Why would anyone want to go into Bisbee topix and post? Only a few people post on that forum anyway and everyone knows it. When anyone attempts to engage them or question comments they've made, or the accuracy of their opinions, they respond with personal attacks, in which they righteously proclaim they only speak the truth. They have a strange view of truth. Their misuse of it reminds me of a quote from Alfred Adler, "The truth is often a terrible weapon of aggression. It is possible to lie, and even murder with the truth." Those posters take a small part of the truth and twist it until what is left is a lie. Look at what was done to the city manager, the mayor, the chief of police, the city attorney, Rob Page, Bob Bryant, and Eric Farhner. Do they know how those outside of their small circle view them and their posts? Robert Burns explained such myopic views in a poem he wrote in which he talked about the attendees at his church who had no idea how others viewed them. He described them as seeing themselves as righteous, social leaders, sole holders of the truth, yet body lice crawled on them in plain view of the lesser beings in the congregation. The famous line in that poem spoke the wish that we should all be given the gift to see ourselves as others see us. Are these inflamatory authors socially blind to the day to day reactions of their fellow residents? Are they so damaged as people that they see negative attention as a positive? Do they think they are defending us from some great calamity? What psychological term can explain people who vehemently denounce a small town and it's residents when no tyranny exists? Are they so out of touch with reality? No, they know what they are doing, people can't twist the truth so expertly and be totally blind to reality. The answer is that when a life has otherwise been a failure, when it is without purpose then nothing can fill that void except the driving need to somehow feel special and that becomes their motivation. They see themselves in the guise of political or social prophets who have have suffered but were eventually hailed as heros. A life that is that empty must have larger than life vindication. Unfortunately what they seem unable to realize is that such heroes are rare and that the same rejection faced by a prophet is also afforded to garden variety nuts, and that nuts are more common in Bisbee.

A good example of the truth into lies affliction is the current discussion of Gila Management. Proof that even a review by the attorney general isn't a good enough authority to overcome stupidity when innuendo is on the line.
