Misdirection & Politics
Short but sweet post for this as you need to do most of the topical reading at the link below:
The gist: “…in the last three years there had been about 13 similar coincidences – a political downturn for the administration, followed by a â€œterror eventâ€ – a change in alert status, an arrest, a warning.”
Coincidences are funny things. I for one am of the opinion that coincidences are impossible, as long as the human understanding of quantum mechanics is even close to correct.
Misdirection is an amazing talent. As a youngster I was fascinated by magic tricks, and I’ve met a few people who flat-out blew my mind with some of the misdirection tricks they demonstrated for me.
Magic isn’t the only arena in which misdirection plays a large part. Read through the link above, or if you’d like you can download the video clip of it (quicktime) here.
Observation: Do you know what the best part about using misdirection in politics is? With magic the subject KNOWS that misdirection is involved with what’s about to happen in front of them, but if misdirection is successfully used in politics you’ll never know until after the fact.
