Simply to simplify

No Rights

it was once said,
“True refinement is to simplify.”
This my friend is an idea that
speaks truth to action.

This also stated well with
Occam’s razor. The principle
states that the explanation
of any phenomenon should make
as few assumptions as possible,
eliminating, or “shaving off,”
those that make no difference
in the observable predictions
of the explanatory hypothesis or theory.

This is often paraphrased as
“All things being equal, the
simplest solution tends to be
the best one.” In other words,
when multiple competing theories
are equal in other respects,
the principle recommends selecting
the theory that introduces the
fewest assumptions and postulates
the fewest hypothetical entities.

It is in this sense that Occam’s razor
is usually understood.

There has been so much going on
the last several weeks I am not even
sure where to begin.

But for now I’ll just say this.

If you have a sincere
interest in U.S. foreign policy and
who like to know the truth of
“why the terrorists hate us” then I would
suggest a few books for you.

The first is Through Our Enemies’ Eyes:
Osama Bin Laden, Radical Islam
& the Future of America

and

Imperial Hubris: Why the West
is Losing the War on Terror by Michael Scheuer
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Scheuer

Another fantastic trilogy of
books is written by Chalmers Johnson,
Blowback: The Costs and Consequences
of American Empire (2000, rev. 2004),

The Sorrows of Empire: Militarism,
Secrecy, and the End of the Republic (2004),
and

Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic (2007)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chalmers_Johnson

Now, if you’re a man or woman
who is truly concerned about
the future of this Republic
then arm yourself with the truth.

Refuse to be cowed by fascistic
chest-thumpers like Sean Hannity
and other neocons who know little
to nothing of the subjects of
which they speak.

Their only strength is circular logic,
historical misinterpretations and outright lies,
and the conflation of facts that
– upon further investigation –
prove not even to be facts.

Think clearly and critically.

Think independently.

Lead the way–
Matt Shannon
