Before Getting Into The Following Editorial . . . All News Pundits – Associated with Major Purveyors of the Media, have a Slew of Fact-Checkers, Editors, Headline Writers & Such, to Supposedly Guarantee Quality & Accuracy – I DON’T.
Instead . . . I Have Anne, who is very Bright, Educated & Well Read – Who Reads each Editorial I Produce Before it is Sent-Out. And Never Once, has Anne Read one of my Editorials without Finding an Error in Grammar, Punctuation and/or Spelling.
HOWEVER . . . That Said – I have Thousands of Editors & Fact Checkers Besides Anne, for which I am Extremely Grateful.
No Matter How Hard I Try To Get It Right . . . Mistakes do Happen. And Even Anne Slips-Up Now & Then. But The Readers Of Galganov.com Don’t.
In the Last Editorial, I got the Date Wrong (The Year Actually), of when the British & French Evacuated from the French Beach of Dunkirk at the Beginning of WWII.
I Wrote 1939. I got the Month and the Days Right . . . but the Year was 1940, as Two of the Readers of Galganov.com let me know in the Comment Section. It was a Mistake, an Honest-To-Goodness no Mal-Intent Meant Mistake – We All Make Them, for which I Apologize.
If I Want To Be Believed 100% Of The Time . . . Then I Have To Be Right 100% Of The Time. I Don’t Have the Right to Make Mistakes such as Dates & Places, even in Honest Error.
So Thank You For Making Me Appear . . . To Be Better Than I Really Am.
Speaking Of Mistakes In Time, Dates & Facts . . . One of the News People on Fox News Kept Referring to Canada’s Forthcoming Federal Election Date as this November. The Date is OCTOBER 21, 2019 . . . And this Fox Newsman has a Bevy of Fact Checkers.
ALSO . . . I’m thinking that the New Galganov.com Podcast is a Success. We still have a lot of Work to do to Make it Better – But We are Really Doing Our Best.
I Always Take Your Comments, Criticisms & Suggestions Seriously.
I’ve Been Considering Speaking About Personal Experiences on the Galganov.com Podcast . . . Mixed-In with Real Current Social & Political Issues. Hopefully that will be of Interest & Benefit to the Listeners. And if you have any Reasonable Requests, Ideas or Suggestions for the Usage & Appearance of the Podcasts, Please let me know by Email or Comment.
THE TITLE . . . “Oh What A Tangled Web We Weave . . . As We Practice To Deceive” (By Walter Scott), is as Appropriate Today, and Perhaps Even More-So, than it was when it was First Written in 1808, in Walter Scott’s Poem – “Marmion”.
What Makes The Title of “Marmion” More Appropriate Today, is by Today’s Means, that we all have at our Disposal, of Disseminating Information On A Global Scale – Especially the Big, So-Called “Reputable” News Media & Social Media Networks (Google, YouTube, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter – Etc), to Misinform Unintentionally, Intentionally, and by Grand Design as Government Propaganda.
What Is Most Terrifying In All Of This . . . Is that Our Educators, from Pre-Kindergarten to Post University, have DUMBED-DOWN the Current Generations, to the Point that Far Too Many of our Children & Young People (Millennials), Certainly in North America, are Absolutely Ignorant of History, Economics & the Real Dog-Eat-Dog World, where there are No Safe-Spaces & where Freedom Of Expression isn’t Contingent on Who Has The Right To Speak.
Our Young People Think They’re Special . . . I’ve got news for them. No One’s Special. They also Believe they’re Entitled. They’re Not. No One Is Entitled. And in the Real World, People “Might” get what they Actually Work For, with a Heavy Emphasis on the Word “Might”. Nothing Is Guaranteed.
There Are Three Certainties In Life – Birth, Death & the Struggles In Between . . . All of Which are Lost on Most of our Youth, because they were Taught (Trained) By People Who Never Left School.
Make No Mistake About It . . . By & Large – Teachers Are Entitled Socialists.
Imagine This . . . Your Children Are Being Taught By Adults, Who Never Left School. Who Have No Life Experiences in the Real World. Who in Far too Many Cases Never Had (Have) to Worry about a Salary, a Job, a Promotion or a Full Pension Paid by the Public, which in many ways are More Generous than what the Working People Earn, and Can Hope to look Forward to in their Working Salaries, who Pay for these Pensions.
Since Our Children Are So Poorly Educated . . . They Don’t know or Can’t know the Difference Between the Truth & Hype; and are Heavily Inclined to Buy Into the World of Propaganda, Myths, Slanted Truths, Conspiracy Theories, Exaggerations, & Outright Lies.
Hence . . . The “Tangled Web We Weave . . . As We Practice To Deceive”, has Come Into the 21st Century through our Education System, to Sufficiently Dumb-Down our People, Enough-So, as to Weaken our Respective Countries to Inside & Outside Threats.
I Apologize When I Don’t Get It Right 100% Of The Time . . . The LEFT Apologizes When They Do.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
