Welcome to The Deeper Thought. My name is Yaacov ben Moshe. I have moved here from my old blog The Breath of the Beast in order to begin work on a book.
The working title of the book is Exploded Lies. The basic material will be experimented with here- presented as essays on current events. The book is intended to be a catalog of the Falsehoods, Fabrications, Hypocrisies, Misrepresentations, Distortions, Prevarications Canards, Deceits and Absurdities in our culture. Some of them are very old and well established others are new. It is an inexhaustible list. It could never be complete. There is no end to the lies we tell ourselves and each other. I have made an attempt to select and explode the ones that, in my view, are the most injurious to people and the culture.
In the fall of 1954 I was five years old. It was a plague year, not unlike this year. It was also a politically dangerous year. ’54 was the year I scared my parents very badly. Well, to be fair I was pretty frightening from the outset. I was very premature. It was touch andContinue reading “Between Two Childhood Plagues”
Abraham Lincoln would be on Trump’s side. In his address to Congress on the third of December, 1861 Lincoln outlined how he saw the cultural forces that were dividing The Union.

Who Are We Now? Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket. Eric Hoffer Eric Hoffer had it right about great movements but he need not have limited the idea only to great movements. There is a movement afoot in America today that has been a RacketContinue reading “Who Are We Now?”
The computer model is not God. After I got my MS in Statistical Analysis and Research Methodology, I was involved with all manner of “modeling” for a number of years. I can tell you, computer models are nothing more than a “black box” containing somebody’s theories and (and this is not an unimportant consideration) futureContinue reading “When Liars Figure”
Joe Biden’s candidacy is built on his three outstanding “abilities” : Electability, Plausible Deniability, and (after he is elected) Disposability…. Electability Electability was what got him the nomination. The back room cabal of the Democrat Party thought that Biden was the most electable that they had so they pulled strings to get him the nomination.Continue reading “Disposable Joe”
The Titanic collided with the iceberg at 2:20 on the morning of April 15th 1912. For the United States of America, it is now 2:15 AM. Like the Titanic, we are steaming along in our great ship of state and we are headed straight for our iceberg. Icebergs are elusive in a way, it is wellContinue reading “Is the Iceberg Going to Win?”
Omertà is a lie- the lie of silence. It derives from a Sicilian word umiltà, which means humility- in the sense of subjecting one’s self to a code of secrecy and feigned ignorance.
