Todavia estoy en algun lugar.
Todavia haciendo algo.
Y algun dia, voy a volver.
hasta entonces, g.
As Josh says:
We're so far deep into this mess that sometimes I believe we're past the point of argument. You look at the evidence and you either see it or you don't.It reminds me of George Orwell's 1984:
In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable—what then?Winston Smith says:
"Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows."Or to quote Orwell from "Looking Back on the Spanish War":
Nazi theory indeed specifically denies that such a thing as "the truth" exists... The implied objective of this line of thought is a nightmare world in which the Leader, or some ruling clique, controls not only the future but the past. If the Leader says of such and such an event, "It never happened"—well, it never happened. If he says that two and two are five—well, two and two are five.Nazi Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring said:
"If the Führer wants it, two and two make five!"It wasn't just a Nazi term, however. Joseph Stalin also used the slogan "2+2=5" to suggest his Five Year Plan would finish a year early. And Leo Tolstoy's last words, when urged to convert to the Russian Orthodox Church, were:
"Even in the valley of the shadow of death, two and two do not make six."That was probably a reference to Ivan Turgenev, who said:
"Whatever a man prays for, he prays for a miracle. Every prayer reduces itself to this: Great God, grant that twice two be not four."If you believe in Bush, anything is possible, and reason goes out the window.
