Quote of the day

Joe Bageant, 1946-2011:

Life is lived anecdotally, not algorithmically. And anecdotal evidence is not allowed in the new digital corpocracy. As one poster on Democratic Underground put it, “Anecdotal now has this enforced meaning such that no one is supposed to believe what they experience, what they see, hear, taste, smell, etc. The Powers That Be have basically extinguished the notion of inductive reasoning. Everything has to be replicated in a laboratory and since 90% of all the labs in this nation are operated by Corporate Sponsored monies, not much truth comes out of them.”

  1. I’m sorry. I didn’t know you were close to him. I’ve heard you encouraging people the way he did for you.
    May he enjoy happiness and the roots of happiness.
