alan watt is a scottish born canadian iconoclast with a deep scolarship in history, politics and religion. his view on the current world crisis are, in my opinion, spot on. it makes my opinion of the political, religious and historical state of the world pretty grim...............but one look up from this blog will tell you something`s happening, and it`s not for our benifit.
alan`s perspective isn`t one of the traditional doom-and-gloom types. he doesn`t blame and ridicule the modern leaders so much as point out the historical context by which they are allowed to act.
nietzche said we are better off indulging in the trivial, for fear of learning the truth.
he was right.
