We can fight back against this ridiculous modern time by increasing the complexity and accuracy of our thought, especially since all of the forces in power now want us to do the opposite. They want to dumb us down with superhero movies, two-note politics, and TPS reports.
People of higher cognitive function speak almost an entirely different language, although using the same dictionary, and by recognizing what they are saying, we can move beyond the surface level communication of this time.
Witness Trump on Jeffrey Epstein:
In 2002, Mr. Trump described Mr. Epstein as “a terrific guy,” telling New York Magazine, “It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”
On the surface, this statement means very little. If you look more deeply however, the “many of them are on the younger side” stands out. It is anomalous in a stream of otherwise positive and genial commentary.
In other words, Trump sent up a gentle red flag. He affirmed the socially correct attitude, but then dropped in a signal to tell us that something was a off, namely that the girls were young, as if noting a detail of what is not normal.
With this subterfuge, the statement flew under the radar of mass media, but among accomplished people, the warning would be recognized. Speech of this nature was common only a century ago, but now most people cannot parse it at all.
