Truth Pulps Fiction

Just finished watching a documentary on Netflix about some bloke called Roger Stone. The programme was about this bloke, Roger, and another bloke he knew called Donald. They seemed to go back a long way. The lines between which one was running for President became blurred on a few occasions. Yes, Donald was front and centre but behind and centre (and quite often out front too) was the other bloke, Roger. They made for an interesting, if not overly likeable pair.

I’m not going to moan about American’s voting for Roger’s friend as their President. That was their own democratic choice to make, and they made it. What I would moan about was the cesspit of personal attacks, lies, allegation, counter allegation, media manipulation, distortion and obfuscation that turned the Presidential race into something from your worst nightmares.

The world does seem to be becoming an angrier place.  A more extreme place. A less likeable place. The battle for the moral low ground is in full flight.

Thanks for reading.
