Wardrobe Malfunction and the Corporate State.
Confirmation bias is built into the probabilistic mathematics of the scientific method. One of the many truths we seek is that there is no single truth Plurality denies hedgemonic precedencey and biasś are born as so many Ptolemaic epicycles in support of un justifiable paradigms.

The most positive thing I can think of for 2013 is to work on the Hypothesis that everything should be questioned, nothing taken for granted. Always mistrust power and authority and only ever submit to its demands as requests and not if they are patently against your own good conscience.
The State the Government , Large Corporations are all sat in the same Boat and like the Titanic any life rafts are reserved for the first Class Passengers. Not a man Jack of them gives a flying hoot about you, your family or your community the best solution, embrace the Bristol Pound( More widely monetary reform), local business and farmers markets. support local community efforts and reject the bullshit of consumerist dream factories.
My aim is not to provide excuses for black behavior or to absolve blacks of personal responsibility. But when the new black conservatives accent black behavior and responsibility in such a way that the cultural realities of black people are ignored, they are playing a deceptive and dangerous intellectual game with the lives and fortunes of disadvantaged people. We indeed must criticize and condemn immoral acts of black people, but we must do so cognizant of the circumstances into which people are born and under which they live. By overlooking these circumstances, the new black conservatives fall into the trap of blaming black poor people for their predicament. It is imperative to steer a course between the Scylla of environmental determinism and the Charybdis of a blaming-the-victims perspective.

What i tell you three times is true.”
