Letter to the Editor
In 2004 journalist Ron Suskind had a conversation about reality with a senior Bush aid who said that the “”reality-based community consists of people who believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality. That’s not the way the world really works anymore. We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will -we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors … and you, all of you, will be left to study what we do.”
Today a far less arrogant President Bush held a news conference explaining the bailout saying that he didn’t want to have to do it but had to because we had to “recognize reality”.
As the founder of the Church of Reality I want to say that this shows what happens when a nation turns its back on reality. “Thou shall have no other realities before thee.” I want to encourage everyone to take reality into consideration when you go to vote.
