Monologs with Murray, Day Six

The basic premise of a democracy is that, “I may be wrong!”

Our society has continually bombarded us with conflicting bromides.

It is admirable to “have the courage of your convictions”.

It is equally admirable to “keep an open mind.”

In the early years of the revolution in Russia, there was no doubt that Utopia was at hand. “I have seen the future and it works.”


That a civilized nation like Germany would set up sophisticated slaughter factories was unthinkable.


That robber barons like Rockefeller could become the new nobility, The son of a bootlegger could become a revered president?


Kind of shakes your confidence in your precious ego, doesn’t it? What happened to your idealistic convictions?

Now we have the verbally challenged son of a former president leading the country into a preemptive unilateral war, with obviously trumped up charges, and the majority of the public supports him.

And he’s winning! The stock market is rising for all the wrong reasons, but it is rising.

Wrong again!

Voltaire satirically created the pedantic Dr. Pangloss, who argued that we live in “the best of all possible worlds.”

    It’s like they say: “I’m right, the rest of the world is wrong.”

    Or, as aptly said by the King of Siam:

    There are times I almost think
    I am not sure of what I absolutely know.
    Very often find confusion
    In conclusion I concluded long ago
    In my head are many facts
    That, as a student, I have studied to procure,
    In my head are many facts..
    Of which I wish I was more certain I was sure

    Yarrum, Jr.
