Creighton: from idiocy to lies
The idiotic Adam Creighton, who has seemingly been banished from Australia to the US by his Murdoch bosses, put out a Tweet stating:
“’Guess which developed country had the lowest excess mortality between 2020 and 2022: Sweden, which refused to close shops or schools or to impose a mask mandate’.
If that’s true, the humiliation of Team Lockdown is as complete as it is profound.”1
The hate industry
The industry that has sprung up around the hatred of Meghan Markle is an extraordinary development and I wonder where it has come from.
Fear and Hatred
Research has shown that conservatives desire security, predictability and authority more than progressives do, and progressives are more comfortable with novelty, nuance and complexity. If you put a conservative and a progressive in a magnetic resonance imaging machine and present them with identical images, you would see differences in their brain, especially in the areas that process social and emotional information.
This feels a bit weird, and astonishes me a bit. I never thought this is where I’d be after one month short of six years; having written one thousand essays, items or articles on this blog. There were actually 1,005 published here when I posted my 1,000th, as other people had written 5 of them.
The more I started looking around for information to an article I am writing, I eventually realised that one of the things which has upset many in the media was to a limited extent the sort of person I saw in the mirror in the morning. It is not because of my abilities, but the fact that I no longer have to rely on the magnanimity of the editors of the local newspaper, to get my opinions published.
