I’m simply aghast and how intensely all the TV News Channels are now in General Election Results Prediction Mode ~ thrashing around permutations and combinations and probabilities and possibilities and airing two bit sound bytes of every political hue and person with propoganda and profanities clearly standing out
Profound Prognostication by Psephologists and Politicians ~with Anchors plugging some as Prophetic !
I’m more aghast at how even the Intelligentia are glued to these loud coverages and want to discuss them ! ~ I started to hum a Classic Song I love to put off one such discussion that was threatening to begin last evening when I met up with a few
Took me to Isaac Asimov ~ his quotes and my brief interpretation below reflects my mood and mindset currently
“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.’” ~ there’s a scarcity and a premium on those who are truly intelligent, wise ,selfless,moral and visionary ~ anybody living that comes instantly to your mind !
“Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.” ~ It’s not restricted to just West Bengal !
“I write for the same reason I breathe … because if I didn’t, I would die.” ~ Reason I blog to express my anguish at times ~ at most other times I’m an Optimist !
“Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.” ~ It’s a humble submission that many of us are far wiser and intelligent and mature and knowledgeable and understanding that those who assault our senses on TV News Channels day in and day out
Of course Isaac Asimov’s Atheism or as he puts it ‘Rationalism’ is a matter to ponder on another day !
