"That’s not the way the world really works anymore. We have a reality based community now."

I heard the following statement from a anonym 911 Truther and want to share that with you:

"Guys like Rumsfeld and Cheney were in what some call the “Iran-Contra-Team B” community, which can be defined as people who believe in the rule of fear and macciavellian lies over dumb people for their own agenda.
That’s not the way the world really works anymore.
We have a reality based community now, thanks to the Internet, it’s the biggest democrating force since the printing press.
And while our leaders are still spitting out their old cold-war propaganda drivel, all those lies were exposed immediately.
Think of 911- they were so light-headed and maybe frightened that they conducted such a visible Inside Job – hence this will demolish the good old hidden Problem-Reaction-Solution sceme.
That’s how things will sort out.
The Truthers are history’s actors, and all the powers that be will be hold accountable for the things that they had done."


In loving memory of the anonym aide who was lost in time...

The aide said that guys like me [i.e., reporters and commentators] were "in what we call the reality-based community,"
which he defined as people who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality."
I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off.
"That's not the way the world really works anymore," he continued.
"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 just study what we do.



Thanks Danse for the inspiration.
