    When you believe you know everything, there is no need for GOD. When you make the Internet a part of your life, you have the answer to all life's mysteries. When society provides for all your needs, there is no reason to manage your life.

    And when you live your life on the Internet, you are free from the consequences of your actions. You are truly a Universe unto your self. You can disparage a President, claim a title, declare yourself an intellectual, create absurd scenarios, and all can be proven by invoking similar delirious people from history, or present day illusionists.

    Millions of people have millions of opinions and the Internet has collected them all, and gives them equal value. The 10 Commandments have become the 10 Million Commandments,. One can pick and choose the ones that suite his delusions and promote his ego.

    I believe that is why our society is so divided today! There is no need for reality. We create the world we want, and then defend it with links, cites, copy/paste and like postings. The value of our created world is measured by likes, hearts, and comments. The more sycophants we collect, the greater the credibility of our ideas.

    Some proclaim this distribution of delusion as FREE SPEACH. “He has a right to his opinion”, as if each of us is sovereign. But we are not!! We are all part of a society! When you invoke painful memories, propose one group superior over another, one lifestyle over another, disparage personal traits, attack ad homonym. You deny truth. Every man is a unique miracle of creation with his own way of dealing with life's challenges.. And truth is the only way we have of making correct decisions.

    So I sit in Paradise and watch the Media Circus. No longer are trusted news sources delayed by investigation. If you think it; print it, then defend your action later. People who are well paid to do tricks with a ball, or make illusion real, or show body parts usually covered, are suddenly Social Scientists who choose the value of a person by what's between their legs, or skin tone, or material accumulation, or whether they agree with you.

    We now are witnessing a Renaissance of Reality. Time to look after our own self interest. Take care of ourselves first. Government cannot cure all our social problems. We have to take responsibility for what we say and do. RESPECT, the choices of others! It is their life to live in the manner they choose, and passing LAWS that restrict that right is tyranny.

    What we are being told by media, entertainment sources, government, and internet can no longer be trusted. We are all skeptics now, and rightly so. The only thing that will win back the trust of the people is proven success

    Google knows more about you than your Mother!

    I understand there are good uses for the Internet. I use it daily. But we must use discretion in attributing credibility to what is available. Too many people post ridiculous accusations such as Republicans want us all to Die, and then use Internet sites to prove it!

    Add to this the fraud, hacking, bank credit theft, stealing of Hospital records, false information, slander, and evil harm that forces young people to suicide and the good and bad attributes are balancing each other out.

    What is at stake is the ability of people to make intelligent lifestyle decisions. Look at the insanity going on today because of false Internet information. Women are marching and going hysterical over what might happen. False information is spread around the world, before anyone can counter it. Obama ignored the China hacking that stole personal information from IRS.

    IT hasn't reached the critical point yet, but soon the government will have no choice but to license internet users and sites.

    I owned what is now called a Dive Bar in a mixed neighborhood in California. I had to deal with the consequences of bad behavior, and stupid talk.

    For over 20 years Progressives were able to spit in the face of tradition, and anyone who objected lost their business, or was jailed. LGBT, Militant Women, minorities, even Handicapped told the majority of people how to live.

    Well a slow anger was growing in the minds of "Normal" people. White Anglo Saxon Protestants. Who saw their taxes going up, and their freedom going down.

    Wives who had added little to a marriage suddenly were entitled to half of a husbands life savings and pension. Gays went in search of Christian business who would not participate in their sex choice. Lawyers searched for non compliance with handicapped access. Even where there were no handicap customers. And so the social abuse went on, and the majority had to take it.

    Then along came Trump, and they said ENOUGH with the Social Rhetoric. The people who made the country great, deserve their SELF RESPECT.
    I have mixed feelings about what Trump is doing, but the proof is in the action, not the rhetoric. So I and the world wait to see what happens.

    Please, let's deal with the concepts provided here. This is my view of what is going on today! What is yours? I don't pretend to have all the answers. I would have to be GOOGLE for that!

    Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."
    ― Isaac Asimov

    I suppose some people think that is so. I don't. Credibility and soundness differ from popularity, which is what one demonstrates by having more toadies.

    I, for one, respect one's right to make choices as one sees fit, but I may or may not respect the choices one makes.

    Well, okay, but to what end? The lacuna between attempting to prove a point and preponderantly or fully proving it soundly. Many people achieve the former, far fewer the latter.

    If you must resort to lies, innuendo and trickery to prove a point, that proves the point you are making has no merit of its own!

    But good points. I think many on this site share your point of view!

    Somehow my replies became part of your quotes. I am not proficient with the methods of this site yet! I apologize, and hope you can sort it out!. If not, ask again, and I will try to do better!

    I have never been so committed to a point of view, ideology, or policy that I have used lies, trickery or innuendo to win an argument. That is a betrayal of understanding I am not willing to engage in. And there have been times that it cost me dearly! And I am not kind to those who do!

    Not too sure about this R of R, not a lot of people taking personal responsibility for themselves IMHO, nor much respect for others and maybe not so much even for themselves. Maybe I am misunderstanding what you're getting at, but what manifestations do you see of more people becoming more grounded in reality?

    This stuff about Normal = WASP, doesn't sit well. If that's what you think or how you feel, I guess you're entitled. But there's a whole lot of other people that think of themselves as 'Normal'.
