For example; if I thought that someone hated me and would tell lies about me then I would tell lies about them. In some strange sense it would be acceptable to my id because of the justification of thought.
Crazy I know. Cornwall’s underbelly politically is very very interesting. Something I will be covering in my new documentary that starts shooting in about a week.
I’m living it right now. I had a hugely interesting discussion with a Cornwall politician last night.
This person is no dummy. No senior who’s disconnected from the realities of living life today either. It was a very impressive exchange and discussion of ideas and issues.
We all are special on this world in our own way. Some people get to use their talents and some remain hidden. Some suggest words are my special talent. They may be right? Of course they may be wrong too because words can get you in trouble. They can upset people especially when there’s this thing called “Truth” behind them.
Some people’s words are like firing off a pellet gun, and some words are like shells from a .45.
Some people spray words around like an Uzi hoping to hit the target, and some people take careful deliberate aim and nail a kill shot.
Yesterday the war of words that has been going on at City Hall hit a new low. I was sent a lawyers letter and it was a doozy. It truly was a magnificent piece of bullying.
Some might call it Libel Chill:
libel chill: situation where speech or conduct is suppressed by fear of penalization at the interests of an individual or group.
Of course I take every message of this type very very seriously. CFN is not just myself. Thousands of you read The Cornwall Free News every day and I imagine some of you actually like it and wish it to be around for awhile longer.
We’re trying to confirm if Cornwall City Tax Dollars are being spent on this attack; this attempt to muzzle your voice; not only mine.
In the meanwhile the lights are still on; the internet is still flowing; and my and the contributors to CFN’s words will still be fired into the darkness of the night hoping to find light and resonate with you our valued and treasured viewers.
