A Bad Case of Acute Hypocrisy

Hypocrisy is commonly part of the content of my work. I am fascinated by the contradictions between our thoughts and actions.

Here we have an amazing act of hypocrisy. This list shows the members of congress that accepted and benefited from government farm subsidies, yet voted against expanding the food stamp program.

Crackpot hypocrisy.

Simulation Rules!

“The famous Atlanta Underground…offers southern hospitality with a New Orleans flavor.” What the…? I wasn’t here in those days, but it seems so Atlanta to brag about how the attraction is based on a simulation of another place.

Then again, I feel like, in a nutshell, that’s what I feel the last 35 years of our culture has been all about. Simulation rules! My inner Baudrillard just got very excited.

Time has the power to shape the perception of everything. Watch these promotional videos from the 1980’s to┬ásee a great example of what I mean.
