Living in a Post-Reality World

Dave McGowan is really going to town on the Boston bombing-- but more good stuff.

Somewhat along same the lines of our brave new fake world, this Fetzer interview with Jim Tracy and Sophie Smallstorm on Sandy Hook is interesting.

My feeling is these terror attacks, fake incidents serve many different purposes.
1) keep people afraid, more likely to buy guns
2) to keep people unsettled and unsure what to trust
3) the news media must enjoy the increased viewers they get
4) the national security state gets to try out new tricks, new ruses, martial law crackdown, etc

Thanks for the link, I wasn't aware he was writing on it. This guy is brilliant and funny on things like the moon landing, and on the bizarre intertwined history of the CIA and rock music. Let's see what he uncovers.
