What levels of trust do you grant to people. Why?

great-men-most-of-the-time

Life is pointing me to this: “You should not put absolute trust in someone unless you are willing to experience dissappointment”

As a monotheist you can guess where my absolute trust resides, but for now, I’m talking about this physical prison we currently live in. Prison you say? Well it sure ain’t no damn paradise – unless of course you block out knowledge of the atrocious lives 3,000,000,000 people, half the population!, who somehow manage to endure on a daily basis until such time when they can bear it no more. Well, either you block out knowledge of that or you heart is made of stone.

Leaders, be they people of courage and/or intellect, or of a political nature, are often given absolute trust. The more ‘followers’ that leader has, the more infatuous that trust is and therfore becomes unrequirted to a greater extent. After all, when was the last time you heard a leader listening and acting upon the concerns of one of his supporters. It is a humanism that the more support one has, the more likely one is to ignore the voice of an individual supporter.

Empirically, one deduces the trust easily becomes blind and that is dangerous. It allows for the continual emergence of butchers like Tony bLiar, Bush, Howard and Aznar to slaughter with impunity.

The same arguement holds for religious leaders too (and I can’t be bothered to list the cross section of ‘religions’ held by such leaders, to encourage you to think my scorn is balanced). It’s my opinion that ALL religious leaders are tainted in some way or another. To these the economists analogy… Put two economists in a room to answer a question and you’ll end up with three different answers. A respected American Imam once said “Islam is perfect, Muslims are not”. C’est vrai absolument!

This undoubting trust endures for a long periods and it breeds zealotry.

If we are honest with ourselves, we can consciously identify at least one thing we zealous about. Steadfast belief in something has its virtues, but ALL humans are flawed. Even the prophets have exhibited humanistic flaws albeit they were most likely free from sin.

So if you find yourself in strong empathy with someone you admire, please realise that eventually they will say something wrong, and you should be prepared to distance yourself from that, or you have failed in this case to adhere to your responsibility to act as a congitive human being.

Many people realise this, but FAR more don’t!

I say this becasue of a number of reports featuring Howard Zinn, or to use my ascribed pet name for him: “the mighty Zinn” {singalong: http://www.vicsfan.uklinux.net/Quinn.mp3}

Howard Zinn is a legend in the making – an accomplished historical author and social political activist) freind of Noam Chomsky. But Zinn (like Chomsky) aren’t bothered an are dismissive about 9-11; the catalysing event that will likely send shockwaves around the planet for decades if not centuries to come.
Such repected men are displaying utter idiocy in ignoring it, in fact Zinn should know far better as being a historian I’m sure he’s well aware of the phrase “those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it”. Zinn and Chomsky seem to be displaying ‘conspiracies exist but not in out lifetime’ syndrome, and these otherwise giants of men, are being accused of gatekeeperism.

They may well be, but if they are, it seems to me they are self-employed gatekeepers – a facet of human behavior Chomsky himself identifies about the Journalistic ‘profession’. But it is so hard to see ones criticisms in oneself isn’t it.  Click HERE to see how ones mind can lead to the self censorship of acknowldgement, concerning the deaths of over 2 million Cambodians.  

Trouble is, the Zealots of Zinn and Chomsky are likely to seal off their critical faculties
to facts and the over whelming balance of probabilities, simply becasue they leap to their defence when others find Zinn and Chomsky’s declarations on the matter extremely intellectually bankrupt.

At the same time, 9-11’ers are drawing upon their own zealotry against Zinn and Chomsky, casting them as oppositin rather than people who should be enaged and encouraged to discuss the issue in a proper intellectual and reasoned fashion and not to try and dismiss 9-11 with dismissive “terse quips or undignified, ugly self-thought high-brow ridicule other supposed intelligent people can’t seem to help dishing out whenever substantiated counter opinion is offered their way.
