On Defenestration

Look, the "reality of things" is rapidly revealing itself across the world, by the hour actually. And I'm posting on issues that are in the flow world events. I post to inspire questioning and knowledge, and I was hoping to foster some insight and a lot of discourse. Hell any discourse. If it's too much, then I will stop posting. Although, I think hiding your head and skulking away in self-righteous ignorance is no way to face freedom of expression and the minor shock of the cold water wake up call I'm trying to splash in peoples faces.

My splash of water is just that, MY splash of water. Counter the ideas, post something contradictory, something, but it doesn't take much than a nice big portion of Quit to just walk away in the face of opposition. The truth is out there, if you think I'm wrong, prove it, don't run, hide and arrogantly dismiss something well documented and never even try to disprove or redirect the issue.

CEO doesn't want to think about such things, CEO is happy to just be the CEO, and that's fine. But just because real defenestration takes a little thicker skin than it seemed at first does not mean the "Experiment" failed, but that the "researcher" didn't really want to "research" and so they retired. Most of the time when people are intellectually and politically challenged, it brings up some very tough subjects, and they quickly realize they would much rather not have to wrestle with such deep reaching issues, and shut off.

Often people think they are open minded, but in essence they just use that as a euphemism for going with the crowd. They usually use that "open minded" phrase when trying to convince someone else that the popular opinion is the right one, usually without any credence or backing other than the fact it's the popular opinion. The pressure to conform to the popular opinion is so strong in society that it is a rare thing for a man to break out of that mindset willfully.

Just so it's clear, everything I post is not an endorsement or something I even agree with, but for the sake of open and free discussion they are always relevant to our daily changing world. I do not want to break taboos if they are too much to deal with, I thought this would be a good place to test the boundaries a bit, but I did not intend to destroy those boundaries, and with that you have my apologies. Not for any post(s), but for steering this ship where the others didn't want it to go.

If it's getting too intense to deal with these issues, I will be more than happy to wrap it up and end my posting, on the more "sensitive" issues, or posting all together. If not, I will continue to defenestrate all the bullshit I can find. I don't want to take people where they don't want to go, so just let me know.

Your friend and Kamerad,

Gen. Cartman E. Lee
