    Hmmmm, I see we have conflicting weather reports! And then came the ideologue….

    Don’t let the rain come down, ah, ah, oh, no
    Don’t let the rain come down, ah, ah, oh, no
    Don’t let the rain come down,
    My roof’s got a hole in it and I might drown
    I say my roof’s got a hole in it and I might drown…

    It’s weird: philosophy until the 1700s was about finding out what the universe was about. Then it became people wanting to obfuscate reality. (Which of course is why its not respected today like it was in the 1600s). Voltaire, Marx, Nietzsche, and so many others since then, their ideas were to take what one could observe, and write something that ignored most of what one could observe in order to propone some philosophic idea that didn’t fit reality.
    .
    Ideas that don’t work seem to keep being resurrected, though. The Democrat Party has adopted 9.0 of the 10 Planks of Marx’s communist manifesto. Despite Marxism being a miserable failure with the Soviets (8.17 planks), Nazis (6.67), etc. Despite more than a quarter billion dead in the 20th century from wars, purges, famine, pestilence, and so on.

    Ya know, Nab, Karl Marx hated the USSR and what it did under the claim of his ideas.
    Don’t believe me? Look it up.
    BTW – Marx is buried in London. England.

    Not just political ideology, religious dogma is the same way. Maybe worse. It is possible, with the right facts, to show a political position is wrong. Argue with someone’s religion, you are arguing with their God.

    This reminds me of ‘The Hitch-hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy’:
    Man In Shack: Are you wet?
    Ford: Wet?! Well, doesn’t it look as if we’re wet?
    Man In Shack: That’s how it looks to me, but how you feel about it might be a different matter. If you find warmth makes you feel dry you better come in.

    But if Exalted Leader — whatever title(s) He has given Himself — says it’s [not] raining you’d bloody well better
    believe it if you know what’s good for you, all evidence of
    your senses notwithstanding.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    Your figures remind me of the old adage,
    “Anyone can make up figures; 87% of all people do it regularly.”
    Yeah, the Democrats are real Marxists, and we’re responsible for the unprovoked deaths of millions.
    Keep preaching what you preach, you make me feel better about not following whatever dogma you swallow whole.

    The precursor of legalism; the origin of lawyers.

    This is only true of ideologies other than my own. Mine is the One True Reality. My observations are without error and should have the force of law. Chief among these infallible observations is that I am infallible and than anybody who disagrees with my assertions of fact are simply mistaken. If they persist in opposing my wisdom, then they are clearly dangerous deniers. I don’t call it heresy because I am very hip and not at all like previous pretenders to knowledge.

    Really funny how most of the regular readers assume that the ideological denial of reality applies more to the political right than the left.

    Oh, knowing Wiley, I expect he had something like that in mind. Always easier to see the other fellow’s faults than your own.
