Around the time President Obama received the Nobel Prize, early in his presidency, early enough to raise concern as to why he got it, I wrote the letter “Revisionism circa 2029” . My theory at the time was that history has always been prone to revision, but modern media such as television and the Internet speed the process of revision, making it a scientific certainty. In my letter, I supposed it might take 10 to 20 years before the process of revision began.
I’m a silly person and was mistaken. Obama’s presidency isn’t even over yet, and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, also a Nobel Prize winner, has gone to bat with a Rolling Stone article, “In Defense of Obama.”
The work of the president, and the impact it’s had and is having, is being falsified as my words are being typed. It appears every man, woman and child in the world is beholden for the peace and prosperity they must be enjoying. ObamaCare is a roaring success and is causing no one upset, physical harm or financial hardship. The Federal Reserve is a fine and responsible organization and had nothing to do with the real estate meltdown of 2008. There is no reason to intercede against Wall Street, and drone missile strikes are not acts of violence.
I already admitted that I can be a bit of a flake, but it seems the purpose of the Nobel Peace Prize is mass deception. Why should the military/industrial complex have to take a loss over some silly old nursery rhyme about world peace?
