Letter: Perception can be manipulated
Saturday, August 18, 2012
I am repeatedly amused with the weekly diatribe of columnist Leonard Pitts. His positions are usually couched in a haughty assertion of superior intellect. His logic, however, belies a real understanding of valid premises and deductive syllogism. I suspect that Pitts' true agenda is fomented in his illogical "social justice" paradigms.
Truth is not a figment of perception, for perception can be manipulated. I suspect that the underlying motive of Pitts and those with whom he is politically allied is to distort and control perception to their advantage.
Perception, we are told, is the new reality.
