BLONDE BITCH

by Rachel Lynch in


Blonde bitches tell it like it is, whether you want it or not. As a journalist someday, I'm aiming to stray far away from the bullshit du jour. I want to dedicate myself to clear concise articles, holding truth in the highest regard. Plenty of things in our world are made up; And made up quite cleverly. For example, the newspapers seem to be engaged in a bizarre attempt to sift through all the inanimate objects of the universe and categorize them as a cause or cure for cancer.  No one thing causes or cures another, it's a combination. And real science studies those. Nutritionists are members of a newly invented bull-shit group who must create a commercial space just to justify their own existence.  They overcomplicated the concept of a healthy diet and lifestyle so you must depend upon them. There is no black curtain. They quote scientific research that, as far as I can tell, does not exist. Google shit instead of paying a motherfucker to do it for you.

The philosopher professor Harry Frankfurt of Princeton University discusses the issue at length in his classic essay, "On Bullshit." Under his model, bullshit is a form of falsehood distinct from lying: the liar knows are cares about the truth but deliberately sets out to mislead; the truth speakers knows the truth and is trying to give it to us; the bullshitter, meanwhile, does not care about the truth and simply goes on trying to impress us. "It is impossible for someone to lie unless he thinks he knows the truth. Producing bullshit requires no such conviction..For the bullshitter, all the best are off: he is neither on the side of the true nor on the side of the false. His eyes is not on the facts at all, as the eyes of the honest man and the liar are. He does not care whether the things he says describe reality correctly, he just picks them out to suit his purpose."

That, my friends, it a perfect description of bad journalism and made-up markets. I refuse to be a part of the clutter. I  intend to live my life where everything I do, say and speak is real. Get real, stay real. It's the only way to do it. Any other way and the belly of the  bullshit will swallow you whole.
