SERIES OF THE UNFORTUNATE? 3
Here we were , talking about character and boundaries and keeping limits and the story breaks of General McChrystal and the ill fated interview. you could agree or disagree with his comments, you could argue whether he should or should not have been fired. My point is as to what it reveals about us as a nation.
We have no secrets, we are Jerry Springer, Oprah, The Real Wives of New Jersey nation. We discuss incest and affairs of the heart on national TV. Even the esteemed NPR does not shy away from a lady talking about her love (in a sexual manner) of her parrot, or a lady writer talking about the steamy, albeit, imaginary infatuation of a sister for her brother.
Isn't any thing sacred anymore, or a secret, then why all the fuss about a general letting it all hang out about his Commander-in Chief , even as we talk about the Gore break up in a number of tawdry terms.The hypocrisy of us asking others and more specifically asking of our leaders to be something different than we are. In reality, if art imitates life, and the sitcoms and the reality TV is what we are as human beings, I don't hold much hope for our future, with or without McChrystal, I actually don't think we should have a future.
LIFE IS A GAME OF CONNECT THE DOTS, IF YOU DON'T CONNECT ALL THE DOTS OR DON'T CONNECT THEM IN THE RIGHT ORDER YOU NEVER GET THE PICTURE
