Journalism gone to the dogs

You can learn to read. You can learn to write. But no amount of reading or writing can stifle innate idiocy. This is what I realized when I read the Op-Ed page of Deccan Herald yesterday, a Tier-2 newspaper whose pages, I now presume, must be filled with garbage.

It's amazing how easy it is for established fools to get their delusions and prejudiced ideas propagated across India. They could have a deleterious effect on the national psyche...which is decadent anyway.

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
