    The Contemptible Citizen Kane

    Where we expose the insipid Orson Welles movie, as a rankling propaganda piece. It is surprising they were able to get away clean, with this cover-up and whitewash, and hardly a soul seems to have jumped in to condemn the rotten pestilence. But nothing should surprise you any more. In fact, the people who did step up were censored, mocked, and subjected to all the usual hysteria and cover-ups.

    This article looks at deception, which comes in forms we often don't identify, or it wouldn't be deception. Look at the legal system. In any sensible legal system, each side would present its case, and the guilty would be punished and wrongs made right. There'd be no reason for reams of paperwork, formalities, lawyers and intense study. Law would and should be the simplest of disciplines.

    It's nothing new for my opinion to be in the minority -- a minority of one, for the most part, ha ha ha. For example, I can't understand why they don't just lower the hoops in basketball and use average-height players, instead of scouring the planet for those 7-foot-tall giants.
