Defense of Hypocrites – The Galileo Principle

Kroja_4672
Yesterday’s post dealt with the tendency for progressive intellectuals to use horrible qualifiers when naming Isis, but not when speaking of the great war criminals of the west. I concluded by saying,

“Attaching a name to the western intellectuals/progressives/leftists who vilify the victims and slap the wrists of the weapon-peddling war criminals with politically correct criticism is easy. They’re hypocrites.”

They are, but do they have a choice? I don’t think so. I’m not defending hypocrisy, but something doesn’t fit. The case of William Blum feels like a thorn in my soul. I’ve read a lot of Bill’s work. He is too good to write, “I think they’re (Isis) one of the most disgusting collection of supposed humans in all of history.” Could it be that he didn’t write that? Could someone have handed him a script and said, “Put this in one of your articles.” That someone didn’t even have to add, “Or else!” We know when we are being offered a deal we can’t refuse.

I have no idea what actually happened or why Bill wrote that and the garbage that followed. I’m guessing. The guess explains a lot of strange behavior by un-strange people. Many clever intellectuals display astonishing stupidity in specific areas. This could be explained if they were victims of the Galileo Principle.

In the first part of the 1600s Galileo was forced to deny his own scientific conclusions about the solar system when the Inquisition found his conclusions to smell of heresy. You didn’t want to be labeled heretic by the holy Inquisition torturers wielding religious authority. Signore Galilei renounced his theory (before being tortured to do so) and accepted house arrest. In other words, the Galileo Principle (GP) is the Mafia deal you can’t refuse on a government level. No one wants to be labeled terrorist sympathizer by today’s agency hitmen with governmental authority. Torture is seldom applied, but political crucifixion can be sufficiently painful and economically disastrous. In extreme cases the hitmen do what hitmen do best.

The Galileo Principle would also explain why so many brilliant writers grovel in ridiculous explanations justifying the official version of 9/11. Chris Hedges is too knowledgeable in general and of the government in particular to muddy himself with the official story if not for the GP. Noam Chomsky seems to be Galileo personified. His (anti-)reasoning for why the government’s version should be accepted is embarrassing. Tearfully embarrassing.

This is an apology to the honorable people forced to act dishonorably or as hypocrites. As for the genuinely ignoble and the real hypocrites, see you in the Glass Zoo!

” I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public. But seeing right now within the last months how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia — this is a point of no return and I’m going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do and have done in the past because they are bribed to betray the people, not only in Germany, all over Europe.”
Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, a top German journalist and editor
