The Light at the End of the Tunnel

We all know that the current political discourse is toxic and painful. Many blogs and blog readers have checked out because conditions have deteriorated to where many are echo chambers or "choir blogs" that impart no useful information whatsoever.

If you're up for it, below are two blasts from the future, from the set of the gifted, laser minded individuals distinguishing realities decades ahead of us. These two cerebral videos are long by blog standards (10-11 minutes), but deep truth is not captured in a soundbite.

For perspective, one session of my algebra class runs 80 minutes.

I won't live long enough to dip more than a toe into the pool of these realities. At least I got to read about the pool, and more importantly, receive the affirmation that there are others out there who get it. We are getting there, but the progress is so slow, and so painful.

Bring the brain if you click below. Republicans, never mind already.

Awesome!

Sadly, I agree that such awareness becoming common understanding is decades away.

All of those now 55 and up need to die.

Wow.

Thanks for posting these.

Yeah, it's going to be a long time before such awareness is widely distributed.

What refreshing and thought provoking material during a time when America is renouncing truth and intelligence to embrace stupidity, ignorance, and lies.

We are so going to become China's bitch. They will become the next superpower while the US bitches about gay marriage and Muslims.

Who would have thought the US could succumb to worshiping stupidity?

Better craft another exit, x4mr. When the Republicans take power, they will probably move to eliminate the Department of Education and close all public universities.

Governor Brewer is living proof that a college education is a complete waste of time and an unnecessary expenditure.

I like these videos, they are really well done.

However, I feel compelled to say that one should be wary of the light at the end of the tunnel that turns out to be a freight train.

Seriously? Ok, I haven't watched the videos yet, so I could be taking that comment out of context. Then again, I'd sure like to know what context would make a comment like that appropriate.

Is it the whole not being hip thing? `Cause I can be cool, really. Just let me live.
