" He has complete contempt for humans - a Swiftian character. And what is so interesting psychologically is that he carries it so far as to sail right into the wind. He actually warns Othello against jealousy: 'It is the green-eyed monster, which doth mock/ The meat it feeds on.' Why? Because he knows that to tell people the truth is an effective way of putting them off the scent. Hitler knew this, and practised it to devastating effect: 'the German people have no idea of how they have to be gulled in order to be lead', was the epigraph of MEIN KAMPF, which told everyone exactly what he meant to do - and they wouldn't believe it."
My unbelievable solution to the Simpson case is that it was a media-bred hoax meant to demonstrate the gullibility of the American electorate. The 'national IQ test' was exactly what happened in the story of The Emporer's New Clothes: anyone who failed to see Simpson's guilt was branded an idiot. It was actually a "National Gullibility Test," engineered by a wealthy man intending to move that one step higher into real political power.
Fuhrman might have been media savvy, but how could he guess the way this case would be so relentlessly exploited? The christian brando case a few years before had many of the same scandalous details and involved a much hotter celebrity, yet it came and went without one of the investigators getting spotlighted. why was Simpson such a target?
