Cassandra moment

I know how this sounds. Egotistical. Boastful. Arrogant. Except – I know I’m right, about my forecasts, provided as commentary via this blog. I flick through paradigms on a subject in the same way idiots read magazines. I know what else is out there and I know why it is wrong. The problem with being too prescient is that no one likes the truth when it requires effort.
For this reason, feel free to dilute my lessons and pass them off as vague urban legend or hell, something that popped into your head in the shower. This applies to the general tone or event, you know what plagarism is. I really want to get these ideas out there, I know it could stem such pain ahead of their proof reality.
So please, use what ideas you’ve seen here. Play with them. If you expand on them, comment about it. 99% of readers are lurkers.

Article: What you can’t say

What scares me is that there are moral fashions too. They’re just as arbitrary, and just as invisible to most people. But they’re much more dangerous. Fashion is mistaken for good design; moral fashion is mistaken for good. Dressing oddly gets you laughed at. Violating moral fashions can get you fired, ostracized, imprisoned, or even killed.

Ideas have fashions too. They have a timeliness and a reactionary component to them.
Useful to anyone beyond the mainstream.
