An Inconvenient Truth

An inconvenient truth about truth

Inconvenient

Causing problems or difficulties:

An inconvenient time/place
It will be very inconvenient for me to have no car.

Injustice – Justice

Injustice is a situation in which there is no fairness and justice.
Justice (fairness) is the condition of being morally correct or fair. Justice is fairness in the way people are dealt with.

Cambridge Dictionary

We have vaccine fantasists, climate deniers and people who fiddle with statistics on refugees in the name of the country.

All these people come into our world at random and,
indeed, one of them became President of the USA.

The result: opinions are sold as facts and facts are put away as opinions.

Our society has gone beyond the truth.

Een ongemakkelijke waarheid over waarheid

We hebben vaccinatiefantasten, klimaatontkenners en lieden die in naam van het vaderland met statieken over vluchtelingen rommelen.

Al die mensen komen zomaar onze wereld binnen en
sterker nog, één van hen werd president van de VS. 

Het gevolg: meningen worden als feiten verkocht en feiten als meningen weggezet.

Onze samenleving is de waarheid voorbij.

6 Professor Michael Sandel of the Harvard University:

What is Justice?

What is right and what is wrong?

Transcript interview with professor Michael Sandel (extract at 11:15)

Michael I travel all over the world now and I am keenly sensitive to issues of poverty inequality in my life.

I’ve seen a lot of it. I see so many people from all over the world who are working for nothing, who are working for nothing and they are making tons of money through their labour countries and corporations. Michael it’s just not right.

Answer:

Well this is one of the biggest questions of justice 

including global justice that we face today. The growing gap between rich and poor, between the haves and the have-nots, and so it’s a question that rises within countries what can we do about the gap between rich and poor within a society and in the US.

A social system, society, or organization in which people get success or power because of their abilities, not because of their money or social position:

The company is a meritocracy. Good work is rewarded with promotions.

Cambridge Dictionary

A country or social system where people get power or money on the basis of their ability.

13 A Serial Liar

Stéphane Bourgoin, self-proclaimed expert on serial killers: “I lied. I apologise”.

Stéphane Bourgoin, self-proclaimed world expert on serial killers, author of nearly forty books, regular guest on television, presented himself as a victim. 

In 1986, he would have discovered the sordid murder of his companion. She never existed. Some of his books are in fact plagiarisms of investigations carried out by American profilers.

Of the 77 serial killers he claims to have interviewed, only ten or so were actually interviewed. He has not met Charles Manson, the murderer of Sharon Tate, Roman Polanski’s pregnant girlfriend. 

Nor has he been a professional footballer with the Red Star. Stéphane Bourgoin has invented a life for himself over the past forty years. He admits it in an interview he gave us on Sunday 10 May. 

Listen to the interview with Sandrine Briclot.

Stéphane BOURGOIN

Stéphane Bourgoin (born 14 March 1953) is a French true crime writer. He presented himself as an expert on serial killers for many years, until 2020 when he admitted that he had lied about many of his claimed experiences.[1] Bourgoin had written 75 books and produced dozens of documentaries, with his books selling thousands of copies in France. 

He was regarded as France’s best known serial killer expert. He occasionally lectured police on the subject, and critiqued media depictions of serial killers.

Biography
Stéphane Bourgoin was born in Paris on 14 March 1953, one of four children of Jean Bourgoin [fr], a military engineer. He was expelled from high school three times and does not hold any diploma.

Bourgoin claimed to have moved to the United States in the early 1970s, where he allegedly found his then-girlfriend murdered, raped and mutilated by a serial killer in 1976 in Los Angeles. He said that the event led him to try to understand what goes on in the mind of serial killers, but in 2020, Bourgoin confessed that the story was in fact an invention drawn from the case of Susan Bickrest, murdered at age 24 by serial killer Gerald Stano in 1975.
