Jon Stewart inspires me. In my moments of absolute fantasy I imagine I am in some small way contributing to the work he began.
So it gives me great pleasure that he devoted the final moments of his final show to the theme “Bullshit is everywhere.” He cites, for example:
The bullshit of infinite possibility: we can’t do anything because we do not yet know everything.
This, of course, being the justification for failing to act on any problem, such as global warming.
As Jon tells us, “Looking for bullshit is a pleasant way to pass the time. The best defense against bullshit is vigilance. If you smell something, say something.”
I will, Jon, I will.
