The Sunday Morning Tune-up ~ “Is Truth Dead?”


“Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.” ~ Theodore Dalrymple

Last week Liberal commentator Ted Koppel lashed out at Conservative Sean Hannity, telling him he was “bad for America”, exactly one year after slamming Moderate Bill O’Reilly for taking Television from “objective and dull, to subjective and entertaining.” Mind you, Koppel’s attack on Hannity came weeks after MSNBC Liberal Mika was caught confessing that her job was to “control what people think.”

All four of these folks are in the “Public Opinion” business. Their differences lie in how they relate to the public they serve. Two of them treat the public as adults who need to know the truth, while the others treat the public as children who can’t handle it. As long as these four remain free to debate their opinions in what Rush refers to as the “Arena of Ideas”, the answer to Time Magazine’s question is “NO”.

The most epic and crucial war of our lifetime, the “Infowars” as coined by Alex Jones, is raging all around us. The stakes? Individual freedom and property rights vs globalist totalitarianism. The Globalists know they are losing this war, not because of Alex, Rush, Sean or Bill…but because the arena remains open to an internet of “free expression”. If you compare the ratings of Alex, Rush, Sean, and Bill to Ted, Mika, and most all of MSM, you realize that BREXIT and President Trump are simply the results of the majority’s informed will.

Besides being true, the Dalrymple quote above tells us that the American Left has become the new Fascist State. Zuckerberg and Bezos have become their Goebbels and Eichmann, turning their social media and marketing empires into tools for the State, scrambling for the holy grail of algorithms as the exclusive arbiters of fake news…for our own good, of course.

So as they continue their desperate attempts to tie Trump to the Russians and paint Alex Jones and Roger Stones as Russian spies, we have Nazi heir/EU Boss Jean-Claude Juncker threatening to “Break up the USA”, while here in America (All thanks to Drudge) we can hear La Raza/DNC Chair Perez claiming that “Trump didn’t win election.” & Republicans “don’t give a s—t about people.” Think about this; Perez followed Brazile (who fed the questions to Clinton before the Presidential Debate) who followed Wasserman-Schultz (who rigged the Democratic Primary to favor Clinton and screw Sanders).

And chalk this one up in the “truth stranger than fiction” category; Globalist George W. Bush of the Bush Dynasty who was as silent as a church mouse during the 8-yr reign of the most Anti-American President in history, seems to have more than plenty to say about President Trump!

In the aftermath of the most recent ISLAMIC TERROR attack in London, I saw a young man interviewed at the scene of the crime. I was struck by his passion and fearless eloquence. His name is Tommy Robinson. Thanks to Alex Jones I now know who Tommy Robinson is. You need to watch his interview with Alex. I can’t get his line “English children are walking with their heads down” out of my head because I know this is what they want for our children.

“The Fascists of the future will be the anti-fascists.” ~ Winston Churchill

    Chip, the Time Magazine cover reminds me of the exchange Jesus had with Pilate: ” Pilate said to him, “Then you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say I am a king.For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.” Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”(John 18:37-38). Our minds by their very nature seek the truth. Only God knows the whole truth which for us was and is embodied in Jesus Christ, the source of everything true and good. Imperfect as we are, here and now, we have to make our way through so much opinion and prejudice. When I get around to it I will be writing about “Where is the truth in our opinions? on my FB pages, My article will begin with the OED (Oxford English Dictionary) definition of “opinion” and “truth” which Gorsuch referred, rightly, during his confirmation hearings. (The OED, all twenty-two volumes took more than eighty years of research to earn its reputation based on historical research. I have a micro film copy of the dictionary requiring a magnifying glass. Someday I will find $1,200 to buy the twenty-two copy.)

    Here is the first historical meaning of the word “opinion”, the tip of a iceberg:
    “1 a. What one thinks or how one thinks about something; judgement resting on grounds insufficient for complete demonstration; belief of something as probable, or as seeming to one’s mind to be true, though not certain or established. ( Distinguished from knowledge, conviction, or certainty, but sometimes = belief.)
    b. Qualified by common, general, public, vulgar, etc.: Such judgement or belief on the part of a number, or the majority, of persons; what is generally thought about something. Also in attrib. Phrases [poll. Sb. 7d] , polling , survey (see opinion poll, sense 9 below), etc.” (There is much, much more.)

      With respect Fr. Tom, your post leaves a great deal of wiggle room for the enemies of Truth. I suspect what you mean to say is “objective” truth rather than the “whole” truth…otherwise, based on your theory, every witness or defendant in the American court of law who swore to tell the “whole” truth and nothing but the truth, lied. “Subjective” is the ultimate imposter, and IMHO the Pied Piper of lost souls. Not only is man capable of knowing objective Truth Fr. Tom , he is morally bound to it.

      • Thomas Bartolomeo says:

        Chip, without getting “into the weeds” and argument by analogy there is as you say meaning in the differences between “objective” and “subjective” truth, at least, as classic
        Aristotelian Thomistic philosophy is concerned in the “love of truth” (philo-sophia). Your analogy drawn from the American court system in all its decisions ends with the judge saying, “in the opinion of the court” etc. It is the best the judge can do and a jury trial can do, and why there are appeal courts. There is no “wiggle” room there just as there is no uncertainty in the U.S. Constitution that we “are endowed by our Creator with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Note the claim, “pursuit of happiness”, unattainable in our country or anywhere in this world from time immemorial. We may pursue happiness and truth in this world, but never fully attain it here. Its attainment is God which Thomas Aquinas argued from a philosophical and theological causality. Knowingly or not, most well-meaning people seek the truth which for many is God and the human embodiment of God, Jesus Christ. This is why I began my argument referencing Pilate’s question to Jesus’ statement, “I have come as a witness to the truth”. As an admirer of Thomas Aquinas I recommend you consult Aquinas’ “Shorter Summa” his own concise version of his “Summa Theologica”. For the many years I spent pursuing philosophy and theology I, like Aquinas’ student, can only say

    @ Fr. Tom ~ I am so looking forward to enlightening discussion with you Fr. Tom! Interesting you mention St. Thomas, as I quoted him on “virtue” being the seed of happiness this morning. Interesting also, that while happiness is very subjective, virtue is hardly so. I finished watching the John Adams miniseries last evening. What I find truly remarkable about the life of John Adams? He, who arguably clung more dearly to his virtue than most if not all of his founding peers, seemed the least happy of all of them.
