Feeling quite tempted by reverse solipsism again this morning.

When are political agitators going to get over the idea that people have been fooled in such straightforward ways? My sense of what's going on is more like: really stupid people have been fooled in the imagined ways, most people have been fooled as follows: it's ok for the stupid people to believe x, because it serves y purpose which they would never support if they were told what they were actually supporting, where y can take on an astonishingly wide range of values. What's to be done?

Tweet, tweet, tweet,
I am a little birdie,
Sweet, sweet, sweet
Is my song.
Beat, beat, beat
The gongs of war and massacre-
Meat, meat, meat
for us all.
