Centrist Commentary from our Director of Operations


A Word From Robert

It has been said that "In a time of deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act". We do not see Truth as being revolutionary at all. Indeed, we see the act of countering dishonesty and disinformation as fundamental - critical, in fact - in this time when ostensibly trustworthy information sources seek to reshape and color what they want their audiences to believe. Information coming from Social Media and Mainstream Media should, as a matter of course, be regarded if not with a jaundiced eye, then certainly with robust skepticism.


Thomas Jefferson wrote, "Ignorance is preferable to error, and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing than he who believes what is wrong." Often, we are presented with information we either know is false, or some intuition warns us we should verify. Being ignorant of facts, as Jefferson suggests, is not as perfidious as is embracing and promoting falsehoods, whether intentionally or by mistake. 


In the United States, radicals of various types push False Narratives, engage in Confirmation Bias, Straw Man Arguments, equivocation and outright lies to the extent that what to critical thinkers are obvious fallacies, actually resonate with easily-duped malcontents who then take up those banners whether they comprehend the issues or not. Those who employ double standards and hypocrisy are not taken to the mat nearly as often or as forcibly as they should be. The loudest voices, not the most intelligent, command more than their fair share of relevance.  Progressives and other polarized ideologues exploit ignorance by contriving “coalitions” touting “justice”, “intersectionality”, “equity”, and a hodgepodge of neologisms that attract gullible donors – unabashedly for monetary gain.


We at The Centrist Inc. strive to expose such deceit and prevarication, and we devote our work to promoting clarity and productive dialogue as we move forward. All input and discussion are welcome, in fact encouraged. Keeping all of the above front of mind, we would be remiss if we did not mention that we operate strictly on what support we may receive as a 501c3. Donations are gratefully accepted!
