter)   

     

What do these competitions tell us about our society’s relationship with the Truth?

(quite a bit, I think) –

 

Does a formal (inter-collegiate) debate (or the preparation for it) even vaguely resemble a truth-seekers’ Think-Tank?  (A cooperative striving to come closer to the truth.  An earnest attempt to understand some particularly elusive aspect of reality)?

 

No.

 

It’s all about persuasion. 

The Reality (of the real World) … the Truth of the matter … such considerations have long ago faded into the mist … somewhere now over the horizon, perhaps hidden by the (modern-cognitive) curve of the earth.

 

Instead … it’s Salesmanship.

 

We have traded in Reality (and the Truth) … for MARKETING.

 

And so we have (through long labor) produced a man with a heightened sense of How he Looks / of Appearance … and NO sense of the Truth.  (and we have made him our PRESIDENT)

 

And now (as we struggle over whether to relieve him of his position) we display – for all the world to see … just HOW FAR (from the Truth) … we have come.

 

(Such an achievement!)

 

 

Impeach the President?        It’s WE who are on trial.
