Douglas Rushkoff alerts us that Robert Anton Wilson, the man who literally inspired the name of this blog and what it means, and the mind behind some pretty seminal works of writing, needs our help because his “infirmity and depleted finances have put him in the precarious position of not being able to meet next month’s rent.”

Do what you can. Nuff said.
It’s what I call the “snafu principle.” Communication only occurs between equals–real communication, that is–because when you are dealing with people above you in a hierarchy, you learn not to tell them anything they don’t want to hear. If you tell them anything they don’t want to hear, the response is, “One more word Bumstead and I’ll fire you!” Or in the military, “One more word and you’re court-martialed.” It’s throughout the whole system.
So the higher up in the hierarchy you go, the more lies are being told to flatter those above them. So those at the top have no idea what is going on at all. Those at the bottom have to adjust to the rules made by those at the top who don’t know what’s going on. Those at the top can write rules about this, that and the other, while those at the bottom have got to adjust reality to fit the rules as much as they can.
