Knowledge, truth and human action: America hits the wall

Americans have a problem with the truth. They seem to be unable to accept it, which is difficult to understand at a time in history when knowledge plays a larger and larger role in determining human action. Recognition of this problem is widespread. Beliefs and lies somehow always overwhelm truth, even when they are so contradictory that any effective action becomes impossible. A kind of national, psychological paralysis occurs. Nothing can be done because one belief contradicts another, and for some unknown reason, the facts don't matter.

"What do you believe to be truth?" Survey

In the interest of starting an entertaining discussion (things have been a little slow around here lately) I wanted to ask everyone to participate in an informal survey. The objective is quite simple:

List five to ten things that you believe to be truths in the present moment of your life.

Assume that you are on your deathbed at this very moment:

What's wrong with this Picture?

I read these two articles and asked myself, and thought, how can two such divergent outlooks be so far off? Reality verses reality check. I think you will find it fascinating and scary. 

First is from bloomberg and Jp morgan

Bonds and the American Experiment

America is just an experiment. Keynesian economics is just a grand experiment.  The FED is a privately owned banking cartel.  History is written by the victors.  History always repeats itself.  History is also completely full of lies.   If you tell a lie long enough... How long does it take for people to start believing the lie to be a truth?  The Fed manipulates / controls the Bond Markets . There is no way around it.

Pessimism Porn

Well it sure beats the majority of folks who want to bury there heads in the sand and pretend everything is fine. You don't know how many people I know who just say I don't want to hear about it or talk about it?
